The New York Islanders continued their purge, this time they let go of Greg Cronin who served as the associate coach since 2014.
Lou Lamoriello has wasted no time with making changes to the New York Islanders in his short time with the team. The latest victim was Greg Cronin, who was an associate coach under Doug Weight and Jack Capuano.
Cronin,55, has been an associate coach with the team since 2014. He also served as an assistant coach with the team from 1998-2003 and then ended up coaching Bridgeport from 2003-2005.
This guy has been with the organization for a long time, yet Lamoriello didn’t hesitate to remove him from his post. It’s understandable when there is a change up top, things are bound to change with personnel.
In past years, the organization has possibly been loyal to a fault with some of their guys. This is a welcomed change from Lou Lamoriello.
We’re yet to find out about the rest of Weight’s coaching staff but you can assume they’re not too far behind. With the draft, seven days out the Islanders will likely have a new coach by that date.
