New York Islanders GM Garth Snow says he won't make any drastic moves for the sake of change
"As I've said many times, if there's an opportunity to upgrade our roster and make the team better, we'll do it, but not at the expense of our young guys or prospects," Snow said Wednesday. "We're not going to mortgage our future to make a quick fix. That's not our plan." Snow does not appear to be interested in giving up on any of his struggling young players or dealing his veterans for draft picks. The Islanders need to provide John Tavares with more support, but they haven't been willing to take any leaps of faith. They currently sit in 12th place in the Eastern Conference with a 6-9-1 record.
