Fare thee well, King Koopa.

(Prediction: he ends up in Toronto if they fire Carlyle.)

Just about to post this. Helluva tenure for an NHL coach.

I never liked the guy. I couldn't tell you why though. He had off and on success recently, but quite honestly, he should have been fired a long time ago when he didn't get results early on...I was shocked they kept bringing him back, and then he had SOME success and had a couple good regular season teams...but that was about it.

I just have to respect the fact that he's been there since day 1 for the franchise. I know it's easier said than done, but Nashville has built something really solid there. They've got a good following for only being around 16/17 years. But it all started with instilling a Coach and a GM and giving them time and patience to build something, and they did. There were a couple of really good Preds teams mixed in there. It's hard when you've gotta let some of your better players walk because of money/market size, all of that. But credit where credit is due and Trotz helped give that team an identity.

This answers the question of who's available after the Blues flame out and Hitch gets fired.

Good signing, should be a good fit in Nashville.

I agree but they're still built in the Trotz mold. There's only so much he's going to be able to do to "change" the way the Preds play the game (this assuming he wants to) when they're still a defensive first team. I'm really curious how Seth Jones looks next season. Heck of a rookie campaign, he and MacKinnon are going to be stars in this league, you can already tell.
