Nolan Expected Back As Islanders Coach

from Greg Logan of Newsday,

Neither Wang nor Snow was happy with Nolan when he expressed some concern near the end of the season about going into the final year of his three-year contract without an extension. But when Snow was asked if there’s any reason to believe Nolan won’t return, he said, “I don’t see any reason. He’s our coach.”

Snow said he expects to sit down with Nolan within the next week to discuss the past season and what lies ahead. Snow blamed the Islanders’ failure to make the playoffs on “a handful of players who didn’t play to their capabilities” and the fact they led the NHL in man-games lost to injuries.
