Arbour to coach Isles one last time: No, it's not a 15 year contract.

I think it's a very cool gesture by the Isles, Ted Nolan and the NHL. 1,499 is just not the right number to end on.

God damn it, I love Ted Nolan ... and I'm starting to pull for the Islanders more and more. Maybe I'll get a t-shirt that says, "I love Wang!"

Great gesture for a great coach. Maybe Nolan and Snow will finally bring back some respect to the Islanders organization.

as a life long isles fan, this is the best news i've heard all off-season. hopefully, he'll get win number 740 that night, with bossy, trottier, potvin, goring, nystrom, smith, gilles, etc., in attendence. we need something to jump start the franchise (or should i say organization in my best canadian accent) back to championship level. And i know that when i think a pr move might help jump start us, how desperate i am for us to be a winner again.
