Islanders Podcast Preview: Training Camp & Defense Additions
By Matt O'Leary
We’re back with episode 214 of the Eyes on Isles Podcast and Islanders hockey is also back! Well, kind of. Players arrived for media day today, and by the time we speak next week, there will be preseason to talk about.
We’ll start today’s episode by talking about the Erik Gustafsson PTO and the signing of Zdeno Chara. We have a pretty good idea of what the team will look like on the d-core so we’ll talk through that to start.
Next up, the training camp roster. Mitch and I will go through and talk about who are people to keep an eye on and if there are any competitions that matter in camp this year.
Mitch will share his prospect updates on Down on the Farm, and of course, we will have our quiz and social segments too. Here’s what to expect from episode 214:
Chara signing and the blue line
Zdeno Chara finally signed bringing his Islanders career full circle. We’ll talk through expectations and the blue line in general.
Training Camp roster
What to make of the training camp roster. Will there be any surprises and are there any jobs truly up for grabs right now?
Down on the Farm
Updates on prospects from around the world. Mitch will share his findings and conversations with Isles prospects.
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.
