The Eyes on Isles Podcast returns for episode number 26 as Matt and Mitch will discuss all things New York Islanders on and off the ice.

The New York Islanders past week has been a wild one. An unbelievable comeback, a couple of ugly losses and then one more game tonight. Plus keep in mind Doug Weight made an extremely controversial coaching decision.

Between the actual play on the ice, and breaking down the coaching decisions made we’ll have a lot to discuss this week.

Here’s what you can expect from episode 26:

Short Topics

  • Last four games (BUF, DET, CAL, CBJ)

The Islanders are 1-2 so far over this stretch and are looking to make it 2-2 on the week. We’ll chat about what went well, what clearly didn’t and why we’ve had a few head-scratchers lately.

  • Thomas Greiss Stats

It’s alarming how bad Thomas Greiss has been. We’re going to do a deep dive on Greiss’ performances. You can make a legit argument that he’s the worst goalie in the league.

  • Ross Johnston Deep Dive

Is Ross Johnston the new Matt Martin? Ross Johnston has played rather well in a small sample size. Mitch isn’t so sold although I think he can be effective.

Long Topic

The big story this week was Mathew Barzal riding the bench. Doug Weight sat Mat late in the third period. Mitch and I will go into detail on why this was an extremely bad idea.


Both Mitch and I will talk about what’s trending on Isles Twitter, what the conversation is like in the facebook groups and the overall feeling from the fans with the current state of the team.

Next: Barzal Responds To Benching
