Nashville Needs To Win

from the Tennessean,

Coach Barry Trotz and his assistants have guided the team to 38, 49 and 51 regular-season victories, respectively, the past three seasons. But Predators General Manager David Poile has not exercised the option year on the coaching staff’s contracts and has said he won’t discuss new deals until the season is over.
That would seem to indicate playoff performance will weigh heavily on the staff’s future. Nashville has reached the playoffs in each of the past two seasons, losing in the first round as an eighth seed in 2004 and as a fourth seed last year.
“If the organization is happy, it won’t be a problem. If they’re not, they’ll move in a different direction.’‘
The series against the Sharks would appear to be as pivotal a time as any in the history of the Predators: so much reward for victory, so much concern with a loss.
