No official word from the #Isles ahead of the Lamoriello conference call, but it appears that Doug Weight's entire coaching staff has also been let go. Not a surprise given the earlier announcements.

Lamoriello said "culture change" was needed and that's why he let Snow, "a close personal friend," and Weight go. Said he's already reached out to both.

Lamoriello says "everything is status quo" in regards to coaching assistants and front-office people. "The draft is in the hands of the scouts."

It's a beautiful day. Thanks for the first hand news Tom. Really put a big smile on my face all day.

Rifle checking in. Never been happier. One of my 3 best days as an Islander fan.

Finally that do nothing POS GM is GONE. And Lou means business. All in, go forward. Now get rid of Brock Nelson. Bring in Tyler Bozak. Straight up trade. Then get a goalie and 2 top 6 d men and we are all set.

Some questions, tho...

Do you think Lou was smart enough to include JT in this decision? Rumor is he spoke to players before doing this. Be interesting to know JT’s thoughts. Remember he never gave a ringing endorsement to either of them. I don’t think Lou would have rolled the dice on JT being pissed about this move with what is at stake. So perhaps JT, in a private conversation with Lou said something like “they’re both great guys, but we have been a laughingstock with them. So, if it doesn’t change I’m gone”. We’ll never know but I woulda loved to be a fly on the wall for that exchange.

Next, it says both are still with the organization. Does Weight go to the Bridge? We already know Garth’s new title is “Director of Ensuring the Suites Have Enough Nachos”. Interesting on Weight though.

So who’s the coach people? Blysma? Trotz? Remember he was told you lose in the first round and you’re gone, so he may actually win the cup and tell them to screw off. My take? Get a pro coach in here that knows what the hell hes doing. Scott Stevens as an assistant is fine, but not the head coach.

Anyway, very happy and yea CUPZ I’m all in. You?

I think they should really give us our pound of salt. First game back at the barn we set up a gauntlet the length of the lot and make Garth run it. Pound the Bastid with dog crap, piss on him, rotten tomatoes whatever. Now that would be fun.

Then we haul Dougie to the Whitestone (it’s closer and just as effective) and.....

Glad to have you back in CUPZ.

So who's available to coach that brings experience and no baggage?

I like Bylsma. He's won the Cup. Stevens asst. Have a coaching staff that has the hardware. Have been through the long grind of a championship and know how to get sh!t done. I know the current trend is young NCAA coaches who know how to coddle the precious snowflakes on the roster. Don't see Lou going that path. He's old school. Especially since this organization has been a joke for so long. He knows a kick-ass approach is needed. Shave your f#@kin beards and play some f#@king hard- nosed hockey!!!!!

Seen so much noise about Bylsma, but I don't know why I'm not sure and hesitant about him being coach though.

Obviously this was a move that had to happen, very happy.
