The Eyes on Isles Podcast returns for episode number 94 as Matt and Mitch will discuss all things New York Islanders on and off the ice.

It’s another week down in the New York Islanders offseason. Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final is tomorrow and at maximum, there are only three more game days for the 2018-2019 season which is rather depressing.

On the not so depressing side, it’s official the heart of rumor season. June is always a time for speculation and rumors when it comes to free agents and trades. One source had Erik Karlsson and Artemi Panarin linked to the Islanders.

Obviously, both are going to be in high demand but if the Islanders name is floating around out there that’s already a positive sign. Also this week we saw Lou Lamoriello give some surprising encouragement to a young prospect.

Lamoriello said that Noah Dobson has a real chance to make the team next year. Right now it doesn’t look like there’s a ton of room but that could change in the next few weeks.

We saw two Islanders sign deals this past week as well. Tanner Fritz on a two-way deal and prospect Arnaud Durandeau who signed his ELC at the last possible second.

Here’s what you can expect on this week’s podcast:

Topics

Links to Karlsson and Panarin

The Islanders are linked to Erik Karlsson? Well, why and where does he fit? Also, Artemi Panarin was linked to the Islanders which makes sense.

Noah Dobson and Lou Lamoriello

Lou had some high praise for Dobson this past week. Does Noah Dobson really have a chance to make the team out of camp next year?

Tanner Fritz and Arnaud Durandeau sign

A depth signing and a prospect signing isn’t all that exciting but we’ll go over the impact this will have on the Islanders for next year and beyond and why both are good things.

Players that didn’t work

The forgotten generation from 2010-2014. How many misses did the Islanders have over that time period and why waiting for all your prospects isn’t always a good thing.

Social

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

Next. What are the Isles plans for Dobson?
