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.
I agree with all of this pretty much.. we have a great team and we still get dominated most of the time. maybe its the system and we continually never get over the hump. if this year is another one and done, that will be 6 out of 7 years in the playoffs that we exited the 1st round and out of 7 playoff appearances we would manage to have won 1 measly series.. 1 playoff series win.
