I hope Nabby starts tomorrow and both Joensuu and Lee play. I'd bench Boyes and Aucoin. Maybe I dress Boyes and sit Reasoner - saving Boyes for the odd PP.

No sense sitting two giants like JJ and AL with so many floaters in the lineup, especially in back to back games.

Really like the six man unit in defense...I think Hamonic was especially good. Streit (though many cant stand him) has a place on this team, even though he was caught on a long shift on the NJ goal.

in my opinion, i think street was the worst islander BY FAR tonight....

not only on the goal, he made several blunders and blew a few clears and shots tonight....if i could get a first round pick or a winger that can slide into our top 6 i would do it.....witht visnovsky resigned, i don't want him after this year anyways....combine that fact with brian strait hopefully coming back in the fold, i don't think losing streit hurts us as much as many think

Think about it, though.....All offense/no defense, followed by run and gun....followed by Flinstone, a good AHL coach who just has no management or ability to fire up his players in this country club. Followed by the second best coach we ever had with the worst management situation.....followed by the worst coach ever.

Then the interims and fillers throughout our history. And in there is Mike Milbury, the worst pox our club has had aside from ownership.

The list tells one helluva story. One BIG story is how well we might be if we hired a real coach somewhere between Milbury and now, and if Nolan were given a shot and allowed to coach.

Where do these numbers come from? Capuano has coached 183 games according to those W/L totals, not 147. If he's won 77 of his 183 games, that's 42.08% - not the highest in Islanders history. And just looking at some of the other coaches, there are other instances of the percentages being off and the games not adding up.

But, that win total still appears to be true. Good for Jack.

Well our next four games are huge. It's incredible how each successive game is almost exponentially more important than the last. Crazy thing is that if we do sneak in, we have a shot at making some noise too.

If we make the 7th seed we could match up against Montreal. As good as they are, we match up very well with that team. I'd LOVE to somehow end up in the 6 seed and play whoever the **** comes out of the South East.

No doubt there's a lot of games to be played and a lot of it's to go out way but i ove being this excited about games in April.

Capuano's winning percentage doesn't match up with his won-loss record.

The above numbers reflect Isles marketing efforts. All mathematical discrepancies in no way are related to Computer Associates shares or LHP planning.

Sorry, was in a hurry, and updated everthing except Cap's games total. His coaching line should read:
183games 77wins 82losses 24T/OTL 48.63%

I won't lie, when I threw it up, I thought his win% seemed way out of line too, but didn't have time to catch why it was so wrong.

correct, I read this thread and saw you just came back.
Gordon was 4-10-3 in the first 17 games of 2010-2011 then Fred took over and the team ended with a record of 30-39-13
So Cap'n Jack was 26-29-10 in the other 65 games
he was 34-37-11 last year (82 games)
so thats 60-66-21 total for almost 2 seasons (147 games)
we are 17-16-3 (36 games)
for a total of
77-82-24 for Jack Capuano (183 games)
42.07% (77/183) is what I got maybe that is wrong on my part??

Anyways YOU did the math. Thank you. I feel tired just from doing Capuano's record.


I beliece that Al's record is safe you guys probably didnt care that Terry Simpson was #2 behind Arbour, who would care if Cap was #2? Who would even know (except a few of us)

A tie/otl is considered like .5 of a win so it is 89/183

For tonights game, I would sit Aucoin/Reasonor and have Joensuu play. JJ adds some size and speed over either one of those guys and is more experienced than Lee. Lee could use a week of NHL practice before getting put into the lineup.

I disagree...I remember actual articles back then about how Arbour was getting so much out of AWFUL rosters that is was actually hurting the organization because it was dropping us in the draft and as a result stopping us from getting a top pick.

...no they certainly weren't but my point was coaching certainly does matter...most other coaches would not have gotten anywhere near the amount of output from those teams than Radar did. Like I said, papers like Newsday ran stories about how his "blood from a stone" ability as a coach might actually be hurting the franchise.

We cannot afford to sit both. Lee may be a center, but has no idea how to play that position at this level and Jonesuu won't fill that void either. Winning faceoffs is a key stat that helps us win games. Being so close in the playoff race, we cannot afford to take risks like this. We'd probably do it if we were in Florida/Calgary's position.

I say sit one of Reasoner and Aucoin and one winger..like Boulton. Anders is a big kid, so we can afford to leave Boulton out.
