Snider is a passionate owner, and that's about all that I can objectively say as We don't know what his role really consists of.
We don't know the actual influence he has with decisions but we can infer from his own public statements. It really isn't that hard to read between the lines. He most likely had significant influence in the Carter and Richards trades considering Holmgren was practically in tears explaining the decision, he came out and publically stated that the goalie situation would be fixed and not happen again, he then came out and publically said the coach needed to tighten up his system.....he meddles period! Yeah it's his team and he can do what he wants but he really needs to trust his own leadership. If he doesn't then he should fire them instead of trying to influence their decisions and disempower them. He's lucky with the Carter and Richards trades that Holmgren did a good job netting assets but the Bryz influence has had some pretty bad blowback.
