The Eyes on Isles Podcast returns for episode number 49 as Matt and Mitch will discuss all things New York Islanders on and off the ice.

Another summer week is in the books which means Mitch and I will be back talking all things New York Islanders on the 49th edition of the Eyes on Isles Podcast. The biggest “on-ice” story from this week was Brock Nelson re-signing for a year.

We’ll get into what we think of that contract for Brock, the very divisive third jersey debate, and whether Kieffer Bellows is blocked or not. In addition to that, we’ll go position by position and break down the strengths and weaknesses.

Here’s what you can expect from tonight’s episode:

Topics

Brock Nelson signs a one-year deal

The Islanders avoided arbitration with Brock Nelson and signed him to a one-year deal at $4.25 million for 2018-2019. We’ll talk about whether we like the deal or not if it makes him more or less tradeable and more.

 Strengths and Weaknesses by position

Pretty self-explanatory. We’ll go position by position and go around saying the positives and negatives from each and what to look for this year.

Is Kieffer Bellows blocked?

We’ll try to make sense of the Islanders roster and who is blocked and who isn’t for 2018-2019 with a focus on Kieffer Bellows who wants to play in the NHL this year.

The Third Jersey

Some people hate the fisherman, others don’t, we’ll get into what we think the third jerseys should look like for 2018.

Social Segment

In the social segment, we’ll answer questions and talk about the biggest stuff from Isles Twitter this past week.
