With no other major sport, the NHL and specifically the New York Islanders have a big opportunity.

The MLB can’t get out of its own way in their attempt to get the season started. The NBA seems to be on track but it also seems that that promising situation could change at any moment. Leaving a huge opportunity for the NHL and by extension the New York Islanders.

With the North American sports landscape clear for the taking the Islanders can make some big headway into growing this fanbase. As the Islanders head to Belmont this is the perfect opportunity to grow to swell our numbers.

What’s the Pod About

Look, let’s be honest. The New York Islanders don’t have the largest fanbase in the NHL, but that always changes when the Isles make the playoffs. Thousands of fans flock to the Isles when the post-season rolls around.

And that’s typically at a time when baseball is a few months into their season and when basketball is going through their own playoffs. But with both of those seemingly out of the picture for the time being, the NHL has the stage to themselves.

Sitting up on that stage increases the number of eyeballs and the number of fans they can bring to the table. Matt and I go over the opportunity in front of the New York Islanders and the NHL.
