NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Predators coach Barry Trotz never wants to leave. Neither does general manager David Poile, who said he has a "comfortable" working relationship with his coach.

Their relationship certainly is productive.

The only men to hold these jobs with Nashville have survived the growing pains of building an expansion franchise and have put the Predators in their strongest position yet to chase their first Stanley Cup.

Poile is a finalist for the NHL's general manager of the year for a third straight season, while Trotz has been a Jack Adams award finalist the past two seasons.

The Predators ousted Detroit in five games as the first team to advance this postseason. They will play Phoenix in the second round of the Western Conference.
