Like us, the New York Islanders are in quarantine. Find out who they would like to be quarantined with and who they wouldn’t want to be with.
By week three of quarantine, it’s only natural to start bickering with whoever you are with. Maybe it’s family, maybe a significant other, or perhaps you’re arguing with your pet because you haven’t had human contact in nearly a month.
Anyway, right now the only thing we can do to combat this virus is to keep our distance and stay isolated. Mollie Walker of the New York Post checked in with some Islanders to see who they would and wouldn’t want to quarantine with.
First up was Jordan Eberle and he would like to be quarantined with Anders Lee. The logic behind it makes sense, Eberle and Lee are both new dads so they’ve been up late and it’s safe to assume the linemates are checking in during late-night feedings.
Eberle has no interest in quarantining with his other linemate though. Eberle states that he’d probably want to punch him out by the end of it. A bored Mat Barzal must be an irritating Mat Barzal it seems.
Johnny Boychuk would like to quarantine with Josh Bailey or Casey Cizikas because he knows that they would work out and stay in shape. While probably a wise thing to do, I would probably choose the teammate who had the best snacks.
Boychuk also mentions Ross Johnston, if he was doing stuff around the house. Perhaps Ross is a bit of a handyman? I can see it.
For the second time in a row, Mat Barzal made the list for who he didn’t want to quarantine with. Boychuk’s reasoning was because he wasn’t sure if Barzy knew how to cook or clean. While I don’t know Barzal personally, I wouldn’t be shocked if that were true.
Heck even the newcomer, JG Pageau chimed in to Mollie. Pageau said he’d pick Boychuk because he kind of knows him from the WJC. Poor JG, he’s like the new kid who doesn’t know what lunch table to sit at. That one felt a little too close to home.
Pageau gave a pretty funny answer for who he doesn’t want to live with. He wants no part of the Eberle, Bailey, or Lee quarantine because he doesn’t want to babysit. I feel that one, JG.

If I had my choice, I would be living it up with Barzal and Beauvillier. We’d probably stay up late playing Call of Duty and eating junk food. I’d want to avoid the Seidenberg/Dobson house. Did you see Dobson’s video today? He looked like a hostage, poor kid.
