New York Islanders Roundtable: Replacement GM, Is He Out There
New York Islanders management is being served notice by its fans: “we want you out”. That’s great and all, but who comes in to replace that vacancy? Got anyone good in mind?
There are only a few options for an NHL team when things aren’t going well like the New York Islanders. They either do nothing, fire everyone, make a trade, or fire some scapegoat power play coach.
The response of a team’s ownership decides exactly how seriously they view the problem. Either they don’t see a problem or their hands are figuratively tied, in which case they won’t do anything, kinda sound familiar?
But what we asked the Eyes on Isles staff writers is: What if the owners saw a problem. What if the problem was so disturbing that they had to act? And they fired Garth Snow.
With a vacancy at the General Manager position, what do the staff writers think would be a good fit? So the Eyes on Isles staff writers are Jon Ledecky and Scott Malkin? Minus the deep pockets (sorry guys).
Who do they put in Snow’s place to turn this around?
That’s the goal, to turn this around. Not to start another rebuild, but to get this team back into the 100 shape they had shown to be over the last two season.
