At this point I would be okay w/ just calling the whole AHL team up and letting them play as I doubt they could do any worst. This whole team stinks.

If they are going to tank/lose at least they could be more entertaining. They are playing some really boring hockey lately. Just no energy.

And the Predification begins.....

Trotz seems to want the offensively-minded blueliner — who once had 41 points in a season — to learn more how to play Nashville’s lower-risk style of hockey.

So. How bad was it? I didn't even look, I'm not really in the caring mode right now.

(Two funerals - one today and one sometime next week - will do that for you.)

How can 5 teams be worse than the Predators?

I'm not sure I get the benching. Let me make it clear, if you are going to bench someone, this is probably the ideal time - the team is struggling, lots of travel, multiple back to backs... Etc. With that said, we are taking an offensive defense men, not giving him power play time and having him babysit Ellis or Jones. Of course his line is going to make mistakes. I'm not claiming MDZ hasn't had some mistakes, but there have been so many other players with more mistakes or worse play that I just don't know what to say.

Last point, that we are benching defensemen when it is our pathetic offense costing us games ..... Well .... It truly is the Predators way. This is one of the worst run even strength offensive attacks I have ever seen: miscast lines, poor gameplan, lack of talent, poor ice time distribution.

Wow...another goose egg. We are now ranked 29th in goals.

Side note: This tells you how bad Buffalo is. They are 30th...with 32 fewer goals. Whoa!!

That .... Is really bad. I wonder if most of that difference is due to our power play effectiveness!?!?

Fire Trotz because he can't develop forwards who can score. Challenging his decisions with defensemen is stretching it.

I saw this mention from @virgiltrucks - this team has either scored one goal or less in a whopping 25 games this season. And that number will go up before everything is said and done.

Wow.

Agreed. He commented that MDZ was great the first few games here, but has had some mistakes over the last few games. I haven't even noticed him over the last couple weeks. He's probably right. I wouldn't get too crazy about this...

Exactly. Jones plays like he's exhausted. He needs a break for rest if nothing else.

Yeah I just think w/ his inexperience and age he's still learning and will make mistakes and for that reason should have limited ice time but then gradually increase it once he starts improving. Right now the amount of time he is getting is probably taxing.

Heaven forbid a coach has expectations for a player. But I guess that's just for HF board fans..... MDZ had the same issues in NY he got comfortable here and returns to doing what he wants to do. As the article points out he has 310 NHL games. He has always been touted as a offensive defenseman. Well how has he done since coming to Nashville? To save your time looking it up 3 assists in 18 games. Whats funny KK has had a goal and 3 assists in the Rangers uni. I never liked the trade and what does it matter we got a younger player that needs a new contract and to beat it all "Michael Del Zotto's qualifying offer is for $2,900,000".

MDZ's game is not a good fit for this team, he admits he loves the streach pass. Problem is we have nobody that can receive that pass. MDZ is weak in the corner and invisible most of the time. I do recall a nice hip check just after they came back from the break but other than that he has done nothing positive.

Poor Trotz gets hammered here for coaching and making coaching decisions. He also gets hammered for not doing so. WHile It would probably benefit Jones to watch a couple games from the pressbox if for nothing else just to see the way the other defenders play. Jones is a smart guy and is willing to change his game and get better. I just do not see that in MDZ.

At this point I'm almost ready for them to race for the 'bottom' as much as possible... Calling up the kiddos from Milwaukee won't help the end result here this season and will be better served playing for a playoff-run in the AHL.

Plus, how many spots can we move up if we lose-out?

Sorry Joe. Been there, done that. I wish you all the best but I can't even get over my blues as well.

Eh, isn't Jones the only one who's on a streak to play every game? Not that it should or does matter, but there, I'll throw that explanation out why he wasn't scratched instead of MDZ.

I don't have the will power or strength to suggest how to fix this. DEPRESSING!

Except Trotz is NOT the answer.
