Can Gordon Succeed With The Islanders

from Jim Kelley at Sports Illustrated,

It’s possible it could all work out for Gordon. Owner Charles Wang might suddenly develop some patience and Snow might forge a relationship that would allow Gordon to grow as a coach while Snow grows as a general manager….

But at the end of the day, (Scott) Gordon signed on to coach a poor hockey team that struggles to attract talent from the ownership office on down. Want proof? Just dig up that picture of just two seasons ago when Wang was surrounded by Nolan, Milbury, former GM Neil Smith and advisors like Pat LaFontaine and ask where they—and the Islanders—are now. In less time than you can say “what the heck”, only Wang remains and the Stanley Cup is not in that picture.
