Got some questions about Trotz.

Specifically, does he emphasize a lot on the PK and defensive assignments in practices? Nashville's PK record over the last decade is really quite good, so just wondering how much of that is due to Trotz.

Associate Coach Brent Peterson (who should have been named a head coach in this league a long time ago) runs the PK units both at practice and in games under the guidance of Coach Trotz. They've each been here since the start and I don't think either could have done as much without the other by his side. They make for a great team.

I think it has more to do with the players we are built upon. Same goes for our lack of success on the PP. We are built with hard working, detailed, two-way players. I think that provides a great base to work with and is a major reason for our success over the years on the PK.

Now, if we could finally develop a real power play! Wow, we'd be a threat to anyone out there, then!

We will never have a great powerplay... Trotz said so in a radio interview earlier this week, he said we just don't have and won't get the players to make it really good. Didn't say that it shouldn't be more consistent and that it shouldn't be better than it is and able to score some more timely goals... just that it will never be among the league's best units.

Once Ellis is up the PP should be OK. HIm and Weber will be better than Shea and Suter are as a #1 PP pairing I think. And Blum and Suter are nice for the second unit for sure not a massive drop off.

The forwards will never be ideal but one playmaker changes everything. I don't think the team is in the position to add that guy this offseason but next trade deadline or next summer when Dumont's deal runs out a PP specialist could be had and change everything. You put a guy like Marc Savard on the Preds and he might not be a great fit at even strength or really fill and role that Trotz would want out of him but the PP would be fixed immediately.

Radulov coming back might help. Anyway to give him his money so he doesnt feel handcuffed by the years until he can be a FA? I know he loves Nashville and only bolted because of the dollars. Maybe he can bring a guy like Jagr with him looking for one last crack.

The way Trotz has the team oriented and doesn't play his fourth line a lot they can get a one dimensional PP guy who's nearing 40 and keep him on the fourth line it doesnt have to be a superstar costing a lot of money. The point isnt the problem either, right now Penalty Killers can overload on Shea but that will not always be the case.

I dont think the organization made a mistake getting a guy like Fisher to help them the way they are built currently than getting someone who would be an odd fit but would drastically help the man advantage I think they made the correct move.

Nylander and Zherdev could be had for peanuts this offseason and be great PP specialists. Would keep the forward prospects in Milwaukee and save potentially some entry level years.

If the organization doesnt get out of the first round and stands by Trotz I would expect them to do something like this to help the power play.
