Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Greg Logan of Newsday,
If there’s a poster boy for the Islanders’ regime change this season, it’s forward Jeff Tambellini, whose performance (or lack thereof) was at the root of the split between general manager Garth Snow and former coach Ted Nolan. Tambellini tied for second in the AHL with 38 goals in 57 games at Bridgeport but managed only one goal in 31 appearances with the Isles.
It’s not that Snow considers Tambellini a surefire NHL sniper. It’s that Nolan’s refusal to give Tambellini prime minutes and power-play time never allowed the organization to find out what kind of player he can be at the NHL level.
