Sweet tweet here from TEAM 1040 Canucks reporter Jeff Paterson (Vancouver hosts Nashville tonight at Rogers Arena):

Trotz Tweet


The Predators should play the Canucks more often. The last time they met -- a 5-1 win for Vancouver -- Trotz said defenseman Mattias Ekholm was “horrible, absolutely horrible” and dropped this beauty:

“We’ve got some young players that are maybe playing a little higher than they need to, but we’ve got to battle through it. They have to learn. You’re in the league. You have to line up against the best in the league.

“If you’re scared of that, get a dog. This is the NHL, boys.”
