When you constantly make bad coaching decisions, it's hard for the team to believe in what you're preaching. Taking a timeout in the first period wasn't the reason they lost, but it certainly didn't help them any; it was wasted.

He pretty much just tried to bury that Carolina team as early as possible because he doesn't trust in the team to be able to produce later on in the game and play a full 60 minutes. He wasted the timeout and keeps sending the message to the rest of the team that JT's line is the only one he believes in, right or wrong. That's just bad coaching.

The only reason Capuano is coaching this team is due to his low salary!! The sooner he is fired, the sooner we can have some faith that the organization has some committment to win. Until then, it will be the usual B.S. about how close the Islanders are and about their compete level and more useless propaganda. Capuano is not the sole reason the Islanders are a non playoff team, but he doesn't help the cause in any way, shape or form and I guarantee that when he (if) gets fired he will not be coaching another team in the NHL ever again!!

He will not be fired because Wang does not want Snow to face heat for having a coaching carousel. So far, you have Nolan, Gordon, Capuano. If he gets fired in season the interim "counts" as a coach, especially if they change the coach for the next season - we all know that will not happen. Thompson or Weight will take over as the lowest cost option under the guise of "grooming" from within.

To add to that, if the internal culture has been exposed to nothing more than losing, how does that fare when the "losing" coach now takes over the NHL squad? You got
It...More losing. (weights cup in CAR does not count as he was a player).

Just watched the Cappy post game and you can tell the guy is losing his cool. Every chance he gets, he reminds the media he is coaching a crappy team even though it is subtle. You hear him say things like "That is how we have to play with the team we have" and "Guys are trying to be individualistic and we can't win like that with our team" and it happens almost every interview now. Can't argue with him, but sounds to me he is getting frustrated with the lack of talent and wouldn't be surprised if the team is starting to turn on him a bit for expressing that to the public.

He mentioned there is no emotion in the room at home and then proceeds that by telling the media negative things because of the "team we have". And you wonder why they have no emotion? coach thinks they suck.

Which, IMO, shows that the coach sucks at motivating his guys. I understand the people that are arguing that changing Cappy wouldn't fix all of our problems, because it definitely wouldn't at all, but you can't sit here and tell me that there isn't a coach out there (even our own two assistant coaches) that could get more out of this team than Capuano does. Every time I hear Weight or Thompson get interviewed I come away much more impressed with what they have to say and their attitude way more than I do listening to Capuano.

IMO Thompson should be the head coach with Weight as the assistant, I think that would be a solid coaching combo for this team. Even vice versa would be better than what we have right now. Firing Capuano may not be the solution to this team (we know it isn't) but it's definitely part of the problem, something that CAN be improved and NEEDS to be improved.

Heat from who?

Staple is in his pocket and will release an article saying it needed to happen, Katie Strang's espn new york page would be lucky to get 30 views, IPB isn't the same and even if it was when has Charles Wang ever cared about backlash?

The fans can boo/shout/claw their eyes out all they want but Charles will continue to do things his way.

It kind of hurts to see the Ottawa Senators on a 5 game winning streak without their best players playing(Karlsson, Spezza, Michalek, and Cowen). Just goes to show how good of a coach MacLean is.

It doesn't hurt that Ben Bishop has been outstanding. That will make any team look good.

Ask yourself one question, if cappy IS fired will any other team in the NHL hire or even interview him as their next head coach? A resounding "no"...so while everyone can blame the rosters talent level (which isnt great IMO) we dont have a coach getting the most out of them either. There are a lot of teams that lack talent that are better us. If we get a coach that gets the most out of our roster, we may not need as much as we think...but to really evaluate what you have, the current roster has to play at maximum capacity which IMO cappy can not accomplish at this point

Ted Nolan got a team with a defensive core of Witt, Poti, Bergeron, Campoli, Gervais, Sean Hill, and Drew Fata into the playoffs....look at that defense and tell me that this year's is any worse.

And Boudreau with Anaheim (and WAS before that)

And Carlyle in Toronto (missing Lupul, Frattin, Reimer)

And Capuano, missing Joensuu and....uhhh.....PAP?

It was right about this point in the season where Gordon got the axe. I'm gonna say that by this time next week Cappy will be gone. Especially considering the terrible record at home is not going to increase gate revenue.

That alone will be enough for Wang to pull the trigger.

According to BD on Twitter he says this:

B.D. Gallof ‏@BDGallof
Fact is, #isles are only a couple of games from just above .500 which is a reasonable tract this season despite. Next 5 gms are key

https://twitter.com/BDGallof/status/306779108040392704

B.D. Gallof ‏@BDGallof
HOWEVER... Next 5 games are critical for HIM & #isles season. Must accrue at least 8pts. Disasters at home in front of owner could oust him

https://twitter.com/BDGallof/status/306778874497343488


B.D. Gallof ‏@BDGallof
Best guess on Capuano tenure with #isles is he lasts thru year... bottom-line is how much below preseason expectations are they really?

no disrespect to BD, but this isn't really anything we don't know. There's no real info here. More importantly, this team has zero accountability in EVERY role - from owner down to the #7 dman and #14 forward.

Except Aucoin sits after going scoreless for a dozen games and Ullstrom for a few ineffective games....but you can't bench everyone, can you?

What are the OWNER'S expectations?

Hire the best and do whatever it takes to win?

I just threw up a little typing that.

Just like to say that people said this about Laviolette and Gordon and both of them are still behind a bench...not both as head coach. My point is this is kind of *********. Yes I think there needs to be a change, but I don't necessarily think Capuano can't be a good coach with a change in scenery. That's like saying Ruff is washed up... With coaching you may lose the reigns on a team but a fresh start gives you a new opportunity and you never know how teams will look at Cappy...

Guess i didn't read these boards back then, but if anyone ever thought laviolette wasn't a quality nhl coach they shouldn't be taken seriously or used as a reference to make a point.
