New York Islanders: Eyes on Isles Podcast Ep 107 Preview
The Eyes on Isles Podcast returns for episode number 107 as Matt and Mitch will discuss all things New York Islanders on and off the ice.
After a long summer, we’ve finally made it to September and hockey is back! Well, it’s kind of back. The New York Islanders had an informal skate yesterday, and their prospects are reporting to camp today in order to prep for the season.
In eight days, the veterans report so we will start by talking about our expectations from training camp. Do any of the youth have a shot at making the roster and will there be any surprise moves from the Islanders.
Additionally, with Andrew Ladd and Cal Clutterbuck skating again what does that mean for the Isles lineup. Due to their contract’s and the effectiveness of the fourth line we’d have to assume the Islanders play them both.
With the KHL season underway what’s the deal with Sorokin? We’ll talk about the likelihood of him coming over and the rules on what kind of contract he can get, which was a confusing Twitter discussion.
Here’s what you can expect from episode 107:
Training Camp Opens For Prospects
Training Camp is opening up for prospects today. What can we expect from the Isles youth and expectations for when the Vets report on the 12th.
Ladd and Clutterbuck impact
It looks like the Isles will get Andrew Ladd and Cal Clutterbuck sooner than originally expected. We’ll discuss what that means for the Isles lineup.
What’s the deal for Sorokin
Ilya Sorokin is someone who is expected to come over to the NHL after the season. We’ll breakdown the contract the Isles can give him.
In the social segment, we’ll answer questions and talk about the biggest stuff from Isles Twitter this past week.
