In a little over 24 hours, the New York Islanders start their season against the Carolina Hurricanes. After back-to-back trips to the Eastern Conference Final and losses to the eventual champion Tampa Bay Lightning, this team is hungry.
Both Mitch and I have high expectations for the Islanders in 2021-2022 and we will spend a majority of our episode talking about them today. We’ll go through key players for the team, the regular season, and where we think they finish.
The regular season got underway last night and there are some games on tonight as well so if you have FOMO, don’t worry we have you covered. We’ll also hit on the final roster and Mitch will update us on Islanders prospects in Down on the Farm as well.
Here’s what you can expect from episode 217:
2021-2022 Season Preview

Down on the Farm
With the rosters finalized, we can talk about where the key prospects ended up how they are doing and so much more. Also, Mitch spoke to Aatu Raty and will share his thoughts from their conversation.
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.
