15 years is a bit too long for a single coach. 

 

Curious to see what a fresh face behind the bench could do for them.

One of the best in the game IMO.

 

If I'm the Leafs, Canucks, or Oilers, I'm looking hard at this guy.

Like everyone else, I'd like to see what he could do with a more talented lineup. Of course, he might be one of those guys whose thing is squeezing the most out of not-a-lot, and it might be a disaster. It'll be interesting. Sounds like Weber's not happy.

My guess: Trotz is the next Maple Leafs coach. Unlike Randy "I won a cup because I had Pronger and Niedermayer on different defense pairs" Carlyle, Trotz can teach real structure and discipline.

 having mixed feelings about this,i like trotz and he is a good coach that works hard with what he has got,but as shea weber said yesterday after losing to the Stars:It sucks. I hate it. Everyone in here hates it, and it's not a good feeling. Something's got to change. We have to get better, and we have to find a way to get into the postseason."

Yeah.  Trotz seems like a good coach and in the past he's done a lot with very little.  

 

I don't think he's the source of the Predators problems but after 15 years it probably is time to mix things up.  If he's let go in Nashville I have a feeling he'll have a new job in the NHL very soon.   And it'll be interesting to see who they get that's an upgrade.

As long as it's not Blashill, I don't really care.

It would be interesting to see him in Toronto or Edmonton. I think those are the teams that need to look at Trotz. It's rough to see this guy lose his job...I like him, but I can barely tolerate the Sexual Predators. Hope he lands on his feet.


Uhh...you might want to duck!

If they have any sense at all, the Aquilini's fire Torts & swap him for Trotz as soon as he hits the open market.

He'll have no issue finding another job.  That guy has done incredibly well despite having scant resources to work with.  I'm not sure he'd do as well in Toronto, where the pressure valve is turned up to 11.  I'd love to see what he could do with all the talent in Edmonton, though.  Talk about a change of venue!

 

I hate to say it, but if we ever lost Babcock, I'd hope Kenny would give a long hard look at Trotz for our squad.  He's a coach.

I think they need to keep Trotz and get rid of Weber.  I'd reluctantly take him as a service to the Preds in order to help them get back into the playoffs.

Guy won't be without a job for long, can easily see him becoming the next Leafs or Canucks or even Oilers coach (if Lowe gets the boot)

If this is true, how long until a majority of people are calling for Babcock's firing? Yikes.

Trotz takes a year off, Babcock decides to step down after next season, Trotz takes over.  Him and Tippet are the only 2 active head coaches I'd consider over Babcock.


Oh this young man has had a very trying rookie season, with the litigation, the notoriety, his subsequent deportation to Canada and that country's refusal to accept him, well, I guess that's more than most 21-year-olds can handle... Ogie Ogilthorpe!

It's gonna be a sad day,when coach trotz is fired,he is after all the he only coach the Predators have ever known in their 15-year history, became the longest-tenured head coach in the NHL.

I'd consider Hitchcock...if Babs ever stepped down.

 

If Weber wants to get in to the playoffs every year, he needs to demand a trade to Detroit.  I will give them 5 first round picks, Almqvist, Franzen and included to Poile his own LC franchise.

He should demand a trade to pittsburgh,if he wants to make the playoffs every year,No offesense to the Detroit Red Wings

 

 

 

but we all know that he isn't going anywhere,he has accepted that he is a nashville predator for a long time

There is a rumor going around that is he is going to step down and call it quits completely after 15 years as an NHL coach. His family loves nashville too much,so it maybe to  the best decision

 

 

i have no link to this rumor right now
