Since Jordan Eberle was the player selected from the Isles we will discuss the impact of losing him and then what’s next for the team including the draft and free agency coming up in just six days.

Also, Mitch has some information on Isles prospects that we will get into on Down on the Farm. Here’s what you can expect from episode 205 of a very busy Eyes on Isles Podcast:
