The New York Islanders will miss the playoffs for the eighth time in the Garth Snow era. What’s almost as repulsive is his win percentage.
To say the Garth Snow tenure has been bad would be putting it lightly. Sure, the New York Islanders had two 100 point seasons, their first playoff series win in two decades and some nice trades along the way but the bad far outweigh the minute positives we’ve seen over the last 12 years.
Islanders stat guy Eric Hornick dropped a rough one on us last night. Since Garth Snow has taken over the Islanders, only three teams have a lower win percentage.
Over that span the Islanders are 422-403-122. Only Buffalo, Edmonton and Arizona have a lower win percentage since the big man has been in charge. If that’s not a fireable offense I don’t know what it is.
That’s not even mediocre, which I think would be an oversell for Garth’s tenure, it’s straight up brutal. How can a GM be on the job for over a decade with the teams he’s built dropping the fourth worst win percentage over that span.
This has to be it for Garth right? I mean logically he’s gone years ago, but under new ownership, the team desperately must make a change. If Ledecky and Malkin decide to give it another kick at the can I wouldn’t blame fans for a second for throwing in the towel and not spending money on the team.
This is straight up ridiculous.
