I'm not even going to get into a pi$$ing match over this with you. I've been coaching and playing hockey for more then 30 years. Weber and Suter are one of the better pairs in the league, that cannot be argued. Suter played Nash 1x1 the entire night and shut him down. He was a non factor in the game. And yes there were games when Legwand had that duty and did it pretty well. But since he's just coming off an injury maybe the coaching staff felt that Suter would be the better choice for this game. Either way, Nash was ineffective. I really don't think it's coincidence that he plays bad against Nashville.

FWIW it's been over a year since I talked with Trotz. Last discussion was about team building, not defense pairings.
