Lou Lamoriello Is In Charge

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,

The title at this point is unclear, but the authority granted to Lou Lamoriello by Islanders ownership is absolute. He and he alone will determine the fate of general manager Garth Snow. He and he alone will determine whether Doug Weight will get another crack at it behind the bench.

Lamoriello, whom we’re told on good authority received permission no later than the beginning of last week from the Maple Leafs to leave his do-nothing assignment as senior adviser in order to speak with owners Scott Malkin and Jon Ledecky, is the decider. All hockey department personnel decisions — as well as all player personnel decisions — will run through Lamoriello.

No one will be saved by a poison pill that might have been inserted in his contract by previous majority owner Charles Wang, who always seemed to have some sort of side game going when he was in control. Bet your bottom dollar there will be no side games run out of Lamoriello’s office.
