Pete DeBoer was fired earlier today.

Guess it makes sense. I think he's not all that bad of a coach, but his style versus Dale Tallon's style clearly don't match up.

I wish Charles Wang would fire himself.

Or sell.

Either works.

Mike, don't you have enough money to buy the Islanders AND build the Litehouse project?

One or the other, not both.

It really is frustrating, but considering some of the other teams I root for, I cannot complain.

If it's any consolation the Florida Panthers just set the record in NHL history for most consecutive seasons without making the playoffs.

It helps a little. Misery loves company.

My 1993 post, before, if you don't already know, represents the last season the Islanders won a playoff series.

Well I was 5 when the Panthers went to the Stanley Cup. So in essence, I've never experienced NHL playoffs for my home team.

The only thing I've ever known is bad. Yet they're still my favorite professional sports team.

Really? I thought it was meant to represent the last season a Canadian team won the Stanley Cup. I wonder who that team is? Hmmmm. And I wonder who they beat in the Conference Finals to get there?

I hate Dale Hunter so much. So much.

SO MUCH.

But, you guys were a juggernaut that post-season. So, even with a healthy Turgeon you were on your way to a meeting with the Kings.

I remember LeClair having some key goals in the playoffs, and we lost 2 OT games in a row to you and that was effectively that. And you had Roy.

Sigh.

That was so long ago.....Les Nordiques were still in Quebec.......wow.

Think how much it'll mean to you when the worm finally turns and such....

Yeah, I've [and all of the small bit of diehard Panther fans] determined that even making the playoffs is almost like making the Stanley Cup finals for us. I will be so unbelievably happy.

And you bet I'll be at every playoff series if they somehow manage to pass the first round. But lets not get too far ahead of ourselves here first. lets get a team that qualifies first

Word round town is that Ken Hitchcock is a candidate for the day old Panthers vacant position.
