“This performance comes with talk that perhaps head coach Jack Capuano’s time with the Islanders is coming to an end.” – nbcsports.com
Once again, the Islanders are having another abysmal season. But that certainly is not news. What is most disappointing, as the team draws closer to exiting the Coliseum, the orange and blue cannot put together some sort of winning record, at least for the fans. Bah humbug!
An awful season at the Coliseum
Someone should tell the Islanders that less doesn’t mean more. According to nhl.com, at home, the Isles are not even at .500 with a meager 9-18-5 record. But wait, it gets worse.
As far as league play goes, the team is currently sitting at the bottom of the Eastern Conference’s Metropolitan Division with 23 points. The only thing standing between Mr. Wang’s soon-to-be Brooklynites and being the worst squad in the NHL are the Buffalo Sabres.
A change at the helm
At this point in the season, the Islanders are 4-12-0 away. There is just one franchise with less wins on the road. That’s right you guessed it, the Buffalo Sabres. Wow, thank goodness for Buffalo.
Things have gotten so bad lately there has been gossip about Islanders head coach, Jack Capuano, getting canned.
About ousting Capuano, an article by Cam Tucker from nbcsports.com's ProHockeyTalk blog, published Dec. 8, 2013, “Islanders’ losing streak continues with loss to L.A.,” reports “given this recent spell, that appears to be looking like a stronger possibility by the day.”
Capuano has led the Islanders since 2010, which is nothing to write home about.
It looks like stockings full of coal for Islanders fans this year.
