The Eyes on Isles Podcast returns for episode number 165 as Matt and Mitch will discuss all things New York Islanders on and off the ice.

Well, now we have some things to talk about. The Islanders elected to move Devon Toews in a trade and twitter had itself a meltdown. We’ll kick off episode 165 by talking about the trade heard around the world and if it was actually bad.

As a result, Nick Leddy will be asked to move back into the top-four. He should be able to handle the role just fine and we’ll get into what the plan is for the rest of the d-core.

The Isles also made some other depth moves this week. We’ll talk about the re-signings for the AHL and the likely addition of Corey Schneider and what that means for both Bridgeport and the Islanders.

Lastly, Elliotte Friedman had an interesting nugget in his 31 thoughts article. Apparently, the Isles asked the league to look into the Maple Leafs for tampering with the John Tavares situation. As we know, the Leafs were not charged.

Here’s what to expect from episode 165:

Topics

Devon Toews Trade

The Islanders received two second-round picks for Devon Toews. Was it a good or a bad trade and what does it mean for Nick Leddy?

Other depth signings

Corey Schneider, Austin Czarnik, Grant Hutton, and Mitch Vande Sompel were all brought in to round out the Bridgeport roster.

Tavares Tampering

Was what happened to John Tavares tampering? Matt and Mitch will discuss Friedman’s take from 31 thoughts.

Quiz

Mitch is going to quiz me on someone who played 65 games in an Islanders sweater. This guessing game rarely goes well.

Social

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