The Eyes on Isles Podcast returns for episode number 108 as Matt and Mitch will discuss all things New York Islanders on and off the ice.
Today is always a weird day, and if you’re a New Yorker especially you probably feel the exact same way that I do. The most therapeutic thing for me is sports, so since the anniversary of this awful tragedy also falls on a podcast day we’ll try to get through this day the best way we know how, talking New York Islanders hockey with you.
There’s a rumor floating around the internet about the Nassau Coliseum and Barclays Center split. It’s set for a 50/50 split at the moment but that could get bumped up to 75/25 in favor of the Nassau Coliseum.
Training camp officially begins tomorrow. We’ve already had some storylines we have to talk about such as Simon Holmstrom’s injury and the lineup for the rooks against the Philadelphia Flyers.
In the standings preview, the Isles continually get placed in sixth place. That’s far too low and we’ll discuss where we think they should be put in the rankings.
Here’s what you can expect from episode 108:
More games at Nassau?
If the rumors are true is it a good thing for the Islanders to play more of their schedule at Nassau and could they move the playoffs there?
The biggest storylines heading into camp, the lineup in the rookie game against Philly, and Simon Holmstrom is hurt again.

Where the Isles project to finish in the standings and why 6th is far too low.
2008 Draft Quiz
Mitch and I have gotten a kick out of doing these quizzes. Since it’s episode 108 we will take someone from the 2008 draft class for the trivia segment.
In the social segment, we’ll answer questions and talk about the biggest stuff from Isles Twitter this past week.
