The New York Islanders announced today that assistant coaches Scott Allen and Dean Chynoweth will not be back next season.
Both Allen and Chynoweth were on staff before head coach Scott Gordon was fired in 2010 and replaced with Jack Capuano. So while we’re not saying they were forced on Capuano, maybe he wants to bring in his own guys.
A couple of weeks ago, team owner Charles Wang confirmed Capuano and GM Garth Snow would be back next season.
