Barry Trotz Fired


Recommended Posts

This was one of the more shocking bits of news in recent history.  I can't help but think that maybe there was something going on that we are not aware of.  The Islanders were a team that was floundering, lacking identity.  Trotz came in and basically took the same team that achieved little under Weight/Capuano, lost their best player in Tavares and all he did was make the playoffs 3x, including two trips to the Conference Finals.

One disappointing season and he is fired.  Does not make sense.

Came as a total shock, and curious the internal reasoning for the move.  Apparently the rest of the staff is still under contract for a year, and the new coach (curious who that will be) will make decisions on whom to keep.  Curious if they will go with a coach with a more open, up-tempo system - I would have to think yes, else why get rid of Trotz?
