We can not seem to get "over the hump" passing Detroit in the standings, beating Detroit etc, getting past the first round (one exception was last season). The one consistent has been Trotz. We are easily pushed around, no one stands up for each other except in rare instances. Once again the consistent presence of Trotz. He is a good/great coach but the failure to take the franchise from good to great has got to be considered.

Additionally, why do we not have any top line forwards? Oh right, because Poile doesn't draft them. If they are drafted, Trotz turns them into 2 way forwards who forget how to score. Wilson could be a force for us but Trotz continually punishes him for "mistakes" when his vets are making the same damn mistakes!

Maybe it's not a personnel issue but a coaching/management issue. It's time for this franchise to go from being the little team that can to the team that does.
