The Eyes on Isles Podcast returns for episode number 103 as Matt and Mitch will discuss all things New York Islanders on and off the ice.
The New York Islanders are now 58 days away from the season opener and it can’t get here soon enough. Yes, I love summer as much as the next guy but I have the itch to talk about some Islanders on-ice situations.
This past week we saw Samuel Girard sign a seven-year $35 million extension. Girard is 21 years old and coming off a 27 point season. If that’s what Girard is getting what can we assume that Devon Toews gets next year?
We also saw Minnesota part ways with Paul Fenton after just one year. They are apparently looking for a GM with NHL experience, would they dare hire Garth Snow?
Finally, there’s been a comparison on social media with Josh Ho-Sang and Clint Frazier. How accurate is that comparison and will either of them make it in New York?
Here’s what you can expect from episode 103:
Girard contract impact on Devon Toews
With Devon Toews looking for a new deal after this year, what kind of contract can we expect him to get using the Samuel Girard contract as reference?
Garth to Minnesota
With Paul Fenton out would the Wild consider bringing in Garth Snow? Islanders fans wouldn’t recommend it.
Ho-Sang vs Frazier
How close is the Josh Ho-Sang to Clint Frazier comparison? When given all the details the comparison isn’t that far off.
In the social segment, we’ll answer questions and talk about the biggest stuff from Isles Twitter this past week.
