The Eyes on Isles Podcast returns for episode number 149 as Matt and Mitch will discuss all things New York Islanders on and off the ice.

We’re back for another episode of the Eyes On Isles Podcast. This week we’ll be getting into the Belmont Park Arena. We got a new look at the renderings of the new Islanders digs and got some details on the specifics on the arena.

Also, we’ll get into the drama going on in Buffalo. The Sabres fired everybody and look headed for a rebuild. Is there anyone on that roster that is worth a look? Mitch and I will break that down in detail.

Lastly, Auston Matthews tested positive for Corona. How is that going to impact the NHL’s return to play and is this something that we’re going to expect going forward?

Here’s what you can expect on episode 149:


Belmont News

We’ll go over the new renderings and talk about some of the details that were released.

Taking Advantage of Buffalo

Buffalo is a dumpster fire right now, can the Isles pull Sam Reinhart from the Sabres?

Auston Matthews 

Matthews was diagnosed with COVID-19. What kind of impact will that have on the NHL’s plan and is this only the beginning?


Mitch is going to quiz me on someone who played 49 games as an Islander. As you’d expect it usually doesn’t go very well.


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