John Tortorella may not be out of work too long.
According to a Newsday report, the former Tampa Bay Lightning head coach will meet with New York Islanders' GM Garth Snow on Sunday to discuss the team's head coaching vacancy.
Earlier this month, in a bit of surprising move, the Islanders fired head coach Ted Nolan due to a growing rift between the head coach and the GM.
"The process for me was something that took a lot of time to come to terms with," Snow told The Associated Press at the time. "We all know we probably weren't all on the same page in certain areas.
"It wasn't going to work if two people aren't on the same page. That's why the meeting was healthy because we both realized that there were differences in philosophy."
In two years with the team, Nolan amassed a record of 74-68-21 and led the team to the playoffs in 2007.
Tortorella had coached the Lightning for the past seven years, winning the Stanley Cup in 2004, but the new ownership group deemed him expendable after the team finished with the worst record in the NHL last season. Tortorealla was eventualy replaced by former ESPN analyst Barry Melrose.
