And did the Islanders not bring in Witt, Sillinger, and Poti for Nolan? Renney took a team with a bad blueline and one line offense and got them into the playoffs. How? By employing a tight trap that demanded commitment from its role players and letting Jagr call his own game. By backing him up with three checking lines (along with the play of Henrik), he was able to shelter a not so good blueline and roll into the playoffs.

A bad coach doesn't get that team into the playoffs. Because its basically a mirror image of Tavares and his merrybend of folk but we have a better blueline.
