You wanted the best, you got... Out of Context Quote of the Week.

"Because personally if I was being choked by Ric Flair, my personal reaction would be well, "Glrrrrkkk, can't breathe" but after that... "Man, I'm being choked out by Ric Flair, this is so cool." and then some more "Gllllrrrrk, can't breathe."" (Llakor)


The AP's reporting that the Isles have canned head coach Steve Stirling after a year and a half (x.go.com).

    Originally posted by AP
    An interim coach will be in place before the Islanders' home game against Calgary on Thursday night, and it won't be general manager Mike Milbury, the person told the AP. The rest of the coaching staff is expected to remain and Stirling will likely be offered another position within the organization.

    He went 38-29-11-4 during his rookie year of 2003-04 and guided New York to its third straight playoff appearance after taking over for the fired Peter Laviolette. But a recent skid dropped the Islanders out of the playoff picture and sealed his fate.

    The final blow came Tuesday when the Islanders lost in Nashville to fall to 18-22-2, fourth place in the Atlantic Division.

After 10 coaches in the past 12 years, isn't the problem there more with GM Mike Milbury?

Well, that's been settled too:

http://sports.espn.go.com/nhl/news/story?id=2289713

Brad Shaw to take over as Isles coach, Milbury to step aside once a new GM is found. The hope is that the new GM will be in place to handle all the moves in the coming off-season.

I'm glad Milbury saw this thread overnight and realized he had to go.

I think every Isles fan today is breathing a small sigh of relief that, finally, Mad Mike has been removed from the day-to-day operations of the team.

But I am getting a bit confused every time I hear interim coach Brad Shaw referred to by name...too bad he didn't come out onto the ice tonight in a limo outfitted with steer horns. :)

I'm glad I'm not the only one...every sports commentator I've heard says "Brad Shaw" very quickly, so it sounds like "Bradshaw".

Whatever mojo he used worked tonight, as the Isles were able to beat the Flames (blowing yet ANOTHER lead) tonight.

Krushelnyski RULED. Hall of Fame worthy? Maybe. (569 points in 879 NHL games). Looking back to old Flames teams, there were so many players that should/will be inducted into the Hall: Kent Nilsson (686 points in 553 games)
