The Eyes on Isles Podcast returns for episode number 97 as Matt and Mitch will discuss all things New York Islanders on and off the ice.

This past week the NHL Draft overtook the NHL landscape. Trades were made, rumors were flying, and of course, prospects were drafted in the seven-round draft. The New York Islanders draft was certainly an interesting one.

In the first couple of rounds, they took some players that were deemed surprise picks based on where they were selected. Due to past trades, the Isles had just five picks (missing picks in rounds three and four).

Also, we’ve reached the point where free agents can talk to other teams which is leaving Islanders fans nervous with Robin Lehner and Anders Lee still unsigned. Robin Lehner has said that he doesn’t want to talk to other teams while Anders Lee has received interest from the Chicago Blackhawks.

While the Islanders worry about Lee and Lehner the Metropolitan Division has vastly improved. The Rangers and Devils both won big during the draft weekend and even the Flyers are out making moves.

Here’s what you can expect from episode 97:

Topics

Draft

The Islanders shocked everyone with their first round pick and didn’t go center until round five. Is this a bad thing?

Lee and Lehner

What are the chances Lee and Lehner come back? Is it time to panic yet and if both go then where do the New York Islanders turn?

Metro Getting Better

With the Rangers, Devils, and Flyers improving is it time for the Islanders to start to worry?
