New York Islanders Roundtable: Garth and Jack’s Christmas Gift
I’m a notorious Grinch when it comes to Christmas. My wife and I have a standing agreement on Christmas decorations that we sat down and negotiated when we bought our home. She wanted both indoor and outdoor lights, and garlands, and music. I wanted none-of-it. We met in the middle with just a tree, stockings, and music the day of.
I don’t like the buildup, the nearly two months of festivities, and the need for everyone to have that intimate Christmas experience with anyone and everyone they meet.
So as such, my general disdain for this time of the year is going to be reflected in what I get each of these two individuals: basic and completely made up.
For Jack Capuano, I’m going to get him a thesaurus. I’m just tired of hearing the same ol’ lines in his press conferences. So if he’s compelled to say the same thing all the time the thesaurus should help him spice it up with different words.
For Garth Snow, I’m going to give him a truth serum disguised as Club Soda. I want to know why he continues to hold three goalies. Is it insurance for the expansion draft? Does he just think goalies are like Pokémon? The I want to know what he saw in Andrew Ladd.

I understand why Garth paid the price he paid for Ladd. But I just want to know what he thought then and how it stacks up now. Is Ladd exactly what Snow thought he was?
Happy holidays Isles fans. Have fun celebrating with your family and loved ones.
