The Islanders have fired Coach Ted Nolan. No replacement has been named. I liked Nolan. Hopefully, he'll get a chance somewhere else.

Yes both sides cited "philosophical differences" apparently, which is nothing new for Nolan. He's a good guy though...and as an aside how long has Garth Snow been the Isles' GM, because I'm so out of it apparently, I thought he was still playing.

Sounds good, but when will people stop calling it a "once-in-a-lifetime" event?

NHL awards Winter Classic to Chicago
TSN.ca Staff


The NHL has awarded the 2009 Winter Classic to the Chicago Blackhawks, who will play host to the Detroit Red Wings on January 1, 2009 at Wrigley Field.

Wrigley Field was chosen over early favourite Yankee Stadium.

"We expect interest to be on an international level for this once-in-a-lifetime event," Blackhawks chairman Rocky Wirtz said.
Last season's Winter Classic between the Penguins and Sabres on January 1st drew an NHL record 71, 217 fans to Ralph Wilson Stadium in Buffalo.

"The NHL is delighted to bring its most historic rivalry to one of the most historic venues in sports," NHL commissioner Gary Bettman stated.

The meeting between the two clubs will be the 701st all time. No NHL opponents has played more regular season games against each other.

The Red Wings are also looking forward to being a part of history, even if they are not the hosts.

"We've been a candidate to play in this for a long time and everybody in our organization is excited about being a part of what is becoming an annual outdoor classic," Red Wings general manager Ken Holland said.

"It's a tremendous opportunity to promote our game, our league and our team and have a once-in-a-lifetime experience at the same time."

The Islanders just announced Nolan's replacement. Scott Gordon, former AHL Coach of the Year, has been named as his successor. This is his first NHL coaching gig.

Maybe they'll get right this time.

Come on, he's not a goalie.

I remember when I used to be proud to root for the Isles. That was looooong ago.

Bossy.

NSW, do you agree that sports is cyclical by nature? Don't fret, the Isles will have their day in the sun in future, as will most teams (except for those perennial losers, the Maple Leafs) who are currently experiencing some trying times.

Take the Blackhawks for one. I predict good things for them soon, although they will never be as good as the Wolves.

Most things are cyclical, but, how long do the cycles last? The Isles are in a very long shit cycle. When does it end? When Wang fucks off.

Blackhawks seemed poised to at least make the playoffs next season, but, yeah, comparing them to the Wolves is so-o stupid,

Good for you. Quite a year for you sports-wise, eh? Final Yankees homestand at Yankee Stadium, All-Star game, and outdoor hockey game at Wrigley.

If I manage to score tickets to the Hockey game, yes....and, if the Cubs or Sox make the playoffs, I should be able to attend a game or two......but the Yankee Stadium stuff blows the other stuff out of the water.
