Ted Nolan's rocky reign as Islanders coach is now over. According to reports GM Garth Snow and Ted Nolan have decided to part ways. Kudos to Owner Charles Wang and Co. for giving Ted another go at an NHL bench and getting his foot back in the door, and at YoDingDong we wish Ted the best.

This is the right move for the Islanders made by Snow, as this team does not need anymore off ice distractions that have plagued them in years past. This is a rebuilding process and youth movement to grow a skill and heart team. Ted seems to believe that given enough grit he can squeeze enough skill out of it to make something better. To his credit, he has in the past, however now you must give kids a chance to grow. There is a great core of heart in this team with Trent Hunter, Brendan Witt, and Ricky D leading the way.

Now we need some skill and scoring to develop out of the likes of KO, Tambellini, Comeau, Hillen, Bailey, Toews, and Petrov. The future looks good, now we need someone who can take young talent and nurture them into winners, and then help them grow to be Stanley Cup Champions. I, along with Snow, didn't think Ted was that guy.

Only time will tell, ie Peter Laviolette.
