New York Islanders: Did Noah Syndergaard Copy Anders Lee?
By Matt O'Leary
After not being traded Noah Syndergaard had an eerily familiar tweet to New York Islanders fans. Did he copy Anders Lee from July 1?
No New York Islanders hockey has been getting to me, so I’ve been very into the baseball trade deadline. There was a ton of rumors leading up to the deadline, including the thought that the Mets could trade Noah Syndergaard.
Thankfully, they did not and when he was still with the Mets after the 4:00 pm deadline he fired off this tweet.
If you’re a New York Islanders fan this tweet should look very familiar to you. On July 1, Anders Lee fired off a tweet that included this same very seen. The context for Lee was it appeared as he might leave as a UFA.
After the Isles missed out on Artemi Panarin, Lou Lamoriello inked Lee to a seven-year extension to ensure they had a top-line LW on the roster. This is the tweet Anders used after he extended.
His wasn’t nearly as good because he just tweeted the link to the video. If he ripped the video and just tweeted straight video with no caption that would’ve been so much better.
While I don’t think that Noah Syndergaard intentionally copied Lee, I do think he had the much better execution than Lee. The two blue and orange minds don’t think so differently after all.
