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.

Newsday's Staple Did Vote On Season Awards

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.

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:

Debunking the Anonymous 3-Goalie Excuse

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.

Newsday's paywall: 35 subscribers

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.

The other day we had the Daily News reporting "Tavares scored but the Islanders lost" in Atlanta....

The other day we had the Daily News reporting "Tavares scored but the Islanders lost" in Atlanta. Now we get Newsday saying Peter Laviolette won his Flyers debut. Good times. (h/t Broad Street Hockey)

Newspaper Death Watch

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.

Splinters: We are all Islanders (except Hat Trick Blake. He's a Leaf)

Reactions from the Islanders blogosphere about Kansas City rumors, the return of Dubielewicz, and the 2-1 loss to Boston.
