I don't understand why he has gotten such a bad reputation. He did a lot for the Rangers, and IMO he got scapegoated when Sather was unable to put together a good team a few years back. He was a big reason for the development of guys like Callahan and Dubinsky, he's proven he can develop youngsters.

At the very least, he would be better then Capuano (but then again, I think almost anyone would be better then him)
I agree with this. I don't really think he's ever had a good team. Not that he'd be getting a good team in the Islanders, but he's got a confidence that Capuano doesn't have, and that's why he won't get hired. If you have an opinion, Chaz don't like it.

In Vancouver, he had the "ego team" that included Pavel Bure, Alexander Mogilny, and Mark Messier. Players who were Krazy Glued together. Same thing happened with the Rangers. Then he got a bunch of high schoolers in Edmonton.

I'd roll the dice on him, but Chaz wouldn't like the potential push back.
