Well no shit

After 2 years of being bounced in the first round and averaging 1 goal a game, change is needed.

Back to topic. Aside from the media "saying" how Torts isn't a good hire like Ed Willes article. Maybe we should take a look at Torts behind the interviews/cameras.

Who cares about reviews. Just look back at the teams he coached and their system.

I don't mind his blue collar style approach. North-south, no fancy pants bull shit.

It doesn't matter, Canucks are finished. Torts is just going to be a transitional coach.

The media are all against him coming here because of the way he treats THEM when have you ever heard a fan complain about a team winning games? 95% of fans don't give a shit if a coach doesn't give reasoning behind sitting a player for the third period, that will be forgotten the day after

The media just puts together this big storm because the coach gave them nothing to write about, big deal

And I gotta laugh at all these clowns phoning in saying "I've been a life long Canucks fan but with torts I'm done" yea I'm sure your fandom really extende deep if a coaching change for a team that can't make it past the first round is the breaking point..

what i find even more funny is people pledging allegiance to a team at all. unless you live in those small towns where its a one horse town and the community has nothing else to bond over about. but then again, that is pretty funny too

concept of loyalty? give me a break this, this would be loyalty to something you pay money towards. not a Rothschild blood line

its a fucking commercial franchise. similar to opening up your own KFC around the block

lol @ people thinking players/media are afraid of Torts.

The media will be absolutely LICKING THEIR CHOPS if he's hired. The soundbites are going to be nonstop and there are sure to be some sparks flying with certain members of the media.

Should make for some good entertainment for us fans.

Yeah, not sure where anyone is getting the idea that the media is "scared" of Torts. It's their job, if anything they're excited for the new change.

The New York Islanders are moving from Nassau County to Brooklyn, and generally speaking, that's a good thing.

One of the issues, though, is that their home come 2015 is the Barclays Center, which is a basketball-only palace designed for the Brooklyn Nets. Hockey can—and will—be played there, but the seating capacity will less than 15,000, and the scoreboard will hang over the neutral zone rather than center ice.

On Tuesday, the Barclays Center Twitter account released a photo of the setup for the Sep. 21 preseason game between the Islanders and New Jersey Devils, and it looks...weird.



Okey dokey. A couple notes—there are no seats behind one of the goals, either; we knew this was coming, but hadn't actually seen the setup itself; and remodeling will, by all accounts, be difficult if not impossible.
Barclays Center is set up for hockey, and it's weird (PHOTO) - NHL - Sporting News

Hockey looking nasty in Brooklyn if they don't change it back to standard stadium seating.

How did they design an arena without thinking of hockey? Aren't hockey and basketball the only sports played under a roof? C'mon New York...

But it doesn't matter since no one watches the Islanders.

So who else is wondering why it is taking so long for the announcement to be made if the contract was already offered and Torts is in town?
