BREAKING: Nolan Out as Coach

Greg Logan breaks the story a little more than an hour ago. Ted Nolan is no longer Islanders head coach, as Garth Snow and Nolan "agree to part ways". The article mentions nothing about a buyout, so it would appear that since Nolan still needs to be paid for the final year of his contract, this was essentially a firing by Snow.

I'm sure Ken will be in with more details and opinion later today; perhaps I will expound more later when I have the time. Early candidates according to Logan include John Tortorella, Bob Hartley and Paul Maurice; Bryan Trottier is not considered to be a candidate as of right now.

Never a dull moment with this franchise.

I can't believe I'm dragging myself to say this but snag John Tortorella somehow, some way. At least he's got a history of productivity as a coach.

Vote NO on Capuano.
