So many countless questionable decisions. Honestly, he has had two horrific years as a head coach, and really, it all started with the Phoenix series where he showed his true hand.
Role players over talent.
The microcosm of the Predators under Barry Trotz's leadership: Go watch game 5 of the Hawks/Predators series:
Trotz should have been fired after this series. I still cannot fathom how he retained his job AFTER this series and AFTER the Phoenix debacle. Turns in two straight seasons of pathetic Predator hockey while "getting back to the Predator's identitiy."
Poile is another matter.
I'm absolutely certain Poile had as much to do with Radulov sitting for rule breaking as Trotz.
In reality, with a s*** first line of SK-Fisher-Erat, Trotz should be applauded for getting that team to the 2nd round. Our 2nd line was **** too, until the mentally challenged, yet talented Radulov came back to play Poile for a fool again.
Poile can start saying we need our forwards to score more-- No *** Sherlock. We've known that for our whole lives, yet his answer to that has been to go out and get guys like Hendricks, Cullen, Nystrom, Staalberg, etc, etc, etc.
We either have the worst or 2nd-to-worse group of forwards (between us and Buffalo). That's GM problem, not a coaching problem.
