Taylor Hall is apparently up for another award, this one of the social media variety:
Amanda Kessel has re-signed to play with the Metropolitan Riveters, the Devils’ partner organization in the NWHL. [NWHL]
The Islanders have relieved GM Garth Snow and head coach Doug Weight of their duties. Lou will take over general manager duties and begin a coaching search. The team said both Snow and Weight will remain with the Islanders. Lou is back to his Devils level of power. [TSN] [Sportsnet]
Lou on re-signing John Tavares:
Lou Lamoriello, on how today's #NYI firings may impact his ability to extend John Tavares: "That certainly has not and did not enter into any of the decisions that were made."— Chris Johnston (@reporterchris) June 5, 2018
That one little phrase just brings a tear to the eye:
Lou Lamoriello said "culture change" needed with #Isles, why he relieved Garth Snow and Doug Weight. As of now, everything else "status quo" in terms of personnel, meaning assistants have not been relieved.— Andrew Gross (@AGrossNewsday) June 5, 2018
Will Lou bring back a familiar name?
Would not be shocked if Scott Stevens becomes a candidate to join #Isles coaching staff..— Andrew Gross (@AGrossNewsday) June 5, 2018
How conflict-free has Vegas' season been so far? Its current three-game losing streak in the final equals its longest skid all season (and in franchise history, haha). Golden Knights entering their deepest waters ever now.— Matt Larkin (@THNMattLarkin) June 5, 2018
