The veteran goaltender dragged Post reporter Barry Baum into the middle of the Isles' dressing room Tuesday and dressed him down in front of the team.
Vanbiesbrouck went up one side of the reporter and down the other while his teammates looked on and chuckled.
"I felt sorry for the guy," one Islanders player said of Baum. "Nobody should be subjected to that."
Baum also wrote that former Islanders greats have met with owner Charles Wang and Sanjay Kumar to ask them to fire general manager Mike Milbury.
