We need a bunch of good quality vets, at the least one for our top 6 forwards, and one for our top four defensemen. Changing the coach does nothing but unsettle the younger players.

Just for laughs, go take a look at one of the threads where some of you wanted to kick out our last legitimate NHL coach , http://hfboards.hockeysfuture.com/sh...d.php?t=498655. See the parallels between the two threads.
Make the team come out and play with fire from the get go, and get them to play 60 mins. If you take all the games they took 1-2 periods off, and the games they came out rediculiously flat and just cut them in half... we'd be in the playoffs. We wouldnt have won all of them, but we only need a few.

Absolutey not. Im shocked anyone would take Cappy over Weight too. I dont want Weight as the HC, but at least the guy has some emotion. When eh wa sont he ice the the players wanted to win cause he was a great captain, and he has potential to be a great coach just caus eof having a ton of experience and greta leadership and emotion. Capuano si absolutely te worst coach int he NHL and anything is an upgrade

i cant see how being a good player makes you a good coach. How do good hand-eye coordination, good legs, deft hands etc help when you are coaching. Not at all! As for emotion...some coaches are very quiet but can instill emotion in their players. Many coaches scream a lot, but get no respect from their kids. I think you are trying to somehow simplify the qualities of a good coach way too much.

First, learn how to type.

Second, the whole experience in the NHL argument is a load of crap. Scotty Bowman didn't play a game of professional hockey. Laviolette played a total of 12 minutes in the NHL. And they became great coaches. Wayne Gretzky is one of the greatest of all time and he turned into a horrible coach.

So people stop with the NHL experience argument.

As I posted in the now closed poll, I don't want Cappy back.

Why?

Well, first things first.

We don't know how he is in the locker room.

He (seems) too laid back.
He (seems) not to demand results.
He (seems) to expect too much from his players when it comes to game preparation.


So, I voted the bottom option.

I'll have him back if getting rid of him means Doug Weight takes the reins of the Isles.

I don't want Weight.
I don't want Cappy.

I want Caryle or Keenan.

Don't get me wrong, Cappy and/or Weight could turn out to be great coaches, but, their time isn't now, nor is it the time for the Isles to be giving either of them time to find their sea legs.

New coach, this is unacceptable. From playing terrible, terrible, terrible vets over deserving kids and ****ing Nino up the ass all year, to ten plus ****ing goals given on the first shot of the game, to embarassing collapes like this. We WERE still in a playoff race with all of that, erase all of that and maybe we WERE buyers this deadline.

After what happened tonight they need to do something to right this ship, starting with the coach but it can't end there.

Doesn't the average Islander coach only last about 2 seasons?

Let's hope this trend continues, Jack looks absolutely lost out there.

Not only was he awful coaching tonight's loss, he did not even seem remotely disappointed in his post game interview. We can't accept losing, this is ridiculous.

The last NYI head coach to complete a 3rd consecutive season with the club as head coach was Al Arbour.

Gordon was the only other one to even make it to a 3rd year.

Thanks for that info, I didn't feel like going back to 80's to see which coach went into a 3rd season.

I honestly think that a new head coach with a lot of experience at the "NHL" level, can be the difference in making this a playoff team.

Hopefully, that new coach will hire his own assistants and not inherit them from previous staffs.

FYI http://www.hockey-reference.com/teams/NYI/

For individual player stats & draft history hockeydb.com or tsn is much better. But for a quick overview of the franchises W/L year to year, coaches etc. that's the place to go. There's also baseball-reference (which is brilliant with the amount of splits they have), Football & basketball reference. It's a good site.

As for the assistants. the PK & PP has been better this year then it's been in a very very long time. I believe they're in the top 10 in both categories. I can't remember the last time that happened. I don't think the problem is the assistants. Though ideally you'd like the new coach to hire his own people.

looking at that list, if the NYI fired Laviolette for failing to get out of the 1st round 2 consecutive years, plus other reasons. Shouldn't they fire Capuano for not making the playoffs in 2 consecutive years. Come on SnoWang, surprise us & do the right thing this summer. Get these players an NHL veteran head coach. If you won't spend on players, then at least spend on the coach.

Guarantee you this group could have gotten at least an 8 seed in the playoffs with an experienced, hard nosed coach this season.

I've been saying it to my Islander friends and family all season long, Capuano is the biggest problem here.
