Also, just throwing this one out there: Barry Trotz.
Before you shoot that one down, remember this: Trotz had to be a defense first coach because he was never given offensive pieces to work with. That's why Nashville went belly up this year. Our lack of a sniper nonwithstanding, this team still has more offensive chips than Nashville ever had and perhaps Trotz could get something more out of them that he couldn't do with the slop he was given with the Predators. He also knows the division already so we're not starting from scratch.
Or I might just be talking out my ass.
I completely forgot about Trotz. Should Hitch get fired, I'm not opposed to Trotz, although it will be hard pulling for King Koopa after disliking him for so long. But I did it with Hitch, so what do I know?
Somebody I know suggested Trotz a week or so ago. I'm not strictly opposed to that, but he doesn't jump out at me either. If we are going to fire Hitch, I'm intrigued by MacInnis.
I'm still not there on firing Hitch and think he's taking an inordinate amount of blame for this. But, I'm less opposed to it than I was at first. Maybe he has taken us as far as he could. I don't know.
