After a disappointing playoff run, Lane Lambert has found himself on the hotseat and could be relieved of duties sooner than anybody else.

The Islanders Dilemma

The New York Islanders are a team worth watching in the league. They have nine players signed on for the long term, but haven't had much success recently.
After making it to the conference finals two times in a row, the Islanders haven't been doing as well. The General Manager, Lou Lamoriello, seems dedicated to keeping the team together.
He's given long contracts to players like Pierre Engvall and Scott Mayfield, even though they're not the top stars. However, the Head Coach, Lane Lambert, might not be as committed.

Questions about Lambert

After losing to the Carolina Hurricanes in the playoffs, Lambert didn't talk to the media at all. It's been four months, and he still hasn't said anything.
Lambert could end up being blamed if the Islanders don't do well. According to Eyes on Islanders:
Lambert, deserving or not, will be the one the team moves on from if a move is deemed necessary, as he needs to get his team off to a hot start.

Lambert took over after the great Barry Trotz, but he hasn't done as well as expected. He might even be let go early in the upcoming season.
We'll have to see what the Islanders choose to do but knowing Lou Lamoriello, it will certainly be drastic
