Trotz conference call

Islanders website release & comments. "Barry brings to the New York Islanders franchise a tremendous amount of knowledge, experience and success," said Islanders President and General Manager Lou Lamoriello. "He is and has been one of the top coaches in the National Hockey League. I am excited to have the opportunity to work with him."

NYIFC Comments: Thrilled........absolutely thrilled !!

This is someone you let run with this job for 20 years, and move him into management when Lamoriello is done, people like them can do any job successfully.

I would have made him the highest paid coach if that's what it took, made no difference, it pays for itself.

No words can express the joy this brings me. Wanted this more than Tavares resigned. He'll make everyone better on this roster. So happy for our fans, they really deserve this.

Stay tuned, not sure if any kind of press conference with management in Dallas or next week when they get to New York.

They got Barry Trotz.

Feels like Mr Torrey was watching over this one with Al.
