Islanders Bits + Playoff Poll: Shero and Snow; Nino and CMac

"We're not moving West." - Bruce Bennett

The coach firings continue ... out West.

Colin McDonald, who does have job security thanks to a two-year extension signed during this season, does not have domicile security. At least according to this promo he shot for the Tavares for EA Cover campaign:

From Elliotte Friedman's 30 Thoughts (which as always, has more than this):

21. What victorious GM Ray Shero said to counterpart Garth Snow after the Pittsburgh Penguins-New York Islanders series: "You gave us everything we could handle and we wish you were moving to the Western Conference."

Canucks Army covets young forwards, including Nino Niederreiter and former Portland teammate Ryan Johansen. (Say, maybe we should target Johansen and get the Winterhawk band back together.) The baggage is collected therein, where you also see this rumo(u)r-ific scuttlebutt via the Winnipeg Free Press:

The Jets attempted to trade Burmistrov and reportedly had discussions with the Ottawa Senators, Buffalo Sabres and New York Islanders at the deadline. The names Jakob Silfverberg, Drew Stafford and Kyle Okposo have all been attached to Burmistrov trade rumours.

Cam Charron at Leafs Nation jumps off that thread to admire the 2012 Islanders additions.

The Angus 2nd annual Top 50 Trade Value list that features a couple of Islanders.

From the Islanders official site, Nino after his World Championship run.

Also, if you have a Long Island hockey player born between 2000 and 2001, here are dates for tryouts for the Islanders pee-wee team.

Elsewhere:

Finally, in our playoff polls we neglected to do one for the Blackhawks - Red Wings series, which continues Thursday night with the Wings ahead 2-1 in the series. Consider this your evening thread for Wednesday's game (Penguins vs. Senators), but also vote and chime in on how you think the rest of the Detroit-Chicago series will go.
