Whatever that means.
A coward would have started Holtby.
Need to rollback the time machine and grab Gallant.
Coward might be up 1-0 in the series instead of losing the home ice in G1.
I don't think Backstrom being fine is good enough though. With the depth that they have, he needs to be great for this team to get anywhere.
Also reason #64 why Reirden as the next coach is a bad idea.
He should have started Holtby.
Not necessarily. If he's being pressured to start Grubauer by outside influences or coaches/players then he could've caved and gone with Gruby.
Maybe "coward" is harsh. Conservative certainly fits 80+% of the time.
Trotz is setting himself up for a boom or bust situation with the goalie tandem. Starting Gruby appears to be a bold move but the second guessing opportunities are endless unless he wins.
