Interestingly, firing the coach mid season usually results in about a nine game DROP in performance, and then the team is back to where they were.
Winnipeg had an uptick, but now they're coming back.
I think Trotz should go, but I wouldn't expect miracles from the next guy.
the problem with your line of thinking is, Trotz isn't a "losing" coach. He has a lifetime winning record, and is exactly .500 this year with a team missing its all star goaltender
