Doug Weight In Charge

from Allan Kreda of the New York Times,

“Here we go,” he said while approaching the waiting throng of television cameras and reporters.

The pressure is instantly on Weight, 45, a Stanley Cup winner with Carolina in 2006 who started his career with the Rangers and finished it with the Islanders in 2011. Since then, Weight had been an assistant under Capuano, who led the team to the playoffs in three of the past four seasons.

But with the squad enduring an inconsistent first half, squandering leads and losing games late, General Manager Garth Snow made the coaching switch, putting Weight in charge on an interim basis.

“When it comes down to it, we have to play better,” said Weight, a native of Warren, Mich., who served as the captain of the Islanders and the Edmonton Oilers during his 19-year playing career. “I’ll just be standing a little more to the right on the bench. Guys have to play better, and I’m going to let them know when they’re not.”
