As New York Islanders General Manager Lou Lamoriello tries to put the Islanders on a winning track he’s going to have to offload players that might not serve a purpose anymore. Here are three.
Lou Lamoriello has his work cut out for him as he tries to turn the New York Islanders into a winning franchise. His predecessor made a right mess of the Islanders roster.
Sure, look at the Islanders top five prospect system and you can see Garth Snow’s fingerprints everywhere. Shy of Oliver Wahlstrom, Noah Dobson, and Bode Wilde, Garth was responsible for the rest of it.
But while Garth may have been able to create a good farm system he wasn’t able to create a winning roster. When it came to surrounding whatever talented players he was able to draft, like John Tavares, Garth Snow failed miserably.
