from the Sault Star,
He didn’t come out and say the words. But Ted Nolan didn’t have to.
His looks and body language said all you needed to know: Nolan’s future as head coach of the New York Islanders is far from certain. Having completed Season 2 of the three-year contract he signed in 2006, the 50-year-old native of Garden River will apparently enter the 2008-2009 NHL season as a lame duck bench boss.
“It’s a tough situation,” Nolan said Thursday, prior to serving as a guest speaker at the National Aboriginal Hockey Championships awards banquet at Steelback Centre. “But I’ve faced a lot of tough situations before. I just want to go into next season, concentrate on fulfilling my contract, do a great job and make sure I get another contract somewhere.”
