Bottom line here folks is that if the Islanders are committed to developing their prospects and taking pains to do so the general manager brining in these players and the coach have to have some security to make decisions that may mean short-term losing.
Otherwise both of these men will feel the pressure to win now and go with a player who will give them the best chance to win now which is usually a veteran.
It seems from my viewpoint Mr Wang is not sure whether this gm or coach are the right ones to develop prospects.
No doubt New York also brings pressure to win now so the fans will support the product which is going to put developing prospects to the test.
This is where all the talk of the Islanders plan will face it's toughest test and whether the general manager and coach will stick with that plan with no long-term security.
