Is it time to part company with RDP?


My take on the troubled former franchise goal tender.

Pat Bingham will not return as head coach of Bridgeport


Katie Strang #Isles will not be bringing back Pat Bingham as head coach in Bridgeport. No head coach names as of not. To be continued 21 minutes ago via web Favorite Retweet Reply Pat Bingham won't be back as Sound Tigers coach. No replacement named. Matt Bertani, trainers expected to return. 3 minutes ago Favorite Retweet Reply Does this open the door for Doug Weight to begin his coaching tenure? Doesn't sound like a great plan, but hey, convention is overrated. Will update link with full story when available. This is kind of shocking since there was really very little opportunity for any coach to prove anything. They had injuries and call-up problems all year.

Capuano to Remain as Isles Head Coach: (Strang/Newsday)


"Assistant coaches Dean Chynoweth and Scott Allen are both expected to return; the Islanders are also considering bringing Doug Weight into the coaching fold if he retires." Link to team release:

The DiPietro Audio and the rest from "Breakdown Day"


Newsday's Katie Strang reported earlier today DiPietro bristled when confronted with questions about his place on the goaltending depth chart, but both Montoya and Poulin are expected to push him for the starting spot next year. "The 29-year-old feigned confusion when asked about his competition in training camp, asking "Who are we talking about here?," but the numbers make it abundantly clear. Montoya led the team in wins with a record of 9-5-5 and finished with a save percentage of .921 and 2.39 goals against average. Before a freak injury in warm-ups ended his season in February, Poulin posted a GAA of 2.44 and save percentage of.924. DiPietro finished last in the league in GAA ( 3.44 ) among all goaltenders with 25 games or more and second to last with a .886 save percentage." To me, the audio does not sound overly harsh, but DP becomes hushed in response to the previous question...which was similar. This is out of character for Katie Strang who is generally very conservative in Islander criticism. Make no mistake, while Chris Botta did write a story on this for IPB, the original was not his doing. Additional interesting answers from PA Parenteau on the differences between Gordon and Capuano and Haley and Gillies were good as well. I have not listened to all of them. What do you think?

Good NYT Look at Capuano


He doesn't seem to have any thought of changing anything...which makes you wonder what the point of this was.

Scott Gordon Fired


Per Katie Strang at Newsday, Gordon has been relieved of his coaching duty in New York. (Editors Note: Per team release, Jack Capuano (AHL Bridgeport head coach) takes over on an interim basis, while Gordon become adviser to the GM.) Well, you can't fire the Players.
