For those who follow the Islanders on Twitter and Facebook, they do Tuesday Night Trivia during the offseason and when the team doesn't have a game. I had been late answering a few times with the right answer, but one night in August I was looking at my twitter feed as the question came up and I knew the answer. The question was "Which Islanders coaches were replaced with the coaches they replaced?" and the answers were Rick Bowness and Terry Simpson.
