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.
This is his ballot, choices, and an explanation of why he chose to vote despite the boycott by the local chapters of the PHWA.
My personal opinion is that he chose the professional course in this matter. Who knows if the outcome would have been different if he was present for the vote, but I would bet that he received some pressure from his brethren. Kudos Mr. Staple.

Weep and question the existence of a higher hockey being in comments. Link to be updated as a story becomes available.
At least one Islanders player blames their recent losing streak on the presence of three goaltenders, rather than the team's continual presence in the bottom five of most important offensive categories.
It's all of you expat Islanders fans, isn't it?
Very interesting piece in the NY Observer about this topic and others in Newsday's Dolan Era. For the life of me, I can't understand how you start a pay model with one-size-fits-all pricing.
So free access to Newsday content ends tomorrow, which stinks for non-subscribers and out-of-towners just looking for Isles news. But of course it's no surprise why they're trying something else (and I think they'll have to adjust their pay model on the fly).
The U.S. newspaper industry as it exists now is sick and getting sicker. Despite repeated cuts, it's going to be hard to calibrate a local model that works.
For sports fans, long live the beat writer. Or so you'd hope.
