Islanders getting ready to fire their coach?

There is talk circulating through the network of hockey personnel people that Scott Gordon ‘s job behind the Islanders’ bench is in serious jeopardy.

Can’t for the life of us understand why the coach hasn’t been able to squeeze more out of his $1.29 payroll, and by the way, for how long exactly is Charles Wang going to use The Lighthouse as an excuse to hold his franchise hostage?

There is an arena waiting for him in Queens the moment he wants it, an arena and short move that would immediately revitalize the franchise.

The minute you hear Wang say Queens isn’t Long Island is the minute you’re hearing Walter O’Malley say Queens isn’t Brooklyn.

    I think the Isles have proven time after time, that changing coaches isn't always the answer. He is a respected coach among peers which says something.

    Islanders have won too many games puts Garth's tanking plans in jeopardy.

    At least Garth Snow made a bold contract offer to Kovalchuk of $100 mil/10 years. Good for him to try to improve his squad.

    I think Long Island has become a spot that UFA's just don't even consider so they'll have to keep building from within. A few bright spots like Comeau, Wisniewski, Moulson. If they had Okposo and Streit healthy they would be in better shape for sure.

    Overall I'm happy there are organizations like Florida and NYI, this gives the Leafs a legit shot to finish 13th or higher.
