Don’t look so down, Jack. You get to keep your job. You have basically been cleared of wrongdoing. Garth has rightly jumped on the grenade.

Garth Snow: Isles Will Retain Jack Capuano As Head Coach

“Cappy will be back,” Snow said. “If we have an opportunity to add to our staff, the way we’d look to add a player, then we’ll do that. But I don’t expect to change the current staff.”

Friedman: Islanders Better Get It Right For Fans Before Bolting Coliseum

It’s almost astounding how quickly the tides turned; how fast chants of “We Want Playoffs!” were replaced with “Fire Cappy!” and “Sell Wang Sell!” and how suddenly everything went wrong.

Friedman: Isles Not Nearly The Trainwreck Everyone Thought Without Tavares

When John Tavares went down for the season no one thought the Islanders would be remotely watchable, let alone competitive. However, just the opposite has occurred.

Friedman: Wang Selling Islanders Has Been Inevitable For Quite Some Time

Whether it happens now or in two years, it is going to happen. A change of ownership isn’t a pipe dream. It’s an inevitability, and it has been for quite a while. It makes complete sense, from a number of different perspectives.

Report: Islanders May Want To Bring Nabokov Back As Backup Next Season

To expect Evgeni Nabokov to get through 60 starts in a season at this point in his career is asking a lot. But that doesn’t mean he wouldn’t be a fine insurance policy.

Friedman: Season May Be Lost, But Islanders’ Lee Has Been Found

The Islanders’ Anders Lee has played 11 games in the NHL. He has cracked the scoresheet in all but three, and has 12 points overall. He might very well be just what this transitioning franchise needs.
