now i still think we have had great success since the lockout. but we're nothing more than decent.. a little better than average.
trotz has definitely gotten more out of certain rosters. but he has also gotten less out of certain rosters (06,07,12) .. its not out of the question to challenge trotz's position.
those who disagree are either content on what we have accomplished out of fear of change that made lead to the team leaving (missing the playoffs consecutive years) or just straight up love trotz (probable for alot lol)
So getting to the playoffs in 07-08 with the post firesale roster is equivalent to the 2011-12 Canucks with the Sedins, Kesler, Burrows?
years we've had the fire Trotz mantra. Go back to last summer and the first 8-10 weeks of the season when this place was full of nothing but wailing and moaning. Now those very same people are complaining that the team they proclaimed would miss the playoffs and enjoy a lottery pick isn't dominating in this series. The bi polar nature of complaints amazes me.
Trotz sucks, we need to fire him in the first month or two of the season. Oh, wait, he coached the team to the #4 seed? Fire him if he doesn't win it all. If the team wins tonight with the juggled lines, they'll just be a new litany against him tomorrow.
