Thank God that Vukota needs instant gratification guys a pain in the arse. Prefer Trotz over any other coaching candidates?

I don't think there's any question Trotz is the best candidate available, by a wide margin, and it's not just because he won a Cup.

He was looking for $5M/per x 5yrs in WSH, so I assume that's where negotiations would start for him. He may want more to come to a small market mess like the Isles.

Yep couldn't blame the guy

Lou has his great points definitely but his reputation may scare some people off including players if they like facial hair.

He exactly the type of coach they need to change the culture and send a message. It's a big win on several levels if they can land him.

That what I was saying yesterday. His hiring would change the perception of the Islanders around the league. It would be a huge shift in optics for the entire franchise.

I'm not convinced that would stop him if he is guaranteed the money. It's not like he couldn't get another job if Lou fires him.

This is true and if it's lucrative enough then who cares really? With that said these guys have pride and want to have a good career not gwt fired for forgetting to wear a tie .
I guess we went full complete opposite again. From milbury to Snow and now to Lameriello

Which in itself is of course worth every penny they pay him. Changing the perception of the team was mentioned by Snow but he did nothing but make it much, much worse.

We'll see who he brings in as GM.

I'm really hoping we won't see Snow at the draft. That would be another positive message.

I haven't seen anything. Lou keeps everything locked down. I don't think anyone will know anything until after it happens.

Clean shaven in a suit and tie sitting in the corner twiddling his thumbs.

That would be funny, but I'd still rather they hide him under a rock until his contract is up.
