The Islanders have reportedly begun discussion with former Maple Leafs GM Lou Lamoriello on a position within their organization, per SportsNet's John Shannon.
The Leafs officially promoted Kyle Dubas to GM over the weekend, and according to The Athletic's Arthur Staple, Lamoriello "has no intention of staying on to perform" his advisory role he is supposed to transition to with Toronto.
Islanders co-owner Jon Ledecky said that all aspects of the team's hockey operations was to be evaluated, and adding someone to their front office was in the cards.
If Lamoriello is to come on with New York, it would be interesting to see in what role if current GM and president Garth Snow doesn't want to give up his titles. It is assumed he would have to keep one or the other.
Lamoriello has Isles ties with his son, Chris, serving as the team's assistant GM since 2016. They both worked together during their time with the Devils, where Lou won three Stanley Cups serving as team president and GM.
