Is Lou Lamoriello coming or what? It’s already been a week since rumors initially linked the Hall of Famer to the New York Islanders. So what’s taking so long?

How long is it going to take for the New York Islanders to appoint Lou Lamoriello in whatever capacity? That’s assuming they’re still being linked to the Hall of Fame builder.

Since being linked the New York Islanders, or better yet, Garth Snow, has signed a minor league player in Travis St. Denis and is now on a scouting mission in Denmark. Does that sound like a GM who’s in fear of losing his job? Absolutely not.

So even if the Islanders try to get Lou Lamoriello, in what capacity is that going to be? Cause it’s quite clear that Garth Snow isn’t going anywhere.

Matt and Mitch try and figure out what is and what could happen with the New York Islanders GM and/or position
Listen to “What If The NHL Had Cuts, Lou Lamoriello Chatter & Super Teams” on Spreaker.

What Else Did We Talk About?

We actually talk about other items than just Lou Lamoriello and Garth Snow.

What’s going on with Ilya Sorokin? What can we learn from the history of Russian goalies and more specifically Russian players and the New York Islanders? Can we extract something from that to understand if Sorokin will to North America?

Could John Tavares actually head to the Pittsburgh Penguins in free agency? First, would he even want to? And second, how would the league react to what would now be a super-team?

If the NHL had cuts like the NFL, who would you cut the New York Islanders roster to drop it to 23 players? Andrew Ladd is the first name right?
