Better to win with a crappy roster than lose with a good roster.

So handing PJ Boy a $77 million contract wasn't a great way to unite the locker room?

Man, if Babcock starts talking with a Massachusetts accent about battle level and playing a heavy game that'd be the funniest damn thing ever.
The Isles are playing a hell of game right now. Defense is really looking solid. Good positioning, good puck control and mostly keeping the opponents to the outside. Great game planning by Trotz as well. Every game he's got a different plan. And it's working. Who would have ever thought that bringing in a real coach would make a difference.

Everyone except Garth Snow. However I didn't think it would make THIS much of a difference.

Outscored opponents 16 3 in last 5 and kept last 3 teams to under 20 shots. This team gave up 50+ many times last year its crazy. Everyone says the isles will go back to crap but hard to see it with the style they play and they are just all over teams in the o zone, even nelson is flying around out there

And the way Trotz game plans is incredible. A different look for each team. There's always something he's trying to take away from the opponent. Something specific. And he's usually been successful with it. The way the team looks now (positioning, etc.) is 180 degrees from 4 months ago. You can see that everyone has bought in. Everyone is playing where they're supposed to be playing. There's a nitpick that can be made here or there of course, but they are playing a very solid all-around game right now.

Amazing the difference that's made when a coach is prepared and makes adjustments on the fly.
Snow was so egotistical that it was unfathomable that it would make any difference. He was the smartest guy in the room and he was going to surround himself with idiots to ensure it. Ego was Snow's downfall, imho. Just look at the Halak situation. He didn't bring him back up because of ego. Snow cost the team (I think more than likely) a playoff spot because of ego.

And to think it took 20 to 30 games for the players to be comfortable in the system

It's all about accountability. Everyone is playing well because they have to. If they want to stay in the lineup you have to do what Trotz wants you to do. They know Hickey and Ladd will be back at some point. If they play like crap they could find themselves sitting the next game. With the last 2 coaches it wasn't like that. Hell even Pelech has looked terrific the last 6 games or so. You want to play, play to your potential and play your role for the team. This is 75% the same roster as last year and look at the difference. Trotz and his staff have been great. Just keep it going. There is a lot of season left.

One of my fairer deals. I'm pretty sure he is clean. I'm mean his past. He always looks unkempt

I've ragged on him enough, so it's only fair to point out that he hasn't looked bad at all starting with that game (maybe TB?) where he timed a dive forward perfectly to break up a cross-ice pass in his own zone. I think his biggest issue has been making a good defensive play and then immediately turning the puck back over, but he's done a lot less of that in the past few games.
