In this week’s New York Islanders podcast, Mitch shares an embarrassing story from his youth and they discuss trading for Erik Karlsson.

You’ll have to listen to the podcast to hear my embarrassing story as a youth, but I’ll tell you a scenario that was proposed to me on how the New York Islanders could get Ottawa Senators captain Erik Karlsson.

What say you to giving up both New York Islanders first-round picks in 2018, Josh Ho-Sang and Calvin de Haan, in order to get Erik Karlsson and Bobby Ryan at a 25% cap reduction?

Do you make the trade? You get at the very least a single year of Erik Karlsson, likely the greatest defenseman to play the game right now. How would that help make up John Tavares’ mind as he approaches free agency?

What Else Do We Talk About?

Ok. I’ll tell you that the embarrassing story has to do with my prom night. Two events totally ruined my night.

  • We also go over some player grades and if they deserve what they got from our writing team.
  • The Bridgeport Sound Tigers serve at the pleasure of the New York Islanders. Except what have they actually done for the Isles but give them a bunch of fourth line players?
  • Oh and hey! Mat Barzal has been named a finalist for the Calder Trophy. There’s no way Boeser or Keller upset him. And looking at the rest of the defensive and goaltending field, it wasn’t ever going to be close.
