Trotts, glad to be wrong about this #91 based on the pre-draft concerns. This guy is far from the Brad Boyes player some people thought he might become - kind of ironic in a sad way

Despite the woes of the past 20 years, there are now a handful of players on this Isles' team that would do your namesake proud.
That handful is the reason the Isles have made the playoffs and won two games against the best team in the East.

Let's grab two more wins on the weekend and keep it going!
