Of course he knew. He handled the whole thing so poorly. He ruined his legacy when he didn’t have to.

Just seems this with the plan all along and anything less than another Isles dynasty he was gone.

Garth and Co sure made it easy for JT to leave, but this still seemed to be the plan.

I hope someone dumps beer on him, might be the first of his life. Now would be a great time to post him sitting like a douche with a beer while the other boys shot gunned theirs

So I watched a bit of the encore version of the Devils broadcast of the game last night. Kenny Daneyko was very impressed with the Isles defensive play this season. He talked about how last year there were "gaping holes" on defense.

They've been really good at weathering the storm in the first, frustrating teams through the second, and then taking control in the third. I wish they'd come out a little stronger in the first so they're not stuck in their own zone as much...they were a bit lucky to come out of the first tied with Pitt in the first game and ahead of the Devils last night...but it's such a big difference how much more comfortable they look even when they are hemmed in for a couple of shifts.

They gotta find a way to get Beau going...or at least not getting in Barzal's way when he's not going. We know he can bring it when he's on, but 1 point in 12 games isn't going to cut it on the line they're counting on for offense.

Beau spent most of that 13 games on the 3rd line, while Ladd played with Barzal's line. But I agree that Beau is off to a slow start regardless of which line he is on.

Malkin and pens talked about how they play big in d zone and are physical, trotz had this team firing on all cylinders right now. They can score and now you play d and look what you get. Trotz is the best signing this team has had in years

Funny, isn't it, how defense is the key to winning in ALL sports? Amazing to me that the previous few coaches never seemed to understand that simple concept.

Yeah but the personnel is the personnel. Trotz can only do so much with these Shat signing, stupid trades and Monkey Stool D Men on the team.

Good thing they actually play the games. I mean we would be in last place in the Metro right now if they didn’t.

Im actually excited right now cant wait till the next game but they need to keep it up. I think Trotz will work on keeping high danger shots down and ive noticed barzal in particular playing much better in his own end. They are all buying in and the more they win the more they believe and the more they will do the little things

Nelson’s been tremendous. But he will be gone by the trade deadline along with Ebs and Lee.

We all know his history but right now hes playing great maybe he needed the right coach. I really like eberle hes shifty and plays great with barzal his contract will be the issue and we have two guys that are top 6 and one a top three really in the system. Cant move him if they are in it at deadline though

Edit, at least snow isnt in charge of this. I wonder what he does these days
