<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Lenny7</b></div><div>I'm a bit hesistant to hope for a Marty St. Louis type coach...the run and gun offence is fun to watch, but it'd just be another year of Gibby getting shelled. I'm still thinking the Trotz train is probably the best option, TBH...I think he does really well creating structure, which is something this team has been desperately missing since (shoot me for saying this...) Randy Carlyle. Carlyle obviously sucked all of the offence out of the team, but at least we'd see some semblance of defence (when they were healthy...). Trotz in NY (and Washington) did the best he could with what he was given. The unfortunate bi-product in Long Island was that it absolutely sapped the offence out of Barzal, but that team, even last year, played excellent team defence, which I think it's the foundation of what this team needs to build on.</div></div>

Yeah, with St. Louis type coach I meant how he works with young players, etc., not his coaching style for the whole team. While Trotz would be great as a HC, I'm not sure he's the best fit for the Ducks. Obviously team defense would likely be great but, as you said, he could have a negative impact on the offensive development of McTavish, Zegras, etc. But I agree that this team needs defensive first and I think especially Drysdale and Zellweger (hopefully next year) could really benefit from him as a coach, also considering they're smaller than others. Another coach that could work until at least the end of the season would be Seth Appert imo. Not sure I'd want him long-term, but I think he'd work well for the now.
