It’s Wednesday, you know what that means! The Eyes on Isles podcast is back with another episode. This week, we’ll cover Leo Komarov leaving the Islanders to go back to the KHL to play with SKA to get us started.
This news came out of nowhere and was a surprise to many but at the end of the day, if Leo would rather go to the KHL than to the AHL, I get it and respect his decision. Also, we will get into the Metropolitan Division. The Metro is as competitive as ever and we’ll discuss what that means for this team.
Also, Mitch and I want to talk some UBS Arena. It’s important to talk about how much the Islanders did to try to make this the perfect building. Last but certainly not least, Mitch will have a prospect update for us.
Here’s what you can expect from episode 221:
Uncle Leo is likely headed to the KHL. We will discuss his time with the Isles, what it means for the cap, and so on.
Every year the Metro is the best division in the league. We’ll discuss who is doing what and what it means for the team.
Offside Tavern is returning to UBS Arena and the Islanders have done a ton of other things to make this place special.
Down on the Farm
Mitch will share his findings from conversations with Islanders 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.
