Coach Wars! Rnd1: Craig Hartsburg vs Barry Trotz

Okay folks, this is Coach Wars! the game where coaches war against other coaches in a battle to the death. Winners from each match will carry over into further rounds until the GM (Grand Master) is announced. Each poll will automatically close after 5 days from the post date.

This is the first match of round 1. Brackets are set up randomly, and have nothing to do with the respective team's finish in the standings. I find this spices it up more, and makes some matches more interesting than they would be otherwise. If you have suggestions for a match, feel free to post it.

Feel free to include non-NHL experience in your arguments for a particular coach. This includes minor-league coaching ability, trophies, etc.

Craig Hartsburg (OTTAWA) vs Barry Trotz (NASHVILLE)

Craig Hartsburg was signed by Ottawa in June of '08 as their new head coach for the 08-09 season. He has coached previously in the NHL, with Chicago (95-98), and Anaheim (98-00). His latest achievements have been leading the Canadian World Jr teams in '07 and '08 to gold medals.
Previous Season Record: 44-18-6 (OHL)
Total Record: 184-190-64

Barry Trotz is the first and only head coach of the Nashville Predators.He's spent 10 years behind the Nashville bench, coordinating a very fast, skilled, scoring team. Last year he squeezed his team into the playoffs in 8th place, when many pundits predicted Nashville to miss the post-season altogether.
Previous Season Record: 41-32-9
Total Record: 324-308-106

Rnd 1: Wayne Gretzky vs Denis Savard
Rnd 1: Michel Therrien vs Craig MacTavish
Rnd 1: Claude Julien vs Tony Granato

Would people rather discuss the top 5 goal scorers for the season for the umpteenth time? Comment!

Maybe this poll should be made after this season when Hartsburgh actually gets to show something?

It is no simply for them, I want to do all coaches.

Besides, Hartsburg has plenty of non-NHL credentials to stand up.

I'll take the guy with recent and past success over the guy who's just about to return to the NHL.

Trotz.

Unfair poll

Hartsburgh hasn't even coached a game and you're comparing him to a guy that almost won the Jack Adams a couple of years ago?

This a stupid poll. Hartsburg has not even coached a single season game or even coach a full season.

Yes, he has.

I believe some of you don't understand what this poll is. Do not just compare their previous seasons... It is their coaching abilities as a WHOLE. I'm drawing them randomly.

Maybe we should wait till, you know, Hartsburg actually coaches an NHL game before making this poll?

Some people need to be less 'Sen'sitive.. this isn't hate poll towards the senators.. He is doing this with all 30 coaches in a bracket situation, lighten up.. Anyway Trotz has gotten so much out of so little.. His team plays at the league minimum every year and they are always in the hunt for playoff position..

Gotta go with Hartsburg!

He has gotten an NHL team to the 2nd round of playoffs (96 Blackhawks), while Mr. Trotz is currently a 0-4 in his chances and has a playoff record of 6-16 compared to Hartsburg's playoff record of 8-8!
