Islanders Podcast Preview: More ‘Signings’ & Roster Depth
By Matt O'Leary
We’re back (one day later than usual) to continue to talk about the New York Islanders offseason. Since we’ve last spoke, it sounds like there are more “signings” in the bag for the Isles even though they haven’t been announced officially.
Multiple reports suggest that Casey Cizikas is back on a long-term deal, Travis Zajac is returning, as well as Michael Dal Colle and Anatolii Golyshev too. We’ll get into the impact of those deals and where we can expect them to play.
Next up, we have to talk about the extras. We know how many forward’s the Islanders have, now it’s time to discuss who will be the odd men out. Mitch will talk through his depth chart 1.0 and we’ll try to see where all these players fit in.
Lastly, Mitch has some updates for Down on the Farm this week. He’ll update us on what’s going on in the Islanders system and who has performed well. Heck, I’ll try to get in some more Aatu Raty talk too.
Here’s what you should expect from episode 207:
Mitch and I will get into the other rumored signings, why nothing has been officially announced, and what to expect from these dudes.
What will the scratchpad look like for the Islanders and who is going to get buried in the AHL.
Down on the Farm
Mitch will update us on the latest Islanders prospects news and what he’s hearing from around the world. As the frontman of the Aatu Raty Fanclub, I’ll also make sure to find out some more info on him too.
On the quiz, Mitch will pick a random player in Islanders history and I have to try to guess who that player is based on five clues. It’s usually a blast.
In the social segment, we’ll answer questions and talk about the biggest stuff from Isles Twitter this past week.
