I love that the head coach does not talk about the goalies.

Probably because he was afraid one of them would snap and beat his ass into a pulp.

Myself and 7 mentioned it yesterday it makes you wonder what a real coach could’ve done with some of our other teams? Damn shame that Snow was completely incapable of getting a real staff due to his insecurity which led to his obvious nepotism. How that went unchecked for twelve (frank)ing years is absolutely beyond me.

12 years!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! UNHEARD OF. 25 years from now there'll be a 30 for 30 on Snow and we'll all learn that he had a handshake deal with Wang, that he was never to admit that Wang knew nothing about hockey and in return Wang would extend Snow regardless of his record for being a good solider.

You can throw Cronin in their too.

How can I forget Cronin? I mentioned this yesterday it's only 3 games but this team did not even look this good even when they were beating Florida in that playoff series.

Coach Capuano, you just lost tonights game in the last minute, with your league leading leads blown in under a minute to go (statistic). What do you have to say to that?

"Well I thought our guys played a heavy game, battled hard on the half wall......Johnny was Johnny. Just didn't have that puck luck tonight. We'll watch some video and see where we went wrong...…. I never comment on the goaltending."

Reporter scratching their head as he answered nothing and gave the same canned response nightly.

Been saying that for years.

Have no idea how it was allowed to go on for that long. Asinine.

It was like Garth was paid to lose. Garth played the game and was an educated man. He could not see he needed better coaching?

The absolute icing on the cake was that presser that Snow and Weight showed up looking like they were going golfing, and the owner literally got up and distanced himself. Snow literally thought his job was safe...…..he had no reason to believe otherwise. Like yeahhhhh no biggie, I mean I've done nothing here in over a decade...….what could go wrong? Dohhhhh

Trotz now has 3 games to show the guys what works and doesn't and a few days to coach, a good system can win games and next year some younger guys should be ready and maybe a f.a or 2 will come here if the team shows improvement

The job wasn't safe but the money is. They will be paying him for years to do more or less nothing.

Every team has those I bet, and to be honest, that's nothing a good accountant cant find a way to write that off somehow. Ironic that like two of Snows biggest gaffs of signings (Yashin and DiPietro), now he is also being paid to stay away. LOL

Yeah, it doesn't affect the team but it bothers me that incompetent fack still gets a big fat paycheck. He should be publicly shamed and forced to move to Siberia in disgrace.

Imagine, if you are 20 yars old, you have only seen Milbury and Snow as your GM.

Pay the 3 bucks. The Athletic is worth it. Not only for The Isles Stuff.

Hey I am really happy from what I have seen so far. Every player seems to know their job and do it. They know if they play like crap Trotz will bench them or punish them. They all have to work this year. I can say this I know it’s three games but have said this team can battle for a playoff spot and are not as bad as people think.
All the signings have their jobs and they do them well. They are veterans on and off the ice. That is a big difference this year.
