The Lou Lamoriello to the New York Islanders rumors continue to heat up. Now, there’s a report that he has no intention to stay with Toronto.

Jon Ledecky promised that the New York Islanders would evaluate the front office. After the season, the Islanders owner didn’t guarantee a change but he left the window open for a potential change.

Ever since Lou Lamoriello was removed from his post of General Manager in Toronto, there’s been rumors of him joining the Islanders organization.

It makes sense, his son Chris currently works as the Assistant GM and Lou and Garth have a good relationship. There are even reports saying that Lamoriello has no intentions of staying with Toronto as an advisor.

Someone even described the situation to Arthur Staple as “inevitable” that he’ll be coming the Islanders way. I’m still in the believe it when I see it mindset with this, but it’s tough to argue why Lou wouldn’t be a good option.

He’s arguably the best General Manager of this generation, and if you look at his quick fix in Toronto it certainly makes his presence appealing.
