"The New York Islanders would like to thank Jack for his tireless work throughout his seven seasons with the organization as Head Coach," Snow said. "His leadership guided the team to the playoffs in three of the past four years, which included two straight 100-point seasons. He is a great coach and an even better person. We wish him nothing but the best moving forward."
"It's an honor to have served this historic franchise and its passionate fans," Capuano said. "I'd like to thank Garth and our ownership group for the opportunity to be the Head Coach of the Islanders. I'd also like to recognize our coaching staff, training staff and players for all of their hard work."

Despite writing it had to happen often back to last season (likely before) the man was part of this orgnization since 2005 so it's not happy news, I have no doubt he was well-likely among his players past & present.
Not the first time a team has won a game, and dismissed a coach, the man had a big smile on his face in the post-game vs Boston which seemed kind of odd.
We'll see if Snow follows which would be around 11 year anniversary of Milbury's resignation. Weight stepping in as interim gives him a look as a head coach.
