After 15 seasons as the head coach of the Nashville Predators, Barry Trotz is stepping down. He is the only head coach in the history of the franchise.
So the search begins on who will take over and as always, we at BJOTG have got you covered on who should be some of the top candidates for the job. You will read and hear who they should look at and go after but we will tell you different names that should be considered. Hockey experience or not.
He has plenty of time on his hands and he is kinda weird and so are most coaches, so it would be perfect. Plus, he knows his way around town which means nothing.
THAT MIDGET FROM GAMES OF THRONES
For one reason only. To see him coach a game, while sitting on the backup goalie’s shoulders. Oh Lord, I would pay top dollar for that and by top dollar, 5 bucks.
The longtime Nashville radio veteran and sports writer knows everything, just ask him, he will tell you, so why not hire him if you are the Preds? Remember, he knows it all.
Polarizing. Demonstrative. Will piss off other fan bases and then leave for his dream job, which will be Columbus. Yeh, maybe not him.
His career is winding down, spent 99% of it here in Nashville and he knows the players, knows this city, knows the writers and if need be, in a pinch, can get out there on the ice and spin around and around and around and around and around. I really like this one.
For one reason only and that is when the team goes scoreless for 5 games in a row, at the press conference she says, “It’s official. We can’t score goals. And I can’t have children.”
FAKE SIGN LANGUAGE GUY
Follow me on this. Teams love to steal other teams signs and with this guy behind the bench, even his own team will have no clue what he is signing and other teams will give up after a period. I am liking this one a lot plus if he can get into a state
funeral with no credentials, pretty sure he can get the Preds in the playoffs the same way.
Other team gets so distracted by him and then they wait patiently for what is on his belly and he unveils during a power play, other team loses focus, Preds score, boom! I am liking this one too, until Big Ben decides to lose weight and there goes our secret weapon.
