The Eyes on Isles Podcast returns for episode number 148 as Matt and Mitch will discuss all things New York Islanders on and off the ice.

It was a busy week in New York Islanders land, and we have a lot to get to on today’s episode of the podcast. First, the big news of the week, the arena drama with Nassau Coliseum. It appears like the Coli will remain closed unless someone wants to take over for Mikhail Prokhorov.

We also found out that the Isles will likely be headed to Vegas when the playoffs start. It seems a little weird to make the Eastern Conference teams go out to Las Vegas but if there’s no other choice, then I guess we’ll take it.

Also, Mitch did some investigative journalism when it comes to Ilya Sorokin. We’ll look at what he found out and talk about the cap implications if Sorokin signs an ELC for this year and then becomes an RFA.

Here’s what you can expect from episode 148:

Topics

Arena Drama

If the Isles can’t play in the Coliseum, they’ll be forced to go back to the Barclays Center for another year before Belmont is ready.

Isles to Vegas

Is it a disadvantage for teams from the East going all the way to Vegas to play? We’ll break that down and when we can expect games to play.

Sorokin update and free agency

If Sorokin can sign for this year, he’s going to have to be factored into the RFA list for 2020. It’s not going to be easy for Lou.

Quiz

Mitch is going to quiz me on someone who played 48 games as an Islander. As you’d expect it usually doesn’t go very well.

Social

In the social segment, we’ll answer questions and talk about the biggest stuff from Isles Twitter this past week.
