With the upcoming NHL Expansion Draft just a day away, here’s what you need to know regarding New York Islanders general manager Garth Snow’s strategy.
From hearing the names Matt Duchene and Jordan Eberle flung around to Arthur Staple of Newsday announcing the Islanders plans to protect their players from Vegas, Isles Twitter has had and will likely continue to have an eventful week.
It seems that Snow is ready to dole out exactly what’s needed not just for the team, but to convince captain John Tavares to stick around long-term. If he can indeed convince Vegas GM George McPhee to hang onto not one, but two sizable contracts, a round of applause is in order.
With all signs pointing to some splash moves after freeing up some much-needed cap space, will the Islanders finally have the depth they need to excel in the playoffs?
