I must say I have not been a fan of the Barry Trotz we have known for the last Three or Four seasons. But I must admit, that now I have a hard time seeing that same old Barry in this team. I see Defensemen playing below the face off circle in the attacking zone. I saw a young third year player, centering the top line. I see a second year winger coming into his stride and not being scratched or moved to the fourth line when he makes a few mistakes. I see a team which still plays hard on defense but looks to counter and attack. I see a PK that's near the top of the league. I see a different style with this team.
So where's Barry?
Did he finalize realize that his style wasn't working? Did the plague of injuries cause him to see things in a different light? Did the New Ownership give him an ultimatum? Well, I don't know and I don't care. I hope the Old Barry doesn't come back, I like the new look.
