New York Islanders Top 4 Snow Immitating Lamoriello
Snow as you’ll see, had a bit of a hardnosed reputation. Snow wasn’t afraid to drop the glove and the blocker when he needed to, or when he felt like it.
Goalies don’t usually get into fights. But Snow got into quite a few. It may have been the times and the teams he played for. He played with Ron Hextall so that alone should guarantee you get into at least one fight every year.
But even in Vancouver Snow managed to get into a fight with the opposition’s goaltender. His most famous bout was during the playoffs against Buffalo.
Snow, standing as goalies generally do, as a ten man scrum assembles in his crease. But rather than skate away once things get dicey, Snow gets his hands dirty. Poking and prodding. Which attracts the attention of Steve Shields and chaos ensues.
Also how amazing is a Rick Jeanneret called game? Just fantastic.
Next: What to Expect from Nelson
From here on in Isles players need to try their darndest to get the opposition goalie to skate the length of the ice to tussle with the other padded wonder. The ordre-du-jour is entice. Always entice.
