from Brett Cyrgalis of the NY Post,
Islanders’ GM Garth Snow does not agree with the 10-game suspension that NHL handed down to Trevor Gillies on Friday. As a matter of fact, he doesn’t even necessarily think the hit Gillies put on the Wild’s Cal Clutterbuck during Wednesday’s 4-1 win was a penalty.
“From the play, the way I saw it develop, there was a hit form behind on [Islanders’ rookie Justin] DiBenedetto by the Minnesota player,” Snow said on Saturday before the Islanders’ game against the Blues at the Coliseum. “Then Trevor comes over and tries to finish his check. The first point of contact was shoulder-to-shoulder, it was not a hit from behind by any means.”
