GM says coach change 'wake-up call' for Predators

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - General manager David Poile hopes he sent the strongest message possible by making the first coaching change in Nashville's history: missing the playoffs is not acceptable for the Predators.

Poile announced Monday that Barry Trotz, the NHL's longest tenured head coach with one team, would not be back for a 16th season after the Predators missed the postseason for a second straight year. A few hours later, Poile said at a news conference a few hours later that won't get it done.

"This is a wakeup call for everybody in our organization," Poile said. "It's a wakeup call for me. `Get out of your comfort zone.' It's going to be different here. There's going to be a new coach in charge. ... It's going to be a difference voice and it's going to be a different direction. And hopefully ... the foundation Barry's presented here for the next coach will take us to a higher level."
