islanders have talked to lou lamoriello: report


lou lamoriello coming to save the islanders is no longer as crazy as it sounds.sportsnet reported friday the islanders and the former maple leafs and devils general manager have talked about a position in the organization. toronto made lamoriello’s shift from general manager to special advisor complete earlier in the day by promoting promoted kyle dubas 32 to general manager. the athletic reported earlier this week that lamoriello, 75, has no intention of remaining an advisor. it began talk of him landing with the islanders, who are coming off a second straight playoff-less season. lamoriello had said april 30 he planned on honoring his contract with the maple leafs, which said he would become a special advisor after three years as gm. adding someone with lamoriello’s track record — ...






only one way a lou lamoriello rescue of islanders would work


it makes no sense for lou lamoriello to join the islanders unless ownership gives the commander-in-chief command of the franchise. any other concept or job description would be fatally flawed.that means that lamoriello, who is expected to talk with scott malkin/jon ledecky in the wake of being eased into a do-nothing senior adviser’s role in toronto a few days after the leafs’ first-round elimination, must be given complete control of the hockey operation — regardless of whether he assumes the title of general manager and handles the day-to-day duties generally associated with the position.lamoriello must set the agenda for the department and must have final say over personnel decisions.it tends to be forgotten, but lamoriello was hired as team president (only) by the devils out of p...






former devils gm lou lamoriello joining islanders’ front office: report


the move also paves the way for a family reunion — lamoriello's son, chris, is currently an assistant gm with the islanders.






islanders gm on hot seat as lou lamoriello becomes a real target


the well-worn seat underneath garth snow is unquestionably warming up.the much-maligned islanders general manager now is in the direct line of fire with ownership going above his head to speak to the legendary lou lamoriello about some sort of front-office job, as reported on by two canadian news outlets friday night.lamoriello, the legendary former gm for the devils as they won three stanley cups, just had his role with the maple leafs change from gm to special adviser. he was replaced as gm on friday by young kyle dubas, and it has been reported lamoriello would like out of his contract that would keep him as an adviser for the next three years.lamoriello had the same role as an overseer with the devils when they hired ray shero as the gm in 2015, but he lasted only one year before takin






how lou lamoriello can save islanders from years of excuses


the title at this point is unclear, but the authority granted to lou lamoriello by islanders ownership is absolute. he and he alone will determine the fate of general manager garth snow. he and he alone will determine whether doug weight will get another crack at it behind the bench.lamoriello, whom we’re told on good authority received permission no later than the beginning of last week from the maple leafs to leave his do-nothing assignment as senior adviser in order to speak with owners scott malkin and jon ledecky, is the decider. all hockey department personnel decisions — as well as all player personnel decisions — will run through lamoriello.no one will be saved by a poison pill that might have been inserted in his contract by previous majority owner charles wang, who always s...






why stanley cup-winning coach might elude islanders


if new islanders boss lou lamoriello is interested in talking to barry trotz about the team’s head-coaching vacancy, he might not get the chance.after trotz’s capitals captured the stanley cup on thursday night, the newly crowned coach said he “absolutely” has a future in washington, despite his four-year contract expiring and reports he might head elsewhere, according to the washington post.trotz was considered a contender for the islanders job even before the caps won the cup — though lamoriello has not mentioned any candidates by name as he seeks a “culture change” on long island.“we’re going to get the best coach available,” lamoriello said last tuesday, the same day he fired coach doug weight and gm garth snow.trotz coached this season as a lame duck after the cap...

islanders give lou lamoriello a title and all the power


the islanders made it official on tuesday morning, announcing their hire of legendary lou lamoriello as president of hockey operations, in which, the statement said, “he will have full authority over all hockey matters with the organization.”lamoriello, who won three stanley cups with the devils, just finished a three-year stint as general manager of the maple leafs. per his contract, he was supposed to segue into a role as a senior consultant, but toronto granted him permission to speak with the islanders, and a deal was soon consummated.“we are grateful to [chairman] larry tanenbaum and the toronto maple leafs for their courtesy in allowing this move,” isles managing partner scott malkin said in a statement. “we are committed to giving lou every resource and the full support of...

islanders beat devils 5-4 in shootout


the struggling islanders desperately needed a boost and thanks to rookie sebastian aho, they received a lift heading into their bye-week break. the 21-year-old swedish defenseman scored his first nhl goal with his team down two scores in the third period, then assisted on the tying goal by cal clutterbuck before the islanders won in the shootout, 5-4 over the new jersey devils 5-4 on sunday to snap a five-game skid. "there's no panic in his game. he's come in with a lot of poise," islanders captain john tavares said of aho, a fifth-round draft pick by the islanders last june who was playing in his third game. "over the course of a season, we need everybody to make contributions." brock nelson scored the only goal of the shootout to give the islanders (21-18-4) their ...






islanders’ baffling strategy gives fans good reason to wonder


edmonton, alberta — if the underlying principle behind garth snow’s trade deadline inaction was the belief the islanders were far more than an obtainable piece or two away from competing for the cup, then the general manager’s thinking cannot be criticized.but, and there’s essentially always a “but” when it comes to this franchise, snow’s earlier refusal or inability to move at least some of the young assets and draft picks he has amassed over his tenure in an attempt to put his club in position for a legitimate run is confounding.two first-rounders this year — their own and calgary’s, and perhaps both lottery-eligible — then two more the following year give the islanders and their gm cover in talking about not jeopardizing the future.strange, though, that through a 10-...

both rangers’ first-round picks may make opening-night roster


bridgeport, conn. — lias andersson and filip chytil are each being given a chance to compete for an nhl roster spot out of training camp, and with jesper fast set to miss the first several weeks of the regular season as he works his way back from hip surgery, it’s possible both of the rangers’ first-round picks from the june draft can make the opening-night roster. “i think that because jesper is not gonna start, i would say there is a possibility that they both could be here at the start,” alain vigneault said friday of the pair of 18-year-olds before the rangers lost 2-1 to the islanders here, where the isles’ ahl affiliate plays. “their play will decide that, but both of them have been playing well. but there are some other guys — and i don’t want to get into ...

who rangers could draft if they stay at no. 9


dallas — the rangers are in an enviable spot going into the first round of the nhl entry draft starting here on friday night, holding picks nos. 9, 26 and 28. also with a bevy of restricted free agents on their roster, general manager jeff gorton has quite a bit of flexibility if he wants to make a move — either up or down in the draft, or for a current player.leaving the gms meeting on thursday night, gorton made it clear he was listening to all options, but he was also comfortable using the picks.“we intend to use them, but they are in play,” gorton said. “so as of right now, we’re going to use them, but if something comes up, that’ll change.”if the moves are contained in the draft, there are some interesting scenarios and players gorton could pursue. consider that the sa...

islanders’ playoff hopes take hit after listless loss


there are seldom meaningless hockey games in march, but for the islanders, every recent game has felt like a life-or-death affair. following a franchise-record nine-game road trip, an eight-goal meltdown against carolina and redemptive heroics the following night, the islanders needed an easy win.what better opponent for that than the jets, who came into barclays center losers of four straight?and yet, after the islanders took an early lead, the jets took control of the game and rolled to a 4-2 victory. the game was never particularly close, as the fatigued islanders were thoroughly outplayed and looked dreadful between the pipes.with the loss, the islanders fell behind in the fight for the no. 8 seed in the eastern conference. and as a brutal five-game stretch looms, the islanders are in

john tavares in position to let islanders’ anxiety keep growing


with each passing day, the anxiety level rises just a little bit. come another month, especially after the nhl draft on june 22 in dallas, if john tavares remains unsigned with the islanders, the fans will be in an all-out tizzy.but it sure seems that is where the signs are pointing for the captain, who will turn 28 during this next training camp and has dutifully played out his first nine seasons with the organization that took him with the no. 1-overall selection in 2009. if he has gone this far without making decision — and the islanders have continued to allow him the biggest breadth imaginable to consider about other options — then why not at least go through the free-agent courting process from june 25-30 and see just exactly what is available? tavares remained steadfast in his s...

she's been thin, she's been fat. hear what this anorexic has to say about body p


when we try and think of body shaming, we usually picture an overweight person being called names or facing flak over being “lazy”. lately, we have witnessed a motion against this bullying as people with “undesirable” body-types have displayed love towards the person in the mirror. yet, we tend to ignore how body shaming continues for people with skinny bodies. a self-proclaimed ed (eating disorder) warrior, megan jayne crabbe, has set out to balance out the prevailing notions pertaining to a “normal” body. an anorexia survivor herself, megan challenges the common misconceptions- being thin isn’t always good and being fat is okay too.megan was diagnosed as an anorexic when she was 14. “you see, within 5 years of being on the planet, it was already ingrained in my mind that fat was the wors
