Barry Trotz on Devon Toews: "He was not intimidated if he was out there against top guys or anything. That shows me he has a lot of confidence in his ability. He was one of our better ones today.” #Isles

Isles played a really solid game last night. The only goal they let up I would describe as a weak goal instead of any break downs. Ho Sang drew at least 1 penalty. the PP got one and they really just played a great, responsible game. It's amazing that if the playoffs started today we are on the outside looking in (although, we have a game in hand on pens). It just shows you how your really need to get points in close games.

a fantastic win last night and great road trip. Looks like everyone knows their responsibilities. Love the way the d is playing. Devon Toews looked great in debut.
Ho Sang has provide the X factor to more offense and actually made the 2nd pp unit look better than the first.

Sbisa has played quite well filling in.
Trotz has got these guys committed to his systems.

It’s amazing how much your chances increase when you play...you know....defense. I wish I had known that, and pointed it out repeatedly over the last decade...oh, wait....I did....LOL.

Give a coach a decent goaltender, and he can teach monkeys to keep the puck out of their own net....and these guys are a lot better than monkeys. In fact, they’re a lot better than most people wanted to give them credit for, even sans 91. Trying to teach them how to win without playing defense was impossible....which is why they didn’t win.

As for the main question on the thread- if the defense becomes second nature over the next month or so, the offense will slowly start to return. I always thought the playoff question was one that would depend on the answer to, “how quickly can they master the coach’s system?” It looks like they’re really getting there, as of late. I truly believe that if they can get the GF up to around 3, over the second half, they’ll be in the dance, no question about it.

Imagine what the team could have done if we weren't cursed with Snow refusing to hire a decent coach.
