For episode 242 of the Eyes on Isles Podcast, Matt and Mitch return to discuss the Islanders playoff chances. The team has played much better recently, winning four of their last five but it still feels like too little too late for this team.

We'll get into what has changed in the recent week, why they're playing better, and finally what the chances are with 12 games left. Next up, Kieffer Bellows.

Bellows has been so weird in 2022. He's played in just 35 games but at times he's looked like he was going to stick and then he goes right back to being a non factor again. So what's the future for Kieffer Bellows going forward?

Mitch will give us his update on the prospects and of course we will do the quiz as well. Here's what you can expect from episode 242:


Playoff Chances

Is there any hope left for this Islanders team? Mitch and I will go through the chances and if the Isles really have a chance or not.

Kieffer Bellows

What do the Islanders do with Kieffer Bellows in the future? Is he a building block piece or should they look to trade the pending RFA?

Down on the Farm

Mitch will update us on all things prospects in this segment. He's got his finger on the pulse for Islanders prospects and will share what he found out this week.


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.
