The Eyes on Isles Podcast returns for episode number 151 as Matt and Mitch will discuss all things New York Islanders on and off the ice.

Another week down as the inch towards hockey returning gets that much closer. This week on the Eyes on Isles Podcast we’re going to begin by getting into the compliance buyouts, or lack thereof, and explain the impact on the Islanders.

We’ll also take a look at the new CBA and how it connects to the Isles and impacts their future going forward. I’m sure we’ll talk about the good news with Ilya Sorokin at this point as well when we get to the CBA.

Brock Nelson says going 3-0 against the Panthers in the regular season doesn’t mean anything now. Is he right, or do the Isles have an advantage?

Here’s what you can expect from episode 151:


No Compliance Buyouts

There will be no buyouts to stay under the cap so does that mean the Isles are going to have to rely on ELC’s for 2020-2021?


Discussing the CBA and how it impacts the Islanders. Ilya Sorokin is able to sign for this year so we’ll discuss the impact that has on the Isles as well going into next season.

Isles vs Panthers history

Brock Nelson says it doesn’t matter that the Isles swept the Panthers in the regular season, is that true?


Mitch is going to quiz me on someone who played 51 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.
