Bruins' Chiarelli built winner using Red Wings' model

Monday, 04.14.2014 / 2:43 PM / Bruins vs Red Wings - 2014 SCP First Round

Matt Kalman - NHL.com Correspondent

BOSTON -- Long before Peter Chiarelli took over as general manager of the Boston Bruins, he admired the way the Detroit Red Wings went about their business.

Chiarelli, who started in his current role prior to the 2006-07 season, even tried to steal a little of the Red Wings' secret formula when he made Dave Lewis, a longtime assistant and former head coach in Detroit, the coach of the Bruins for that initial season in Boston.

Lewis' one-season tenure didn't get the Bruins headed in the direction Chiarelli wanted, so he opted to replace Lewis with Claude Julien. While the Bruins, having qualified for the Stanley Cup Playoffs in seven straight seasons, have a long way to go to match the Red Wings' 23-year run, Chiarelli has accomplished his goal of making the Bruins a franchise that's as admired around the NHL as Detroit.

Chiarelli quickly learned there was no shortcut to building an organization on par with the Red Wings, and there are several areas a team has to strengthen in order to be in Detroit's class.

As Predators coach, Trotz was Nashville institution

Monday, 04.14.2014 / 1:53 PM / NHL Insider

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

The Nashville Predators literally might not be the Nashville Predators without Barry Trotz.

Trotz helped pick the team name. He also helped pick the carpeting in the team's office. He was hired on Aug. 6, 1997, exactly 14 months and four days before the Predators played their first game. He has coached every game the team has played in its 15 seasons, winning 557 of them. He is a Nashville hockey institution.

At least he was.

Trotz's tenure in Nashville came to an end Monday, when the Predators announced his contract will not be extended and the team will immediately begin a search for a new coach for the first time in franchise history. Trotz has been offered a position in the organization's hockey operations department, but according to the Predators' press release he is still considering his options before making a decision.
