      Wow. It seems to me the team never recovered from the ridiculously long road trip waiting on UBS to open, and then didn't they experience a boat load of postponed games due to covid protocols? They clearly underachieved thjs season after two straight trips to the conference final and ultimately losing to the team that raised the Cup, but I would have figured another year in case it was a blip. They got further with Trotz, a Cup winning coach in his own right, than they did over the last 30 seasons.

        For some yes, but we never really know since reporting is sparse and USA Hockey never speaks on it, something that should change. USA Hockey needs to start calling these guys out, especially USNTDP alums.

          It’s got Seth Jones and, uh, ummm… Well it’s got Seth Jones.

          Let’s see, no Zegras, Caufield, Eichel, Werenski, Kane, DeBrincat, Stastny, Wheeler, Hellebuyck, Jack or Quinn Hughes.

          It’s mystery why USA Hockey is so fucking terrible at the Senior Men’s level…
          Because nobody gives a crap about the World Championships.

                Trotz was not the problem. He's a great coach and if this was truly a firing based on failure to produce then the new Isles owners are as big dumbass-es as Wang was.

                If he was willing to stay this was a terrible decision. I am disappoint.

                  It is odd that a guy who wins a Cup is allowed to leave and then the same guy leads his next team to more success since most of the current team could skate or was even born and is tossed aside yet again. I suppose it possible there is some sort of issue with Trotz, but I'm betting its about a thousand times more likely ths is just idotic behavior from the front office.

                    Agree (well, Canada doesn't either). But you were talking about Team USA, so I stand by my comment.

                        Winging it in Motown had a good take on that:
                        "Trotz is an interesting case in that there are plenty of reasons he wouldn't end up as Detroit's coach (he wants a team closer to contending and Yzerman wants a coach who doesn't want his job), but if he does end up here it would solve those questions."

                        I'm..... not sold on Trotz. It seemed despite the great relationship between Milwaukee and Nashville, for every single "home grown talent," a dozen never got the chance or were mismanaged when called up. (Part of that may have been the GM, and thr assistants, I don't follow the Preds *that* close.

                        I can't see the Wings being *that* close to turning this around. But, I could be wrong.

                          This is going to be rambly - sorry.

                          I also didn't follow Nashville closely either. I just remember Trotz being with the Preds forever. That makes me think he can be patient with an organization. Of course he's at a different spot in his career too, and that's my biggest question with Trotz - will he be willing to be patient for a 2-3 seasons of not making the playoffs? As for Yzerman x Trotz, I can see Yzerman working with a strong coach - Tampa has proven that - and there is zero chance that Trotz will take Stevie's job.

                          Trotz reminds me of a more experienced Blashill. Defensive minded, payed his dues with teams that were awful. Trotz left eventually when he realized the Preds weren't going to get there and did it in Washington.

                          I don't know how much credit to put on the coaches developing the players, or the players just being good enough to survive. There has got to be some of each but hell if I know where to assign it. Did Blashill do poorly? Maybe. The Wings were able to score with their young talent, but the defense was a dumpster fire when Seider wasn't on the ice. Does Trotz fix that? Probably, but that's likely because Edvinsson becomes the next Seider - not because Trotz gets more out of 3rd line defensemen. It would fix itself next year with better D parings.

                          I will not be upset if they hire Trotz because I do believe he is a good coach.

                          Edit: Because I forgot he went to Washington to get his Cup and not with the Preds. Oof.
