Garth Snow angry over John Tavares injury, Olympic involvement
Islanders GM Garth Snow isn't taking John Tavares' season-ending injury too well. He took aim at the Olympic setup, calling it 'a joke.'
|John Tavares announced himself loud and clearly last season as one of the best players in the NHL. Tavares scored 28 goals in 48 games and surely would've potted 40+ had this not been a lockout-shortened season. He is a sniper that seems to be getting better and better each year and that should continue as the Islanders build up the talent around him. If Ryan Strome were to play on his line, it will give defenses another highly skilled forward to worry about and should give Tavares even more room to work his magic. A first-round fantasy pick in almost all leagues. (Updated 8/12/13) |
