We should have never let that guy have that secret role in the front office. He was a double agent all along!

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?

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.

Some Nice Nino-age From NHL.COM

Some kind words about our favorite meteorological phenomenon.... ... and a quote from coach go-go that just keeps begging the question, "Is this the right guy?". "I think there's a good base and a good core that's in place," Gordon said. "In all areas we've improved from a development standpoint and on the ice. Another year or two and we could be a player away from really making our mark." Show some damn courage Scott, don't play the expectation management game NOW!!!!

Getting to Know: Islanders coach Scott Gordon

A little bit of personal and hockey background from the former goalie, who says he shook his goalie superstitions by the time he made it to the NHL. (Maybe that was why he didn't stick? I kid.) g/t @TavaresCountry User Note: As the season nears and articles come out more often, look for links like these in FanShots on the right-hand margin. To keep things tidy, I won't be "front-paging" every interesting bit that comes around.

Wang's WFAN interview (with Gordon contract slip)

Charles Wang's interview with WFAN's Mike Francesa. This is the one where he mostly promotes the Lighthouse project, but also inadvertently reveals coach Scott Gordon's contract (he of the "long leash" on the rebuild) goes another two years.

Gordon's contract, and other earth-shaking news

This is more like it. This is more like the type of s-l-o-w news I expect in July: While stumping for the Lighthouse project (OMG! Wang will be at the K.C. game!), Charles Wang inadvertently reveals Scott Gordon's contract runs for two more years, too. Two things you might quite logically inferred, but they'd never been disclosed and it's July so ...

Guerin v. Gordon

On TSN's "Hot Stove" from Nov. 1, Al "Rumormonger" Strachan says that before the widely reported captains meeting with Scott Gordon from last week was called after Bill Guerin and Gordon had a verbal spat during practice. Just family matters. A surprisingly Isles-heavy Hot Stove, as they also discuss DiPietro and the aftermath of the Weight-Sutter hit.
