We were a 4/5 seed playing the hottest team in the league-- one that had more talent as well. And we had significant injuries too boot.
Trotz takes what's usually a bottom 5 group of talent and turns them into a playoff team.
Honeslty, I think Trotz and Mitch Korn have saved Poile's a$$.
Korn turned Dunham into a decent goalie. Turned Vokoun into elite. Turned AHL goalies Ellis and Mason into decent NHL goalies. Turned Peks into high-end goalie.
Without good goal tending and good coaching, I'd doubt we'd be any better off than Atlanta.
Ff it was me, Poile would be gone. He's good at building a foundation, but has a 27 year history of not getting beyond that. And I think we are seeing the reasons why-- lack of boldness, little creativity in trades, unable to draft scorers, and overall, just too passive to bring us to the next level.
But, I doubt either one goes anywhere.
