like many have wrote, Isles will hire only a roockie coach, who will look at this job as being an intern, work for cheap, get your name out there, make connections, and get a real job in a few years working for a NHL team rather then a AHL organization that plays in the NHL (isles),
i think your forgetting that hitchcock was asked to interview with us when gordon was being hired, but he said he wasnt gonna coach that year, and a few weeks later took the columbus job..
and hartley was apparently on tv recently that he flat out said wang is a nutjob after he interviewed and lost to gordon, so i doubt wang would hire him..
A very inflexible defense first coach.
Would have been good for the old Devils teams, not so much for the young Islanders.
I like John Anderson, who was not given a fair shot in Atlanta.
Maybe Kevin Dineen.
Also, Pete DeBoer when he gets canned in Florida.
Cappy is not getting the permanent job.
Hes an excellent coach, but the Isles cant win with their current lineup no matter who the caoch is. Its as simple as that IMO. Please, spare me the ******** of Snow offered the most money to Martin. In the end, it doesn't matter because Martin signed somewhere else. Bottom line is, he gave his coaching staff NOTHING to work with.
