Barry Trotz is one of the most popular coaches throughout the NHL, and it's not for a random reason, Trotz has been coaching for 36 years in total throughout the MJHL, AHL and NHL. Trotz has proven to be a successful coach

Big breaking story out of Nashville: after 26 years as the Predators' architect the most consistent presence in franchise history David Poile is retiring from President of Hockey Operations & GM position, effective June 30. Expectation is he will remain in a consulting role.

This season, he became the first GM in league history with 3,000 games as a manager, in Washington before Nashville. Incredible career, especially in building Tennessee hockey from a curiosity to an important NHL franchise.

Barry Trotz is believed to be Poile's successor. Starting work immediatelyalthough not officially the GM until June 30



Nashville Predators fans should surely be happy about this, although Poile's departure may leave some emotional, Trotz's arrival as general manager for the first time in his career should make a huge impact.
