    A coward would have started Holtby.

    Coward might be up 1-0 in the series instead of losing the home ice in G1.

    Agreed.

    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.
