Well, Simmons says that Hunter might be going to Detroit so who could possibly be the next GM of the Isles?

Also, I wonder which better-than-Blashill coach they’re going to end up with.

Many media types on Twitter stating Snow has 4 years left on his contract.

Dan Rosen tweet,

Sheldon Keefe, Barry Trotz (if available???), Scott Stevens, John Madden, D.J. Smith, Alain Vigneault. Rick Bowness. All possible candidates to be the Islanders new coach or at least on the coaching staff. I fully expect Jacques Lemaire to join the Islanders in some capacity too.

I’m surprised, because of Lou’s age, that he’d take on the GM responsibilities.  But I’m NOT surprised, because he’s Lou. 

I halfway wouldn’t be surprised if he announces himself as the coach, too.

Glorious day on Long Island!


In LOU we trust. 

Now we have a fighting chance to get back into the mainstream and compete. 

I hope he gets us an experienced head coach this time around and makes all the right moves on draft day and UFA.

Whether JT stays or not - I feel much better.  I am going to have to buy some ticket plan now as a result.
