The Lemaire Example--Hire a Proven Winning Coach

The Islanders need to hire a demanding, proven leader to get the most out of their talent. Everyone here who wants to dissect guys like Comeau and Tavares should really look at what Lemaire has done with the Devils instead. They are 8-1-1 in their last 10 games with a really patchwork team that is not really better than the Islanders (I would argue Isles actually have better depth).  What the Islanders need to do is hire a Cup-winning experienced coach who can take the players they have ( and will have--Nino, Cizikas, de Haan) and show them how to be winners. We havent had a seriously tested coach since I dont know when--Laviolette was unproven, Gordon same, Capuano same. Get 
a guy who is going to show Comeau to pass and make simple plays, show Tavares that he has to play every second of every shift, show Bailey to just get the puck out of the zone. I think it will add more than any one player that we all obsess over.
