New York Islanders General Manager Garth Snow admitted yesterday that he is going to limit the caliber of player he can acquire.
With the trade deadline approaching and the New York Islanders continuing to do their usual dance of being a fringe playoff team you’d expect a General Manager would want to go out and improve their team to finally go over the hump right?
Well, Garth Snow seems to have other ideas. He told Newsday that he doesn’t want to trade one of his four picks in the first two rounds for a rental player.
This is what he had to say:
"“So, are we going to at this point in time, be giving first round picks and high picks for rental players? I don’t think we’re in that position. Just doesn’t make sense.’’"
Just doesn’t make any sense? I’m at a loss for words at this point. If this year isn’t the time to go for it it’ll never be the year.
Remember the movie Heavy Weights? It came out in the year 1995, in the movie there’s a quote saying “Islanders fan, huh? Team of the future I say.” That movie came out 23 years ago and the New York Islanders are still the team of the future!
For as long as I’ve been on this planet, the Islanders have been the “team of the future.”
I can’t keep sitting through this just wait till next year bologna they’re stuffing down our throats. Garth has got to go. Get this guy out of our lives already, please.
It’s clear that he just doesn’t get it and at this point, I’ve just had enough. I think every Islander fan has, hearing excuse after excuse and getting nothing in return has grown beyond tiresome.
