Smooth move...

Link!

They cite "irreconcilable differences." I can only assume that has something to do with Nolan wanting to field a winning hockey team. 8)

I don't follow the NHL as closely as I used to, but what happens in July that prompts coaching and GM changes in hockey?

Moves during and right after the season, I can understand. But now seems kind of odd to me.

The Islanders are completely dysfunctional, have an insane owner, and a back up goalie who was promoted to GM. Nothing they do really seems to make too much sense...

Granted the coaching shelf-life is very frenetic in the NHL, the Devils won those 3 Stanley Cups with Three Different Coaches in a short-timespan that included Larry Robinson replacing Robbie Ftorek with a handful of games left and both Ftorek and Robinson still remained or returned back to the organization in some capacity. But, the Islanders have been downright ridiculous. They fire a coach who later goes on to win a Cup. They fire a guy who like Laviolette took absolute lemons and made lemonade out what they were given by the front-office.

Wang's problem is what was/has been Dolan's problem. Too much loyalty with the front-office and hiring some real head-scratchers with not very inspiring previous experiences in running a team.
