Barry Trotz finally got the axe

Life in the NHL won’t be the same without Barry Trotz coaching the Nashville Predators. He has been at the helm since that franchise’s very first game.Against all odds he lasted 15 seasons, generally keeping Predators competitive despite the lack of high-end scorers. Over the years Nashville has landed elite goaltending (Pekka Rinne) and top defensemen (Shea Weber, Ryan Suter...

Wait WTF Just Happened

Took me a couple hours to digest what just happened. I knew that something was going to happen in the front office this offseason. I had a feeling, but hoped it would not be this. Before I really get going here I want to thank Barry Trotz for fifteen seasons and 557 wins and 1196 games coached for the Predators. Today the Predators are saying goodbye tot he only coach we've...

Darren Helm was bumped up to the Detroit Red Wings’ top line on Saturday night, with a struggling David Legwand demoted. And Helm added another notch to Mike Babcock’s Coach of the Year candidacy by netting his first career hat trick in a huge 4-2 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs. Helm’s first goal came shorthanded in the second period, with the Wings down 1-0. After Jonathan...

Honeymoon over? Legwand dropped to third line in Detroit

David Legwand‘s first nine games in a Detroit uniform were pretty good — he scored two goals and five assists, and was getting top-line minutes at center. The last three games? Not so good. Legwand is pointless with an ugly minus-6 rating, and Detroit has lost all three while managing to secure just one of a possible six points. For a team in the thick of a playoff chase, that’s...

Jarnkrok already turning heads in brief time with Predators

Nashville Predators coach Barry Trotz's initial impression of Calle Jarnkrok is a positive one. In two games, Jarnkrok, the center whom the Predators received at the trade deadline in exchange for David Legwand, previously their longest-tenured player, has a point each time (two assists total). For the Predators' offensively challenged corps of forwards, that amounts to a...

Detroit Red Wings Continue On Their Roll, Win 3-2 Over Wild

  The Detroit Red Wings continue on their late-season tear, taking another big 2 points from the Minnesota Wild 3-2 in the first of a home-and-home. The first period was a very well-played defensive battle for the Red Wings. They stuck with the man-to-man coverage on the Wild and managed to limit the number of chances in their own zone. Minnesota would manage to strike first on...

Getting Speared In The Nuts Doesn’t Look Like Fun, Just Ask Evgeni Malkin

  Despite scoring two goals, Evgeni Malkin’s night against the Red Wings had a rough ending on Thursday. Not only did the Penguins fall to Detroit in an overtime nailbiter, Malkin was also butt-ended right in the groin by David Legwand after getting tied up with Legwand near the Wings’ net towards the end of regulation. Legwand was ejected from the game as a result of the dirty...

David Legwand Spears Evgeni Malkin In Groin, Gets Ejected (GIF)

Detroit Red Wings center David Legwand was ejected from Thursday’s game against the Pittsburgh Penguins after he speared Evgeni Malkin in the groin. Legwand matched up with Malkin for almost every shift, but the Pens sniper scored twice, which probably ticked off the 33-year-old Wings vet a little. The game was tied 4-4 at 16:14 in the third period when Legwand ended a battle...

Malkin knocked Legwand’s helmet off as the two engaged near the net, and Legwand responded by delivering a butt-end spear into Malkin’s midsection. Malkin sold it fully in front of the ref, who handed Legwand a five-minute match...

David Legwand’s butt-end on Evgeni Malkin has no place in the game

I would love to keep things positive after the Red Wings' 5-4 OT win over the Pittsburgh Penguins, but this play by David Legwand has to be at least reviewed by the league, despite Legwand getting a 5-minute major for butt-ending and Evgeni Malkin being okay. It's a gutless, cheap-ass butt-end, and it has no place in the game.
