During the New York Islanders embarrassing loss, we heard the first chant of “Fire Cappy” of this young season. These fans might have a point though.
As the seasons change there are a lot of firsts of the season. The first cold day, the first snow of the season, and if you’re a New York Islanders fan you wait for the first “Fire Cappy” chant of the season. It happened last night in the Islanders ugly loss.
Normally I’m not one to hit the panic button just ten games into the season. But, when you’re team consistently comes out flat and lacks the ability to play a full 60 minutes there’s an issue.
We actually just talked about this a few weeks ago in our Eyes On Isles Roundtable. Initially I said he needs to be replaced, but with who is the question. I’m changing my stance slightly as I think it needs to happen ASAP.

We saw last year what a coaching change can do for a team. Look at the defending champion Pittsburgh Penguins, you can change a coach mid-season and still get results.
A change is long over due. It should have happened at least three years ago, and now we are stuck in a rut with the same issues as always. The inability to play a full 60 minutes is infuriating, and it all boiled over in an embarrassing loss to the Lightning last night.
Is Capuano on the hot seat? Probably not in the Islanders minds, but he should be.
