The Eyes on Isles Podcast returns for episode number 80 as Matt and Mitch will discuss all things New York Islanders on and off the ice.
Another week has come and gone and we’re back and ready to talk some New York Islanders hockey. I will not be on the show tonight, but Mitch will have you covered with everything Islanders this past week.
The biggest story this week was the trade deadline. Mitch will have his reaction to the Islanders staying put and if they’re going to be able to make some noise come playoff time with the roster they have now.
Also, Devon Toews put himself on a nice little five-game point streak. It was snapped last night, but the kid has been fantastic in the last couple of weeks with seven points in the last eight games.
On the power play, Ryan Pulock has been a huge help for the Islanders. Over the past 10 games, the power play unit has been much improved and Pulock and Devon Toews are huge reasons why that is.
The Islanders also made a surprise signing this week. They gave a contract to Dennis Seidenberg who was on a PTO since the start of the season. He adds depth but was this move completely necessary?
Here’s what you can expect from tonight’s episode:
The Islanders stayed put at the deadline. Mitch will give a breakdown of what happened on Monday and if it was for better or worse for the franchise.
Toews point streak
When Devon Toews was called up did anyone think he would be this good this quickly? Toews has proved he belonged and recently went on a nice five-game point streak.
Ryan Pulock: Power Play Whisperer
Pulock has begun to hit the net on the power play. His impact has been phenomenal on the man advantage and should be getting a bigger role.
Dennis Seidenberg depth signing
The Isles gave Dennis Seidenberg a contract. Was it worth it and was he deserving of it?
In the social segment, we’ll answer questions and talk about the biggest stuff from Isles Twitter this past week.
