In Garth's final season as the Islanders' goalie he and I were waiting for a faceoff in his end zone following a commercial timeout. The Islanders were a struggling team at that point and a pretty frustrated bunch of players. Snowy said to me, "You want to know a scary thought Frase? Things are going so bad for us right now that I'm the toughest guy we have on this team and I'm the bloody goalie!"
