NHL network's top 20 d-men currently playing in NHL is the dumbest thing I have seen in a long time. They have bot Krug and Charlie MacAvoy on there and no Duncan Keith. They have Gostisbehere and Dougie Hamilton on there but no Gio, Ekblad, and Webber. Gostisbehere is not even best D-man on his team (Provorov).

At least Trotz will have him play defense instead of him trying to be the 4th forward.

Not sure if he was trying to be the fourth forward? Not really sure what he was doing most of the time and I’m fairly certain he didn’t either but I do know he makes everyone better. I mean look at Pulock.

I don't hate him like you do. I think he's a 7th defenseman and may be okay under Trotz. His contract sucks.

He is a seventh defenseman and if he’s played as such then great but to many “7th defenseman” have been top fours hope to see that change under Trotz. Problem is the other options we have unless we have a rotating bottom pair? I have no faith in either but it would be nice to see one of mayfield or Pelech take a leap forward. Saw a glimpse of it with mayfield then he regressed.
Hickey is fine as an injury replacement that’s it anything more than he’s being misused.

I actually thought he would be a very solid 3rd/4th line forward. His few shifts at wing were very good. He is used to battling in corners, blocking shots, etc. I think he would be a better option at forward than some of our other "depth signings". Defense... not so much.

Contract is a joke.

I am expecting better personnel decisions under Lou and Trotz. Hopefully they will properly assess the team's talent and play them accordingly.

Hickey and Pulock will be the second pair, if the team stays the same, imho. Both played very well together in the last half of the season. ( Que Cpt and the Hickey haters, I’m ready )

Team defense will be 100% different under Trotz. Forwards and Defenseman will be defensively aware and held responsible if they aren’t. Pretty excited to see the team pushed to play a defense first structure. If they can keep the puck out of their own zone/net I think they have enough talent to score and may be a pleasant surprise.

That said I wish the season started already!

I'm not a Hickey hater, but he's a 3rd line d-man at best. I don't discount the possibility that he could be okay in a real system. I think it's unlikely he will live up to his contract no matter who coaches him.

His advanced stats were good. Better than most dman on the team. Also 2.5 per is a hell of a lot better than 6 for Boychucks play the last 2 years and even Leddy last year at 5 mil. They were horrid. That said, most of the team were.
We will just have to wait for the season to start to see who plays with who and how the team plays under Trotz. I think we will be pleasantly surprise, I hope.

I don't discount the possibility that any of these players could be better in a real system. How many times have you guys heard me say 'I want to see what this team could do with a real coach?' It's just a simple fact that with the coaches and culture of the past that potential may not have been achieved by a lot of these guys. They were allowed to just skate (sorry for the pun) by with no repercussions or accountability. Unless you were a young player. Then you sat because a vet screwed up.

Having Barry as a coach is such a huge plus. Barry is a proven winner the players have to respect him. A real system will be put in place and the players better follow it.
