That was fun to watch. Sure we gave up some goals but the players looked like they were having fun. Then we sent Forsberg to Milwaukee and the wheels fell off. Not saying him not playing was the cause but it sure looked like the team did not like that call by the way they played.

Since Sully left, the Preds have had no real big top 3 threat. Lombardi might have been if not for the concussion. We have some good young top 6 forwards but I feel the Trotz way is hampering their progression and skills. I will always pull for the Preds, will not want to tank but I do think a change (Trotz first) is needed if this team, or future teams, is to move forward and become the team we all want them to be.

Well said and the key words here...." The players looked like they were having fun!" I did catch one of those games and as a fan of hockey and Preds being one of my favourite teams.....it was way more fun to watch!
Good luck tonight! May only catch "bits and pieces" tonight
