Islanders podcast: It’s the right time to trade with Buffalo Sabres

With so many changes to the front office, it’s a good time for the New York Islanders to call the Buffalo Sabres for a trade.

The Buffalo Sabres are going through a sort of restructure. Twenty-two staff members from GM Jason Botterill to amateur scouts were fired by the Pegulas just a few weeks ago. Usually, when a front office shuffle of that magnitude happens changes on the ice aren’t far away, and the New York Islanders should capitalize.

Matt and I spend a considerable amount of time going over what the Buffalo Sabres did exactly and how the Islanders can capitalize, as well as who they should target from the Sabres playing squad.

What Else Did We Cover?

  • New details and renderings for the Islanders arena at Belmont Park have been released by the team. Matt and I discuss what some of those details mean for the Islanders and for the fans.
  • A number of players around the league have tested positive for COVID-19 casting a bit of doubt over the NHL’s plan to transition to Phase 3 (training camps) on July 10. One player, in particular, had his diagnosis discussed without his consent, is that fair game in today’s media climate?
  • We have a reoccurring segment on the show where I ask Matt to guess an Isles player based on five clues. Think you can guess who the player is before Matt does?
  • We close the show out by going over things that you may have seen trending on Isles Twitter over the last week and a few things that may not have been trending but you should have seen regardless.
