A look around the web at the most recent New York Islanders news. Make Eyes On Isles your go to website for all things Islanders.

How do you go about replacing Howie Rose, one of the best broadcasters in the game. He’s the longtime New York Mets and New York Islanders broadcaster and after this past year he decided he had to give up the Islanders job.

Neil Best writes how the Islanders found their next voice, Brendan Burke. Burke is young, just 32 years old , but the Islanders are hoping that he stays long term.

Burke was inspired by two other New York legends to become a broadcaster. He had the privilege of sitting in on a broadcast from Michael Kay and John Sterling. From then on he knew that’s what he wanted to do.

Burke has experience calling games for a handful of AHL teams. His NHL experience comes from filling in on the St Louis Blues broadcasts. He grew up playing hockey so he knows the game and seems eager to get behind the microphone.

Elite Sports NY included in their coverage a video, so if you want to hear what he sounds like check that out. He’s got a good voice in my opinion. (ESNY)
