Wow talk about a 180 turnaround, Laviolette is the exact opposite of Trotz system. Nothing against your Preds but I don't think they have the personal to play his style also really bad for Rinne's stats.

I somewhat agree, but sometimes drastic change is needed. There is still a whole offseason to work on things, make a few impact signings and/or deals. Barry's Preds are the only Preds we've ever see so it's rational to think an entirely different playstyle is incapable but you never know. 

 

Good luck this upcoming season Predsfan, I hope this spells turnaround in a good way for your squad and they begin back down the path of success. And I hope Weber gets a big splinter.  :cheesy:

I could see more offence a bit of a sales pitch to the fans.

 

Im sure they have gotten better down there but in a place like Nashville big goals and big hits help sell the game.

Pavel datsyuk is the best player in the world because he snatches the puck from unsuspecting players and  follows it up by the simultaneous undressing of the defence pairing.  The end result is a calm skate back to his bench  where he can bask in the praise of his multiple girlfriends from the motherland.

Don't worry. Preds will make a push to trade for Kindl to solidify their D. They may also sign veteran Cleary for leadership.

Yeah, why hire a guy who's been to two Finals with two separate teams?

Guy with ton of playoff pedigree. Also a great guy and vocal coach. I think preds fans should be happy trotz and his system clearly had a ceiling
Get me a real fourth line Kenny!

I think this is an excellent move. Laviolette is a good coach and a proven winner. The system the Preds have in place now has been good at maximizing returns based on minimal investment, but this speaks to some extra ambition on Poile's part. Sure, they could have kept Trotz, kept drafting well, kept losing their talent to other teams without moving past the first round of the playoffs. It would have worked but stagnation is no way to run a team.

 

Nashville needed a new voice. Combined with the right personnel moves, this could yield some pretty big results.

Unless they are planning some big moves, they don't have the skill set for his coaching style

I like this move. Laviolette gets the most out of his teams, turns them into overachievers.

 

The Preds are set in goal (Rinne) and on the back end (Weber et al.) Now they have to work on the offense, and I expect them to do just that. This is a good first step. And, fortunately, this summer's UFA class boasts a number of forwards who would, I think, work really well in Nashville. Sign two of them and I'm bullish about the future of the Preds.

 

Side note: Is there any chance Hornqvist gets moved, PredsFan? What if they felt they could get more of a pure scorer? I'd seriously consider trading Nyquist (+ more) for him. We miss Holmstrom almost as much as we miss Lidstrom.
