Since the lockout (remember how all the rule changes were going to benefit the preds?), all but Florida have also made the playoffs and flamed in the first round, Minnesota has even won their division.

Faltering down the stretch and going out in the first round every season is not a great coaching job. This is as good as it gets with Trotz, he's been useful in the past (or was that a hinderance?), but he cannot motivate his team to the next level when it matters. And Poile's record of mediocrity is three times as long.
