-- @cbentivenga1472It's impossible for anyone to say they know where the Islanders might turn for their next coach after firing Barry Trotz on Monday because general manager Lou Lamoriello does not allow for leaks of information. His voice wouldn't be new because the players know him well, but Lambert has also been long considered a future NHL coach. Maybe Lamoriello and the Islanders would feel his voice is new enough because it would be coming from Lambert the coach instead of Lambert the associate. Babcock hasn't coached in the NHL since getting fired by Toronto on Nov. 20, 2019, 18 months after Lamoriello left the Maple Leafs and came to the Islanders. Again, pure speculation, but Babcock is likely a candidate.What about Brent Thompson, who is in his ninth season coaching Bridgeport, New York's American Hockey League affiliate? Assuming Trotz wants to coach next season, my guess is he will play a waiting game until at least the end of the first round to get a better lay of the land on the potential job openings. You're right in that Fitzgerald never actually said Ruff would 100 percent return next season so that does cast some doubt, but with the support from the players and the GM saying he needs to support him, too, I would think at this point the plan is to have Ruff back with a new staff around is the official web site of the National Hockey League.
