LHH Zeitgeist: Schedule Revealed of Snow's Meetings with Islanders Fans

"Ask not what the Islanders can do for you but what can you do for the Islanders. Also, can I use your bathroom?"
"Ask not what the Islanders can do for you but what can you do for the Islanders. Also, can I use your bathroom?"

Islanders general manager Garth Snow recently had one of those illuminating town hall-style Q&A sessions with season ticket holders, fielding fan questions about this past season and the team's plans going into the summer. Part of the annual initiative to closely connect with longtime fans and assuage fears, it's also a way to sell fans on why they should buy season tickets after another losing season.

But Snow's efforts won't stop at group meetings.

Lighthouse Hockey has learned of Snow's plans to make house calls with certain individual season ticket holders over the next week. The door-to-door tour will require sharp sales skills, some sparkling charisma and kid gloves. A little inside information wouldn't hurt either.

By procuring the services of an "Anonymous" group of Internet hackers/activists*, we have obtained Snow's top secret schedule for these visits that will take him across Long Island. But that's not all we got.

The Microsoft Office 98 spreadsheet also contains some pertinent personal proclivities of the selected fans, gathered by Islanders PR staff and ticket reps, that Snow plans to use to better influence his hosts. Whether it's a special request, a sensitive topic or a burning question, every season ticket holder has an issue that Snow wants to be aware of before taking on such a unique and delicate mission for the future of his club.

The schedule is presented after the jump, and offers a startling glimpse into the lengths the Islanders will go to regain fan confidence. Names have been redacted to protect the innocent and not-so-innocent.
