Nolan Gone As Coach

From Newsday:

The two-year marriage of inconvenience between Islanders general manager Garth Snow and coach Ted Nolan ended today. Irreconcilable differences over the direction of the franchise led to a mutual decision by Snow and Nolan, who met earlier this morning at Nassau Coliseum, to part ways.

Not going to comment this until after I find out who the next coach of the Islanders will be. Like the draft, there is more to this story, and it ends with the hiring of a new head coach. Nolan did not want to coach younger players, instead, favoring the veterans, which does not fit the "Plan" Snow is currently implementing. More to come later.
