After the shockwave hit? No.
Yes. That's exactly what happened. The shockwave sent the saucer flying towards Veridian III and knocked the helm offline, so there was nothing Troi or anyone else could have done.
Troi had quite a few seconds between the separation and the explosion. Helm control was fully operational then as witnessed by the scene where the saucer is turning away from the drive section. The only way that explosion could knock them into Veridian III is if she deliberately positioned them between the drive and the planet. Space is three dimensional, she could have gone any number of other ways and the shock wave would've only pushed them further away from the planet.
Nah, that's just trying real hard to blame Troi for something that couldn't have been stopped by anyone.
