    Default Should Leafs Hire Barry Trotz?

    Speculation on Twitter - will the Preds fire Trotz? Will the Leafs fire Carlyle?

    If so - would the Leafs be wise or stupid to hire Trotz?

    Besides the fact that the games will put you to sleep, that is...

    The Leafs should re-hire Burke and let him finish what he started. I know it ain't gonna happen.

    Trotz is what the Leafs need. At least he gets something from talent less rosters. Imagine what he could do with this team.

    My initial reaction was, hell yes, but Trotz's coaching record warrants further dissection. Does he lose points for never having won his own division even once? Certainly getting stuck in the same division as the Red Wings Dynasty for 14 years didn't help, nor did catching the start of the Blackhawks dynasty. Does he lose points he lose points for having won just two playoff series? Does he gain degree of difficulty for almost never having a superstar forward with the exception of when they had Paul Kariya or the six weeks when they acquired Peter Forsberg? Does he lose points now that we've figured out just how incredible that Ryan Suter-Shea Weber pairing really was? How do we reconcile the value of the goalie pipeline he has benefited from in Nashville or does he get some credit for that too?

    I still think he'd probably be an upgrade, I just don't know how much of a slam dunk he'd be. I think the Leafs still need to acquire better players.

    Too many ifs for this to happen.

    If the Preds fire Trotz, and if the Leafs fire Carlyle, and then if the Leafs want Trotz and if Trotz wants to coach again right away...

    Anyways, Toronto will probably end up with Peter Laviolette.

    If Trotz is fired, he won't be without a job for long...

    I think he'd be a good fit. Trotz has rarely had even 2 good scoring forwards and when he has his team has done well. It would be interesting to see what he could do on a team with 4 or 5 forwards with 60-90 point ability. They may not have a Weber type D but their top 4-5 are decent and they have good goaltending.

    Not enough is made about the Burke shafting. He made mistakes but did WAY more good than bad.
    He was basically fired for being too big for the MLSE brand. And today they hire Shanny who is also bigger than the MLSE brand.
    No offense to Shanahan... but he simply isn't qualified to run this ship.

    As for Trotz - yes please.
    He is exactly the kind of coach they need.
    My only concern would be a clashing with Kessel. Say what you will about the guy, we all know how gifted he is, but Carlyle and Wilson both let Phil do whatever he wants HOPING that he would eventually improve his overall game.

    Trotz will demand it.

    i think there will be major changes. two years of choking means something needs to happen. nonis is likely safe, which means it's either carlyle/phaneuf. the latter just got extended and would be way too bold of a move so it'll be carlyle. at least that's what i hope...obviously the leafs need to get better players but there needs to be some accountability and itll be carlyle who gets blamed for his coaching style considering the one thing people will remember this year is the leafs getting outshot every game.

    just my opinion, chances are nothing significant happens since it's the leafs. im hoping lieweke knows what he's doing...

    Altho trotz is rumored to leave Nashville, there is an option on his contract for 1 more year. So its not a done deal just yet.

    I personally think he will leave though.

    And if I had to take a guess, he wont sign in Leafland

    this is from me hearing personal stories lol. I'll leave it at that. He for sure will be gone after next season. But I have heard stories that it may be this off season.
