The Eyes on Isles Podcast returns for episode number 168 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 have some breaking Islanders news to talk about thank God, as Ryan Pulock signed a deal to avoid arbitration with the team.

He inked a two-year $5 million AAV deal to stay with the team. We’ll get into what this contract means for the Islanders and Pulock. There’s another deal we have to keep an eye on and that’s Mathew Barzal.

After Pulock got a bridge deal do we see another one for Barzal also? We’ll take a look into what Barzal can get and what the AAV would look like.

Lastly, we’ll take an early look at the lines and what they can be for the 2021 season. Will there be any surprises from Barry Trotz and company this year?

Here’s what you can expect from episode 168:


Ryan Pulock Contract

Pulock got another bridge deal. Why did Lou Lamoriello go this route and what is the plan for the future with him?

Barzal next?

What’s the deal with Barzal? When does he get signed and what will that contract look like from the Isles?


What do we think the lineups will look like in 2021? We’ll get into the kids, the vets, if things should be moved around, and more.


Mitch is going to quiz me on someone who played 68 games in an Islanders sweater. This guessing game rarely goes well.


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