All Garth Snow

from Stan Fischler at the Hockey Journal,

Chances of a significant turnaround in the Isles’ near future:

There’s an excellent chance of that. Looking at the players we’ve drafted such as Tavares, Kyle Okposo (and) Josh Bailey and in developing those players, we’ve also restocked the shelves of our prospect pool, whether that’s in Bridgeport (AHL), NCAA colleges or Europe.

We’ve had success with Mark Streit and Matt Moulson from free agency, and right on down the line there’s a great feeling of where we’re going and how we’re getting there. We’re going to stick to our plan that we’ve implemented. We’ve made tremendous strides from just two seasons ago to last year, where we jumped 18 points in the standings — and with a younger team.

To make the next step, it’s up to us to get better this summer, to improve through strength and conditioning, good nutrition, sleeping habits and skill development. We feel really good about where we’re headed.

Note to Snow, the building is not what the fans want, the winning would be nice.
