Islanders co-owner Jon Ledecky apologized on Monday for ownership failing the fans, but refused to speak specifically about the future of GM Garth Snow, head coach Doug Weight, or any players.
"We are committed to long term success," Ledecky said. "Any decisions we make are for the long term success of our hockey club."
Snow and Weight had been "led to believe" that they would be back in their current roles next season, reported Andrew Gross of Newsday. However, Gross noted that Ledecky's comments on Monday make that idea seem questionable.
As the Islanders slid backwards in the standings and eventually missed the playoffs for the second straight season, Snow's decisions -- especially not doing anything bold at the trade deadline -- have been scrutinized.
Along with the uncertain future of Snow and Weight is the pending free agency of John Tavares, who said on Monday that he has "full trust" in Snow and Weight.
