The Court Keeps Its Jester

Whether you agree (somebody does) or disagree with the decision to keep Garth Snow as the General Manager of the Islanders, this organization proved once again they can’t get anything right.  They continue to be the laughing stock of the league.  The national media and fans continue to view this ...

Why Doesn’t Anyone Talk

Silence is the only sound that comes out of the Islander organization.  While 30 other franchises handle their media obligation the Islanders treat them like an invading force.  Even with the Isles collapsing over the previous few weeks, the front office has maintained radio silence.  Yes, Doug Weight “talks” (or ...

Josh Bailey: Garth Snow’s Greatest Success

  While that headline seems like an exaggeration, it is not inaccurate.  One of Snow’s strengths as a general manager has been how he moves his way through the NHL draft.  The 2008 NHL draft was no exception.  In that draft, Snow traded down twice (from five to seven, then ...
