The Eyes on Isles Podcast returns for episode number 21 as Matt and Mitch will discuss all things New York Islanders on and off the ice.

The New York Islanders are currently on a bye week and I must say, it’s been a relaxing few days. There’s not as much stress and agita in my body with this team out of my life for a week. But today, the podcast returns and we have a lot to discuss.

Mitch and I will be discussing what we’ve seen from the past three games, injuries and what we think of the Scott Mayfield contract.

Here’s what you can expect from episode 21:

Short Topics

Last 3 Games: Phi, Pit, NJD

The team went 1-2 over the stretch and ended their five-game skid. The Islanders goalie play looks improved but the defense still is subpar in front of Halak. Will the break help the Islanders or just our mental health?

Scott Mayfield Contract

Scott Mayfield received a new contract from Garth Snow. Both Mitch and I have differing opinions so we’ll go over the deal and what it means for the future of the d-pairings.


Josh Bailey, Andrew Ladd, Devon Toews, Linus Soderstrom and kind of Ryan Pulock have injuries. We’ll discuss the injury bug that has bitten the Islanders.

Long Topic: Garth Snow

Should Garth Snow stay or should he go? We all pretty much agree it’s been long overdue for him to get the boot but why is now a good time for him to go. Who would be a possible replacement for Garth if he is let go?


Lay off the Tavares leadership hate, please.

Should the Isles go after Jagr?

Do NHL GM’s really like Brock Nelson?
