The Eyes on Isles Podcast returns for episode number 47 as Matt and Mitch will discuss all things New York Islanders on and off the ice.
Things have returned to normal a little bit since the craziness of last week. The New York Islanders continue to sign depth forwards and we don’t know exactly why or what Lou Lamoriello’s plan is with all of them.
The Islanders added KHLer Jan Kovar to the mix, Lou Lamoriello had some interesting quotes this past week so we’ll get into that as well. Also, Brock Nelson is going to arbitration so we’ll get into what we think he’s worth and how the Islanders will play with an old-school feel.
Here’s what to expect from episode 47:
What should we expect from Jan Kovar? Was last year’s down year a fluke or is he a player on the decline? How should his linemates be?
We’ll talk about some of the things Lou Lamoriello said over the past few weeks and what impact they have on the direction of the team going forward.
Brock Nelson Arbitration
Brock Nelson is going into arbitration with the Islanders. What is he actually worth, what could he ask for and what is this entire process going to be like.
Old School Feel
With Komarov, Martin, Cizikas, and Clutterbuck currently on the roster the Islanders are going to hit, hit and hit some more this year. We’ll likely see an old school style of hockey being played on the Island.
Here we’ll go over the latest discussions from Isles Twitter over the past week and try to bring it into a cohesive form.
