Islanders fire Scott Gordon; in other news Charles Wang fires butler who can't cook Thanksgiving dinner with $3

Charles Wang took a stake in the ownership of the New York Islanders in 2000. 10 years ago. Since then, there have been 3 General Managers, 7 coaches (not including Al Arbour's one game), 2 beloved Islanders personnel released from the organization (Lafontaine and Trottier), and an up and coming Assistant GM released from the organization with virtually zero explanation. 7 goalies have played at least 30 games in a season, 4 players have worn a "C" on their chest, 3 players have been bought out, and 2 were given a contract of at least 10 years. When the Islanders face the Lightning tomorrow night, they will have their 8th head coach since 2000.

The one constant through it all? Charles Wang. Well, that and losing.
