Can You See Lou Lamoriello Taking Over The New York Islanders?

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,

What Would Lou Lamoriello Do if the Maple Leafs believe it’s time to move one of hockey’s legendary executives out of the general manager’s chair onto a comfy adviser’s couch in order to slide either Kyle Dubas or Mark Hunter in the lead role?

Would Lamoriello willingly recede into the background for the first time in his career — first time in his adult life, really — and smell the roses while basking in the affection of his adored grandchildren?

Or would he seek to conquer a new frontier by taking over the operation on Long Island in order to rescue the shipwrecked franchise and restore it to its long-ago historical greatness?

I wouldn’t bet so much as toonie against it.
