Now it appears the Islanders coach is taking shots at that loser Matt Harvey

From Brett Cyrgalis:

It was during that slog of a franchise-record nine-game road trip from late January into February when Doug Weight, the Islanders’ interim head coach, realized he needed help.

Just over a month into his tenure, Weight was trying to do everything. While making room for individual meetings with his young group, he cut short his own film session for the upcoming opponent.

Weight didn’t remember exactly what game it was, but he did remember that, when he got behind the bench, he “just didn’t like how I felt.”

“I didn’t watch the entire game, I kind of watched clips,” Weight told The Post over the phone recently, as he begins to assemble his new coaching staff after being named full-time head coach following a campaign in which the Islanders missed the postseason by one point. “I didn’t go out all night and not go to practice in the morning. My point was, I changed it a little bit, and I did it a little easier because I wanted to make sure I was doing the [individual meetings] as well as I could.

“Then I realized after that game, it was on that road trip, this is just not how I can do it. At that point, I knew I was going to need a little more assistance.”

“I didn’t go out all night and not go to practice in the morning." Ouch.
