If that isn't a damning stat ... I don't know what is
I really like Trotz, but I have no problem with him getting fired if it is deserved, so I'm no apologist.

However, I'd like to see the league average against playoff teams on the road and I'd like to see the record against playoff teams on the road of the other 7 western playoff teams. Without some comparison, being under .500 (.395) against playoff teams on the road isn't all that shocking or meaningful a statistic, imo.

If everyone is similar against playoff teams on the road, it's certainly not damning. If everyone except Nashville is over .500, then perhaps I'd agree.

As far as I'm concerned, if Nashville went 19-0 against playoff teams on the road and lost in the first round, I'd be unhappier with Trotz than I would with his current record and a win in the first round and a hard-fought loss in the second round.
