yeah, Nolan and Maurice both have their work cut out for them but they're also two of the better coaches added this offseason.

I'll be most interested to see what Crawford can do with the Kings. That team looked like it was going somewhere for most of last season but then imploded. Crawford's a good coach, so it should be fun to watch what unfolds in Lala land.

Isles coach Nolan relishes return to the NHL after nine years away

MONCTON, N.B. (CP) - Ted Nolan knows very well what the hockey world must have been thinking when GM Neil Smith was abruptly fired by the New York Islanders this summer, given what transpired in Buffalo nearly a decade ago.

"It's funny, as soon as that happened my brother called me up and said: 'Well it only took you 40 days to get rid of this GM,"' Nolan said with a laugh Friday. "My friends called too, they were all kidding me, because they know the last situation in Buffalo was fabricated nonsense."

The debacle in Buffalo back in 1997 remains no laughing matter. Wild rumours spread in the wake of John Muckler's firing as GM, most of them centring on Nolan being behind Muckler's demise.
