#2520555 Puck Daddy: Trotz Head Coach for Caps

Posted by FireCaptain on 14 May 2014 - 11:28 PM


The Capitals contacted Trotz, who is arguably the most coveted coach currently on the market, not long after they dismissed Adam Oates and George McPhee in late April, and there is mutual interest.

“They were one of the first teams to reach out and asked what my plans were. I told them I would like to coach and they said they would love to talk to me. But obviously, they’re in the search for their general manager right now,” Trotz said in a phone interview. “From my standpoint of wanting another opportunity, a lot of things excite me about the Capitals and the other teams that are out there. A new challenge, to me, is really exciting.”


Seems like Trotz is pretty interested in Washington.

Pretty sure Nashville's not going anywhere.


The article is about expansion, not relocation..



I can't wait until the Saskatoon Panthers and the Halifax Predators are actual teams in the NHL.

You're a girl. Girls don't poop. Therefore, this statement is impossible.. or is it?


/mind blown

I just want to light an effing turd on fire and throw it directly at Jonathan Toews. While it would probably not change his "I constantly smell a swamp fart" facial expression, it would be highly cathartic for yours truly.



edit: wait.. you never said 'light YOUR turd'..

#2519698 Peter Laviolette Hired as Predators' Coach

Posted by FireCaptain on 08 May 2014 - 12:08 AM

da fuq? hahahaha


He read your mind.. or you read his..


Today, Laviolette was able to explain for himself how his preferred style of play should bring more goals to the Predators.

“My system has been successful for many years. Primarily, instead of having one guy forward, I send two. The main thing I do is send guys in on the attack,” Laviolette said. “I don’t want people to think I’m going to come in and play reckless hockey. We are going to play fast and aggressive, but we’re not going to give up a ton of opportunities either. The more you play offense, the less you have to play defense.”




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.

Don't forget that the league controls the club's official website now. They started that a few years back to (I guess) 'standardize the product' amongst all the team. If you notice, they all use a very similar template.



Did a quick search - the change dates back to 2006. (Why I remember crap like this, I have no idea.)




Newsday (now in the process of being bought by Cablevision): The legal battle over marketing turf dates to 2006, when team owners voted 25-3 to approve transfer of all 30 teams' digital rights to the league, mimicking a "unitized" Internet business model used by the National Football League since 1999 and Major League Baseball since 2001. The Rangers cast one of the "no" votes...At the heart of the conflict is MSG's belief that, as a big-market team, the Rangers should be free to find new revenue streams outside the limits of market-sharing restrictions.




Another point I wanted to mention is the "stay connected 24/7" who the hell wants that ? The PR guys should realize one thing, people are looking at the official homepage to get that stuff of information and don't want to use third party sites/plugin in order to get the information they are looking for. So how about making the Wings homepage better ? Finding videos on the site is tedious (can't even see the day time) and there really is not a ton of news.

Trotz is definitely winning the war of public opinion.


He took out a full page newspaper ad to thank the fans for their support.
