    With so limited international achievements it's difficult to declare anyone the best in the world, the best in the league sure.

    Washington didn't give him as much freedom. The Islanders are letting him do whatever he wants and to be honest, it's totally showing that it works.

    You could argue Cooper is better, but I think Trotz is the best with enough of a gap that it’s not that close.

    Winning the Cup won't change whether or not he is the best coach (personally, I think he is).

    The correct question would be: will he get more recognition if his team wins the Cup?

    I think he will be coach of the year, if they win. With the NHL being the best league in the world l, I guess technically he would be the best in the world untill someone else is coach of the year. In fact, he might be the best even if he doesn't win the Cup.

    It's surprisingly easy to coach when you have Stamkos/Kucherov/Point/Hedman/Vasilevskiy on your team.

    I think there are a lot around the league that already view Trotz as the best coach. He gets his props by everyone. He’s certainly not disrespected or an afterthought.

    In the world? No, he isn't. In the NHL? He's one of the best, that's for sure.

    He's clearly the best coach in hockey right now

    I take solace in the fact that this was started by a jets fan

    most isles fans havent counted our chickens yet, trust me. Hard to be arrogant when you are heading into a round vs a team you lost to last year (which is now healthier, although admittedly our roster's makeup is different as well - Palmieri is just beasting atm)

    How about how Washington has performed, or more accurately underperformed, in the three years post-Trotz? Had they made another SC run in the past three years (with basically the same cast of characters) you could possibly say Trotz wasn't maybe as big a factor. But they've been out in the first round with two different coaches three years running after Barry was let go.

    Id argue the caps are performing slightly worse then they always do after trotz left. Win or almost win their division each year and bow out in the first round. They hadn't made a Stanley cup run the 3 years before they won with trotz either. Another factor is the team is older and younger teams (car, nyi) are getting better. Imo trotz doesn't make that much of a difference

    I think we’re more looking at his place in history already.

    I'm biased but in my opinion keeping Nashville afloat and consistently in the playoffs was arguably as difficult as anything else he's accomplished. Trotz will always be welcome here.
