Because of the time difference I'm almost never able to watch a Nashville game. But I see that his TOI has steadily gone up since his return from injury. In the last few games he also collected some points.

The Predators play a very defensive oriented style and it makes me wonder, if Trotz's system holds a guy like Josi in his offensive development back? He was a dominant offensive force at last year's WC and before in the Swiss National League. Also, when you see that a guy like Suter suddenly puts up huge numbers on another team, it really begs the question if Trotz should alter his coaching style.
Josi has played really well and aside from his injury early this season he has been great. His point production has even started to increase and he is our best D-man when it comes to carrying the puck into the o-zone and creating scoring chances off the rush. He is well worth the contract he recently got and I see him playing on our top pairing for a long time along side Weber.
