If you could ask any current New York Islanders player anything who would you pick, and what would you ask? We have five suggestions.

In our most recent New York Islanders Patreon mailbag episode, one of our Patrons asked if we could ask one player a question who would we pick and what would we ask?

(PS: Thank you, Al, for the question.)

It was a great question, that I absolutely flubbed. I said I’d ask Josh Bailey how he dealt with being a third line player for all those years under Jack Capuano.

Why go and relive those days. I should have said: “What changed in 2015-16?” Because we all know it wasn’t playing next to John Tavares. The former captain isn’t here this season and Josh Bailey is still putting up numbers with 24 points in 30 games.

In an effort to redeem myself I’ve got five different question for five different current New York Islanders players.

Each player gets one question and I try to explain why that question needs to be answered. Of course, none of the players answered these questions (I doubt if they were actually asked they would answer).
