Not sure how you spend money Doofus but yes when you spend $39 million in 2005 on a hockey team, playoffs are expected.

Not sure if TR would take an asst. job with the isles, but if he did, I think that would bring some good value to the Isles staff.

He brings a fair amount of positive background. What is equally good is if things go bad to open the season, he is a ready made replacement with cache.

I would like to see a different coach behind the bench to be sure. A cup winner would be optimal. But someone who can be more experienced in a positive atmosphere would be great. I do not want to see Brent Thompson brought here right now. he is doing great in BP leave him there for now.

Ideally if I give it a "go" with Renney I would love to see he and Trottier as the assistants. I know, I know.... lots of people feel Trots can't coach but he did VERY WELL as an asst. with the Lanch and Pens. Together with Renney I think there is some winning behind the team... even if we keep Cappy as Head Coach.... and Weight is there too....

Just like Edmonton did this year... oh yeah dead last. Do we really need to get the coach of the worst team in the NHL? Cappy has much less to work with and got more out of his team. Capauno is terrible but can you guys give him an ounce of credit? Tom Renney...Rick Bowness coached the Sens to dead last before we brought him on, it worked wonders.

Capuano is part of the Wang philosophy-

Ok, you win, handsome. Jack Capuano is a much better coach for this team than Renney would be.

And for the record:

Tavares at 21
Moulson at 27
and
Parenteau at 31

Are older than both of my parents.

Eberle at 22
Hall at 20
and
Nugent-Hopkins at 19

Are substantially younger than my parents.

Renney has been known to be excellent with young players and their development. he would be an excellent assistant to Cappy. Unfortunately, we know that when something makes sense it wont be happening on the Island. I have a better chance at getting a call than does Renney (I would be cheaper to sign). **** Wang. **** Snow.

Your right, what was I thinking. And Edmonton wasn't dead last Colombus was (atleast I think they are still in the NHL). So yes give Renney the job already, what is Garth waiting for?

Wait. Are people really trying to say Renney wouldn't be an improvement over Capuano?

Holy ****. This place never ceases to amaze me, and not in a good way.

Apparently not so much people, just me. 5 less points and being out of it by January would be a vast improvement, if your trying to get the 1st overall pick.

That team was a complete and total fluke which was carried mainly by Jagr's play, without him they'd have won 25 games.

Yep, Capuano is just so much better. I just can't dispute that.

Let me know when Capuano actually gets an NHL team into the playoffs, coaches a national team to a medal, or even wins a Memorial Cup.

Or better yet, finishes with a .500 record.

Way to put words in my mouth guy. All I'm asking is to aim higher than the Renneys and Cappys of the League. Way to change a turd out for another turd. What was Renney's record with Edmonton again?

I think the plan in Edmonton all along was that Renney would be coach to develop the younger players and when they were ready to make the next step, a coach good at doing that would be brought in. We could use a coach like that right now. But we don't make smart hockey moves. **** Wang. **** Snow.

I keep forgetting that the Islanders are not allowed to have an actual NHL coach.

Ah yes cause money spent is equivalent to talent on ice. But continue to say Renney is a bad coach, if you believe hard enough it may just come true!

Islanders had three starting blueliners better than anyone on the Oilers.

Just to give you folks some insight, Edmonton was 19th in goals for and 23rd in goals against. We were 28th in goals for and were 27th in goals against. It was goaltending that made the difference in the standings. Were actually worse than the Oilers
