"Goals-against nine, thirty, two save percentage. He's got a six and one record. You could say the same thing about this guy everyone complained we wanted Robin Leonard. Heck. I wanted Robin letter also because he was just a character guy lamour went out and he addressed in need at goal. We also are going to be expecting the white whale finally, which I'm sure. Some of the other guys have talked about with Ilia Sarokin. Finally being in North America signing his contract signing an extension. So he is going to be here next year and he is going to backstop Varlamov at least for the short term and. I'm liking what I'm seeing at him. He's been sound. He must have been working on his glove side because we didn't see him throw those gloves up like we did earlier this year and fan at at at a poker bad angles. He's really really really positionally sound he has had quick motions side to side the islanders have allowed him to see through traffic in ways that I haven't seen them do for a goaltender in a long time. So whatever this little training camp they. Managed to squeeze in here and in the bubble and in previous to the bubble. I'm telling you Barry. Trots has this team just firing on all cylinders PK, Sue ben said last night that he could see the New York islanders as a gift to the Stanley Cup final. And I know there's some tough teams out there that'd be played. The receding situation is a little scary because the islanders will go in as a higher seed I suppose we never know who are going to face off against but. The way they're playing right now. If the powerplay starts clicking and they can. Stay. Out of the box or at least kill off penalties. The way that they have been I think the islanders can can make some noise here and continue to do damage I know I? I'm loving it I really am. So I guess ultimately something else that I I've been wanting to do is. I'm going to continue to podcasts here during the playoffs it, it might be spotty it might not be very long ones like this one but I want to hear from you guys reach out to me on twitter, reach out to me through the facebook page or the instagram or or wherever. Let me know how you guys are liking the playoffs what you could maybe want changed in this situation or how you're enjoying it. I saw a couple of tweets of people with outdoor. TV's hanging out in the pool having a couple of cocktails. Nat is cool. I never once expected to be watching hockey in August I never once expected to see a playoff game on my birthday. Having an August birthday has traditionally been pretty crappy. As far as. Getting things in in in doing things having summer birthdays obviously cool. Because I was always home could always go to the beach things like that. But we missed out on cupcakes all late birthday guys cupcakes at school and everything else. So this is like a little bit of payback I think for for situations like that. Plus Leo Leo is like the Sun I, get it. I love the beach I really do. But let me know what can the NHL be doing differently what are they doing really well. Reach out to me on twitter at aisles blogger at the show is twitter faithful aisles. What do you WanNa talk about you know moving forward as well. What are some some things that you want me to? Kind of look into or talk about. Sh- I don't know. Sometimes I don't know what the Heck I'm doing. So as we wrap up and we will be wrapping up. I wanted to just send a big. Thank you out to everyone who listens regularly There hasn't been an episode as we keep talking about and while but we did surpass twenty thousand downloads total since I started the podcast which has been awesome. you're still consuming the heck out of the older episodes. It's it. It seems during the playoffs you know everyone's kind of trying to catch up or even during quarantine. So that's been really cool. I do have some exciting news that I will probably drop in the next. with S-, sort of sponsorship thing kind of worked itself out here over the last couple of days randomly So we'll talk about that and You know what can I do better? This is a little different way for me to do this because only because I've just been bottled up for. So long now, I'll get back into the the way. I've typically put out an episode in the past in the format and everything so. This is just a way to get back in touch little summer podcasting here and Hopefully the next time we speak. It'll be for sweep knock on wood not the jinx anything..

"The Washington, capitals, Forum on Jeff Boards I popped into the sub. Read it. Over there on read it and they are absolutely tearing each other apart is fans they're tearing the team apart they're tearing the coach apart the memes over there. Let me tell you the mean game is strong. But they're not wrong. It's kind of like a scary thing when your team. Struggles the way that they do and the islanders do that two teams they've done that teams all last season they've done it for stretches this season granted you know it was only sixty six or sixty two games or something like that, and we saw the island struggle at times this season as well. They did play the capitals rather well, which was good too good to see and good to know going into this they've smothered ovechkin. There was a certain period of the game today where I didn't even notice Ovechkin I was GonNa tweet it and I didn't want to jinx anything but until. Pelicans somebody hit him pretty hard along the boards I hadn't even noticed that of education was playing today. And that's not good for the capitals they they've got a lot of struggles going on and it seems that the islanders are exploiting these struggles and and maybe they just didn't show up to the bubble really ready to play I. Didn't really follow what they did in the play in round very close. Obviously, I didn't really care about it. It was kind of a weird thing. I was more just focused on the islanders making it to the actual playoffs here in in round one. So they here they're here they've showed up and show up they have we have. Not had the depth. On, this team like this in a long time you know and. In episode, Forty Four, we spoke about how they got Green for defensive depth because Pelicans was out chuck was struggling who who else was hurt their at at you know from time to time at. Long I don't even really remember to be honest with you, but we have this defensive depth that. Boy Chuck being hurt and out with a concussion. Hasn't really affected them the way that it would have had. They had not picked up green or you know they would've had to play Dopson and and maybe give him sheltered minutes and have a shorter defensive. Bench than they normally would. But you can throw these guys out there. You Got Green and letty pool lock and Pelican it's it's been fantastic. Letty has looked really really good. Is it any coincidence that the beard is back I? Think not I think that he gains all of his. Offensive and skating power from his beard because when it's not, there isn't really look like the same player I mean that's probably just stupid observation An- completely untrue one but I'm going to stick with it. Bailey. Bow Villa. Barzel who lock Nelson Everley Tapes Patio Lee letty all these guys on fire. Then you have Varlamov you noticed I settle those names correctly right for the naysayers. Maybe you can. You know correct some of the reviews where I mispronounced names from time to time I'm sure I will still continue to do that but this is a new Megan Ford I. AM forty I've learned a couple of things we'll see what happens but Bailey one goal six assists plus six. Ovilla four goals three assists plus three. Those two guys in particular some of the talking heads up there in Canada have been saying where the heck did these guys come from. I mean, we see them every day. We know that these guys can bring it. I know there's a lot of Bailey haters we've talked about this at length from time to time plus with some of the guests that come on but those two guys have been absolutely dynamite. From one series to the next and Bo. That boy he's out there he is a spark plug. Always love it. Barzel. was really kicking him today seemed he didn't really WANNA drive to the front of the net, but he saved the best for last. And in overtime that power move to go outside turn up the angle go right to the dirty area to get that back in pass a Hopi. Hello. Hero. barbies he's better when we tell you an overtime hero for him I'm not sure if that was his first of his career he. Kind of did it last year I don't really remember I'm sure you guys will be quick to point that out to me. But to excuse me two goals four sis- plus six been playing very well. Kulak one goal five, six plus three, you're going to start to see a pattern Nelson. Three goals three assists plus five Nelson has gone hard to the net game in game out it's the player we've won it from him. It's why we you know coined Brock Tober and broke ember and all these other things he now doing what he's done. When we love him consistently through the playoffs and that is a huge thing. Abberley another guy we kinda said, maybe the contract was a little too long last year he really showed up in that Pittsburgh series. He's doing it again folks three goals two assists plus five. Taves. Every time he has the puck on his stick magic happens. He's got a great I pass out of his own. He loves to be the QB they're close to the Blue Line on the powerplay. Gets the PUCK deep. Get pucks deep. And he's got four SIS-, plus five patio. We knew that this guy was billed as a playoff performer he he did fantastic up in. Ottawa. He singlehandedly got them. You know to to progress pretty far in the Stanley Cup playoffs that one season for them he's got three goals to assist plus five the other night he was like a like thirteen or fourteen for seventeen at the face off that I'm not sure what his stats were in game three today but he is everything as described. He is agitator on the ice he could win of offensive zone draws defensive zone draws he can do it all he. Can score he can pass he can muck it up a little bit what about the David and Goliath little incident with Brian Boyle against the panthers he sat there. He goaded him into a response and then he made him flinch here's this little five foot nothing guy with huge Brian Boyle and boyle flinches and then he laughs and skates away was hysterical and I love it. He's got the heart of a lion. He's got great hands. He can skate and he is on the New York islanders for six more years. After this season, we kinda bitch and Moan and Groan. What Lou Lamoriello was doing. But here we are couple months later one hundred and seventy three days really. You know for me and we are seeing. Dividends we really are honors Lee. That little hit the other day that. Gained all the ire from the capital's you know what? It's doing. Good things they are going after him hard. He's obviously a marked man. He's drawn a couple of penalties. He's gotten into a couple of scraps. So yes, he's answered the bell in way and it's it's done really well, three goals five assists like I just said if I didn't say I'm sorry if I repeated myself. Love what he did today he was in the right spot and that dirty area again tapped his stick pellet. The birthday boy finds him through traffic for the slap pass and little redirect and what what are you going say about that I did not expect. These type A goals against the capitals I really didn't I. Their. Gritty. Hard working goals. They've had some finesse to the power play is like over eight hundred. But Hey, that's fine. There are twenty five percent against the cats last round and. Different teams the capitals have a fantastic penalty kill they go out there they just prevent. Zone passes and slot passes in the islanders can break through from time to time. We did see a power play goal the other night and it will happen you know they. They will start to take chances, and as long as they're generating I don't care. It's when they pass around the perimeter and don't shoot or bars eldest skate circles through zone. I. Just lose my patience with stuff like that get pucks to the net like the same play the other night when they had that four minute for check in hemmed the capitals in their zone which I tweeted rumor has it. They're still hemmed in their own to to this date. The they might be forever But pucks in deep pucks to the front of the net went off clutter bucks glove in in. That's all takes. Shoot at the net, you never know what's going to happen. They teach us at from Day One in Hockey from pee wee all the way up to high school and college and beyond. So Nicoletti also had a goal the other night on on the power play the only power play goal against while we're on that subject and plus seven he's looked great. He's had a bunch of shots. He's active. He is doing his part defensively they're all blocking shots. Matt Martin on one shift tonight blocked shot with each foot. That's just. Everyone, they're all doing. Their thing taken hits the make plays it's it's really really good to see Varlamov one, point seven, one,.

"And this is episode number forty, five of the aisles faithful podcasts number forty five. We have not spoken in over one hundred and seventy three days not because they didn't want to.

Obviously aside from the Siphon that and the shutdown I went to Florida in. March, prior to everything shutting down. So I missed a couple of games there than the League shutdown we got home job shut down I was home with the kids doing projects this and that you if you follow me on twitter you Kinda knew everything that going on so. The last time we spoke. Was To talk about Jj Patio and the trade deadline and everything there. Obviously, things have progressed to that point with the Round Robin for the plan and the islanders beating the Florida. Panthers, which was amazing. They played fantastic. Panthers didn't have a lot of fight. So. We move into this round of the playoffs against the Washington capitals a team that was Kinda. Scary Obviously, we're coming off a win this afternoon. Matthew Barzel scores in overtime somehow manages to get past his defenders without even really being noticed. By the time they turn to get him. He was already cutting into the center of the ice and we know he scored on the back end. I cannot begin to really tell you how crazy this always in. The Path that we have taken to get here as fans. The, NHL The the systems they put in place with the bubble cities. The way that they've covered the stands in. TORONTO. So. You don't see the seats, the the extra screens they've really done a very good job production wise and. I'll be back and forth here and we'll get back into hockey in a minute I-. I'm besides myself. Really it's. This is a tough way to watch hockey you I was torn with whether I. wanted to see the players put themselves at risk. There were a couple of players at debt opted out You know like our boy Roman Hammer listen to me. Hamrlik. And As of this week to to ask in Boston crazy situation there in the middle of the playoffs, but you gotta do what's right for your family I guess, right. I'm sure if my kids were younger and I wanna be apart from them for a couple of months either saw you know, no, no real blame there. You got some bonehead people making comments of it like Millbury in some of the other. Analysts out there. So that's another story too but it's crazy that we've we've been forced to watch hockey in this fashion. And I. Kind of like it. It's crazy with the the crowd noise pumped in there. you hear more things going on the ice, which is always good. You know I'm a big fan of the game and as you know I, do play the game myself. So it's nice to hear those things to. The delay. The. Announcers have to deal with the play by play guys in Brandenburg and Butch TV broadcast. You know they're seeing the live feed because where we're seeing a tape delay. In case God forbid you hear some foul language off, you know some of the players right along the ice there. Again, it's part of the game I I would pay to hear that feed. So that, even for them for Brendon call the game, the way he does in MSG aisles on MSG on twitter has been posting some behind the scenes stuff about his calls and it's been fantastic. You see the excitement you see him in his element with a big smile you know like I I know he might not exactly be a fan of the team, but he does cover the team. He does put his energy and everything behind it and it's fantastic to see and. All these little cool things like I like I keep saying everybody is doing good things to kind of make the broadcast special and I'm enjoying it. I'm enjoying the excitement of you know earlier this week was my fortieth birthday I. Thank everybody that reached out to me via DM in my time line through facebook I was just blown away by by all the by all the praise in the well wishes and happy birthdays and. So I I missed the game one Because we were on the beach and my cousin. talked me into staying and it would have been the first game I got to Actually Watch on TV aside from that one Saturday game against Florida last week. I had to watch on my phone at work for the first series air against. Florida. So I I really wanted to be able to just sit down like a human being and enjoy game on my birthday but we listened a little bit on the radio play by play. We got some updates through everybody on twitter and it was honestly fund to celebrate with my cousin my wife and and everybody on the beach while we ate dinner. So it was it was a pretty cool feeling but these last two games. I have never been this excited and you know it's A couple of you said on twitter you know and I said earlier I know. It's hard to be excited because there's no fans in the building but. I live through the energy of the players I lived through the energy of players when I play with them I lived through them when I covered the team through all the downtrodden years to on my blog. And I just I know from first hand experience those guys how they feel and act in the room after a big win. And those guys are just going to bring it every single night they're gonNA go back to their room tonight. They might have a couple of cooley POPs I don't know. No. No wrong. Doing they're they're going to enjoy and celebrate. You know how they can. They are going to stick to business. They're going to continue to play. Ping Pong. How awesome was that? Jj Patio. The new guy comes out of the singles little tournament that they had going on up there in the bubble champion. If you haven't seen the video of his entrance, go see it. It's a sight to behold. Let me tell you. And I'm rambling because it's been. So long here that we haven't really spoken and I'm excited I've wanted to sit down and do this I really wanted to give it the time that it deserved and I haven't really been able to because it been a busy week with my birthday and again I'm here right now we're GonNa try to recap things a little bit I. Don't WanNa get long winded because like. I don't have a crazy amount of time here tonight, but I wanted to get something out with my excitement with some stats just. Just, to get stuff out this, he had something to listen to tomorrow on your way to work or if you're stuck working from home or. However, you want to consume it. It's up to you. Islanders are up three nothing in a series. I I read a tweet earlier that this is the eleventh time since they came into the league that has happened. And if I was a good. A good podcast I have that piece of information handy. But I don't. So. Yeah. Through the magic of editing I now have it. The New York islanders own a three nothing lead in a best of seven Stanley Cup playoff series for the eleventh time in franchise history. New York has won each of the ten previous series including seven sweeps. So that's courtesy of the NFL's website. or at least their twitter account, the PR count sets good to know and. I don't WANNA get too far ahead of ourselves I felt this way through the whole Pittsburgh series last year when they swept them in four games. The capitals are a dangerous team obviously haven't looked extremely dangerous, but during this first round. Rather pedestrian at times, which is Kinda strange I, I've I've popped into.

"Tom McKee at six underscore aisles. The biggest issue with this team all year has been the inability to roll four lines up front. This trade will allow them to finally do that when healthy which should greatly help the end of the year and into the playoffs which is a great point something. I had spoken about a couple of minutes ago. Justin Simon at College Cross agree although I was excited about Parisi with bars L. Even though I know he is past his prime etc but I was excited about that veteran leaner leadership. He would've brought you know and you could. You could say this too. There's a lot of veterans on this team. Whether or not you like it or not. Josh Bailey veteran Brock Nelson veteran. The new have J. G. Patio. Now you could say. He's a veteran at this point Andres Lee veteran you. Look at the goaltending situation. Thomas Grace veteran Varlamov veteran who else we got. Johnny Boy Chuck Andy Green you can go on and on a lot of veterans so it would have been another guy would have been someone who knows obviously Lula Morello very well and again. We're going to see what happens with that moving forward. It's obviously as a story that we're going to be watching very closely Then you got at scone. Egg Sal kind of glare auto. At first I was like yes Parisi but after I thought about it. Who Spot would he have taken? No thanks and those are the type of things really when I look to see what everybody else is thinking. It's always a mixed bag of emotions and I. I liked that I. I like going on the different message boards. I like going on read it. I liked to poke my my nose so to speak in into some of the conversations and I might say some stuff time to Tuck from time to time where you guys kind of question me and I had said something today even where it I had said you know now that we got Tasio I like the green trade even more and I didn't want to seem that I didn't like the Green Trade on. Its own you know and I was called out for that and I don't mind that I like to. I like to talk different avenues to kind of get involved in in different ways. Just another thing. I'm a fan at heart and I don't mind being called out I. I can back up certain things I I don't really take it to heart all that much or or to personally So it's great to see all the different reactions. You know that kind of role in then you have. David Strauss at Ari player lead is up on the roster and bellows is down so it would have been that third line wing over Michael Dell Com- RAV assuming that clutter wasn't included in one of those later to weren't on the fourth line Continue on here. People talking back and Forth Kevin Cosgrove at K. Cosmo ninety four the better today than they were yesterday. Bottomline Zach agrees which is at Zachary. Seven eight nine zero zero Let's see who else here. Joey Mena Cini at Mendocino. Joey agree I do think the parise thing will be revisited. I'll signed all their RFA's and Martin get Sarokin over. And I don't know if any big name free agent top six wants to come. I obviously again. That's another thing. We didn't really talk about Thomas. Greis is going to be an unrestricted free agent. Do they sign him to a one year deal or two year deal?.

"The Isles Vehicle podcast with your host Michael Shirley Line Alo- and welcome back to the Isles faithful podcast. It has been a minute you can say. I think I might have said that the last time we did this a little bit of a gap year between episodes as you know I had had a busy holiday like the rest of you was home with the kids. Did a bunch of stuff with them had a good time for Christmas. They all enjoyed everything. They're having some good times with families going back and forth and then in the middle of all that or after I should say started a new job so I I kinda trying to get caught up there and get get acclimated and it's it's been great Working with some fantastic new people a lot closer to home So just all settled in there now. So which is why we're we're here. I've said over the last couple of weeks that I've wanted get an episode out and I said I was going going to and then something else came up and regardless I'm here now that's what's important Today is January twenty six twenty twenty two new decade. Were into something new here. Something New and exciting twenty twenty. I am going to be forty this year. I can't believe it. That's just amazing. Anyway this is episode so number forty two and I am your host as always Michael Sherline. So would've what are we GONNA get ourselves into today if you follow me on twitter at Aisles Blogger Auger. I have been complaining nonstop about the same type things. I guess everybody else has really been complaining about Nazi. The aisles have been rather rather pedestrian as of late What I mean by that is since the amazing stretch of games that they had earlier in the season and The aisles were twenty seven in to the last time we spoke there now. Twenty nine fifteen and five so they still have a winning record. Haven't really played all that great. So it's a difference of nine eight and three. They're they're over five hundred which is good Nica break that down even further and say maybe they aren't five hundred over the last ten or so games. I'm not one hundred percent. Sure I did write five pages of notes here. But that's not one of the things. Of course I looked up. Unfortunately you don't I got all this paper right here. So what are we gonNA do over those twenty games. The owls have obviously been pretty pedestrian as we spoke about they've struggled in all areas Ali League against some lesser teams with lower standings in them lower in the in the standings And there's been some blowout losses Some legals against some power goals against late. I'm looking at you dark persad against your former team. No less which again could go either way. I didn't necessarily think it was a penalty I said said on twitter when guys head goes low and his feet go over his head. It's an embellishment in you know. We'll get into that in a little while as well So we got some non calls. That still continue here and we'll get into that as well. I Al- Zor currently third in the metro but just three points from not not being in a playoff spot at all Columbus one point back Carolina to in Philly three respectively. And this is going into the last game last week before the all-star break the gals are also now that the all-star break is over are going into their CBA mandated by week so we won't see another game here until February first day before super bowl which is next weekend so we have a bunch of days to sit in mill about in wonder what's going to happen on the other end of the spectrum. They are four points back of Pittsburgh who just can't seem to lose no matter. How many injuries they they have their seven back Boston in eight back of first place? Washington to the East is very tight. So if you do the quick math there there's only think eleven points between first and the last wildcard spot maybe a little more at parody for you. That's the new. NHL That's what they want. It is exciting. I love hockey. Okay I love this time of year. Granted him a little stress about a couple of different things. But you know the aisles did manage to bank all those points earlier in the year so they were riding on that it and we'll see what happens during the twenty games. The aisles have scored sixty goals in allowed sixty two so for the rest of this or for that season to this point. The goal differential is plus eleven. I don't know exactly where they were last year at this point I know it's probably a little worse because the goaltending while well it has been good. Defensively the aisles have struggled They've also struggled offensively as well so that. That number is a little tighter than maybe we have wanted edited and we saw last year so I tweeted during this stretch of poor play that the leading score is since Christmas had had five points each and that was bars Elson. It's improved a little bit and I'm GonNa go through some numbers here. Bear with me. I know it can be a little boring when I read stats. But it's it's pretty important for the whole picture So now I'm going back to the twenty seventh of December which is when I had tweeted that out On the fourteenth of January that you know the leading to scores Air Bars L. Nelson with five points so over this last A bunch of games Barzel has ten points. One goal and nine assists Nelson seven goals three assists Bailey. Eight points three goals. Five six Lee has seven points. Five goals two assists Bo. Villa has seven points. Three goals IOS four cysts broussard. Only has four cysts everyday who struggled with the combat from the injuries kind of turned it on a little bit. He has seven points. four-goal street assists. Now you got a bunch of defenseman here who are kind of outscoring most of the forwards which is kind of funny but Ryan polack has six points points. One goal five assists DEVANTE has five points one goal for cysts let has forced cysts. Zeke's has five goals Mayfield. Three three points one goal two assists boy Chuck Scott No points during that stretch. Calmer off you know. And he has played less games and some of the rest of the forwards here. Yes six points in in those games. One goal five assists. He's really looked very good. especially with clutter buck out Surprised he's playing his as well as he has. But I mean that's a veteran guy right. They're going to do whatever berry tells them. The do dow coal again played less games history assists Martin. He was out a little bit with injury. Scott three points one goal and two assists coup knuckle and now he has a bunch of less games played. He was injured there for awhile. He's come on pretty strong as as of late as well. Six points three goals three assists dopson three points. He's only played about eight games or so over the stretch here. He's scored toward his. NHL is first goal in the NHL. And he's got three points that one goal and two assists and Johnston. He's only played a bunch of games names as well but two points one goal cysts. So it's thirty eight goals thirty eight you know. And that's my math is right. It's it's hard to you know Kinda try to weed through all the different game notes and all the stats on the NFL website. But by my count. Thirty eight goals at just unacceptable You can't can't continue to win these one goal games and We're GONNA talk about exactly how they can remedy that here. Moving forward powerplays been pretty stagnant. The last first few games before the break here they did score a couple of power play goals which is good to see but they they keep deferring the puck back to the point Very little action down loan one in front the ones that they have been successful. They've moved the puck through the slot area and down low or even behind the net But they always seem that just defer back to the point and they let these point shots go that they're shooting right into blocked. Lanes shots are blocked causing turnovers. And how many times do do you hear Brendan and Bucci say that the puck goes high and door wide. I mean if you're a betting man you could probably venture to say that ninety nine percent of the shots they take they take any at all going to be blocked and that's just either trying too hard or you know being a little too slow on their decision making But I WANNA see that improve here when they come back from the break. We are a month from the trade deadline. Basically and we've been saying here this whole entire season so far you are that you know it's time to maybe address. Some of the needs of the team you had berry say at the end of last year he needed a a little more pop up front. If there was going to be anything in what had lou give him gave him every way to a new contract Nelson came back on a new. The contract Lee came back on a new contract and they swapped out PHILP four broussard. Who isn't what they wanted him to be? But not a terrible replacement. I guess you can kind of argue maybe not Arthur staple had a really good article here last week with awesome potential trade targets especially with the pellet being out with torn Achilles for the rest of the regular season. You could see him. Try to bolster the back end with That somebody with term. Who knows you know we have? Thomas is down in bridgeport. He's still injured. I believe so he would be one of the first call ups. I mean we did see our Ho- get called up and do the bridgeport shuffle without making any appearances in the NHL aside from his practice time with the team So we definitely need a first line wing. We need third line center and some of the names that Arthur brought up We're Ilya Kovalchuk Melker Karlsson. Trevor Lewis. Chris Kreider Kreider which is probably never going to happen. You're not going to see the rangers and the Islanders Hook up on a trade Connor Sheree from Buffalo Tyler. Ennis from the sends. Then you've got some other guys that are are F as like Andreas Athens see you from the wings. Kevin the blank from sharks Andy Green his name mentioned. Jj Patio which which that's a risk. He's playing first line. Minutes up there and auto honor struggling team. Would he come in to this Organization with this coaching staff and find the same success with more limited minutes on the third line. You never know. He's also in a contract year so it's curious to see what's going to happen there. I'm not saying he wouldn't help. He would definitely help tyler. Toffoli from the King's Craig Smith from the prides Brenden Dillon was his name was brought up there for another defenseman and then we go to the next page here. I got players with term like Kyle Palmer from New Jersey Andrei case from the Ducks Brandon. Saad from Chicago Alec Martinez from the Kings. I think that would be a really good fit Nick Bonino from the prides and Travis Ajax who Elliott Friedman in his thirty one thoughts last week supposedly XLII the islanders could be one of the teams that inquired about him and He declines to be traded at this time he wants to stick it out. New Jersey annoys. Close the Games played in that organization and to be honest with you. I don't really think he'd be a good fit on the island especially with his cap hit. He's more year left. So if anybody anybody is going to be brought into the team it would be a guy like Andreas ethnicities speedy player. He's doing decent on a really bad wings team as we saw a couple weeks ago or last week. I don't remember when exactly when the island is trounced them and put up a snowman So I mean remains to be seen. The reality of the situation is Lou. Lamoriello has not made a trade and over six hundred days. I know if you follow me and also Jeff Capellini on twitter. You'll you'll we'll see he constantly puts out the the amount of days that have transpired since the last time. Lose me to hockey trade and it's easy to say from this side you know now what needs to be done but you don't really know from the GM side if he's tried to do things if he's struggling to do things you know or or teams are just trying to get way too much out of the islanders in in order to help them improve. So I mean we don't really know that's part of the lore of the whole Lamour Carello way of hockey. You don't really know anything until it's going to happen. And you see some of the people who cover the sport Andrew Gross and Arthur staple and steep has said on his podcast that it's a little frustrating at times because they don't really get much to write about. Sometimes you know outside of the interviews with the players fire so it's it's kind of like a crazy thing there you know you genuinely feel though that the the lack of tinkering is hindering this team. You even even have a reluctance when they do bring up somebody who could potentially help from bridgeport. That player doesn't necessarily draw in. It's absolutely necessary. And if they do.

"Of trying to just work through some of the issues at hand and Knowing Berry Trots in the coaching staff. I'm sure they've watched plenty of tape on some of their place but the game started right out of the gate with some bad puck management PUCK goes out to the point is a point shot Thomas Christ's makes a save. The puck bounces right to the slot. WHO's there of Guinea Malcolm? WHO's obviously playing well in the absence of Sidney? Crosby he like he always does scores. The first goal of the game like a minute for into the first period again islander fans. It's like myself sat there and said hey it's fine. This is fine par for the course. Right Islanders ended the first period tied at one. Mayfield goal. The new islanders killer Brian. Rust makes it to one the aisles tied soon after that with a powerplay goal Anthony Beauvilliers Villa Brock Nelson gave the aisles at three to lead with another power play goal But pens take a page from the aisles. Look Foale their goalie. which was a weird situation? It was a five on four after some Nastiness Andrews Lee and Zach and reese quote unquote fought and as I used air quotes there. But we're only assessed roughing penalties coincided roughing penalties on the play. And then he saw an unsportsmanlike. It conduct penalty supposedly rescinded. And I forget who the player was but he went off. The ICE Sullivan sent one of his players to go. Retrieve him from the locker room hopefully hopefully head into the showers and then they wind up dropping the puck and over time because they didn't want to wait for him anymore and I it was just a strange. The situation and with some questionable officiating decisions not questionable officiating obviously but just some questionable decisions by the officiating crew that night. I don't really understand. Stand why you know four on four should have really been five on five but opened up the ice there and over time it was kind of not overtime time but late in the game and a little dangerous but the islanders weathered the storm times Christ stood tall where we moved into overtime. Now at this point point for the second game in a row. I was standing in my living room with my hands in my pockets pacing. Because it's just I mean I would have been doing the same thing had I've actually been in attendance in Brooklyn so my wife was making fun of me. My my children were making fun of me. Nobody really understands how stressful I can make hockey for for myself. It's I love it especially. There's nothing like overtime hockey. There really is in whether it's the playoffs regular season. Obviously the playoffs way. More exciting I'll though I wouldn't really want it to get into overtime. I would rather just do it in regulation and be done with it but we live for these memorable moments and to see in which kind of a hero is gonNA stand up and that hero in this instance again for the second game in a row in his five hundredth game all with the islanders like we mentioned in previously Barack Nelson. His goal and I have no idea really what happened whether Murray was expecting shot or not but rockets the puck near the Blue Line he goes in he beats one of the pens. defensemen it looks like he's going to shoot he pulls the puck up makes a nice little stick handle move to gain a little bit more real estate in the slot and as he's going through the slot I don't know if Matt Murray Loses Track of the puck or loses sight but brock. It goes through the royal road gets into position to score or at least to shoot and Beats Matt Murray who is trying to scramble back into position into almost an empty net. It was one of those goals where it probably shouldn't have happened. It's another play where maybe maybe the islanders got a little bit of luck on their side. it's just great to see I. I don't know I I can't really Vocalized much and I kind of said the same thing on twitter to two games in a row I I I exclaimed that I I didn't really know how to handle what I'm feeling about this team. It's it's amazing. Obviously I was. I was alive for the four Stanley cups in a row but way too young to remember the fourth one. Obviously I was. You no not really watching hockey all that much at the beginning three and In my adult life. I haven't had many chances to really understand how to deal with like a team that wins like this and it's it's a great feeling and I said I don't want to Brag Rag. I don't want to be cocky. Amok going to be one of those fans at his. Your team sucks. You know like Boo Rangers. What are you guys doing right now? Devils how look at you. Not that is really a huge rivalry with the devils with the Rangers. Obviously and it's just fun. I'm trying to have fun with it. I mean have an outlet with the aisles. Faithful podcast asked where I can kinda convey my feelings in a sense here to you guys who are obviously sharing the joy in the excitement as well with me obviously showing it to me on twitter too. That's the other thing too like I have not. I mean I. I've been on twitter for a long time but the amount of interactions that you you guys are showing me in the support for everything you know. Be With my grandmother passing away and some of the things I say and right and obviously with the podcast. It's it's just the whole thing is just so fun you know and I failed to mention this in the last episode as well but last Friday or earlier in the week Arthur Staples podcast that he had Katie Strang on also who writes for the athletic former New York islanders beat writer as well for Newsday her and I have had a very good relationship over the years. I've been featured in a couple of her articles For Espn Newsday. Okay and some of those other things she always kinda reaches out to me when there's She needs like an opinion. So it's pretty cool that she thinks of me like that but she gave me a shout out. During staple's PODCASTS podcasts. which I thought was amazing? It was something I really needed it as a pick me up during last week when I was kind of deal with all that stuff that I was dealing with so I i WanNa have her on obviously We've been in contact. That's the one guest. I'm GonNa tell you that you know we're we're working on so Katie's GonNa come on and talk talk about all the amazing thing she's been doing but you know stuff like that. Just this season has just been crazy for me and a whole bunch of different respects and I can't tell you guys how much I appreciate all the support. It's it's been a lot of fun. It really has another a little bit of exciting news as well. I am going to be joining the amazing crew from Lighthouse Lighthouse hockey over on exiled with Dan and Mike there some point on Sunday so I don't know when they're going to post that up sewed obviously be up on Monday so lookout for that Again we're going to catch up from these late games here early next week Monday Tuesday schedule permitting. It's a holiday week. I'm going to be off for a couple of days. I'm going to enjoy that. So obviously there'll be plenty of opportunity to talk islander's hockey then some some other news I recently migrated the aisles faithful website to a new blazing fast hosts. I wasn't happy with the way it was loading. It was very slow. Shared thing thing and Yeah so I spent a couple of days moving the website It's got a SSL certificate now so your browsers will not yell at you that the sites not secure and I wanted to kind of get ahead of the ball because apple is going to be requiring. RSS Feeds that go into into their podcast. APP need to be secure. So I didn't want to have to rush around in and make sure that was all up to snuff. So that's all working if you head over to the faithful DOT COM. Check it out. You might have to clear cash or your history but I swear that the website loads so fast it really is which should help a bunch of different areas as well so also I've been waiting. I don't know why it's been taking so long. Couple of people have asked me why we're not on Iheartradio and I reached out to them because I had submitted. It'll a while ago and I guess they said that there's a backlog of entries and whatnot so I'm hoping here in the next week or so that will be available there as well. I've also had a couple of people reach out to me and say Hey Mike. How can we not updating the youtube channel? And I've kind kinda slowly been doing that as well. I kind of let that go there at the end of last season at the beginning of this season. So I'll work on that over the next couple of days as well and as always as we like to close out every episode police head over to Kings coast coffee and buy up that fantastic small batch roasting they are a.

"The place there in Pittsburgh which seems to be an issue. Here league-wide Still early in season. It's kind of funny because it's been cold it's not like it's been high humidity and warm temperatures. But I mean with the multi. Use Buildings is this. This is the new reality of the NHL. I guess anyway Islanders come out in the second period tied up to two and a period down three to. It's kind of like a roller rollercoaster. Third period pens. Take two goal lead again with a power play. Goal to make four to Bailey makes it four three Islanders pull their goalie. Varlamov and Ryan Pool lock with an absolute howitzer from the point ties. The game late gets a little dicey there and the foreman of the last couple of minutes whilst four four islanders make. It's over time a little bit of back and forth. The islanders obviously have a a very strong game plan and overtime which you know the penguins out overtime them in their first meeting where they they One obviously ended the ten game win streak but rock Nelson follows up a anthony. beauvilliers shot the puck squeezed squeezed sneaks through Matt Murray's pads and Rock Nelson's there to push it across the line. Islanders win so Thursday a little bit different of a game. Obviously this time it was in New York at the Barclay Center. Islanders were two for seven on the power. Play and a couple of those powerplays. Were a little abbreviated previous. Because the islanders took some of their own but they killed off all three of the Pittsburgh power plays a lot of strong defensive. Playing this game much much much better Showing here although there was a couple little plays here and there where you like to see a little bit stronger play on. I don't know if it's necessarily something that they're going to be guilty of here whether or not You know they're still kind of trying to just work through some of the issues at hand and Knowing Berry Trots in the coaching staff. I'm sure they've watched plenty of tape on some of their place.

"The thirtieth breath to face Columbus at the Barclays and they've played up pretty well at the Barclays as of late. The sharks have struggled Through this season so far and sit tenth in the West they have the same amount of points twenty three as the ducks and the flames But have played fewer games. They are seven three no in their last ten and beat the golden all the nights in overtime on Thursday. So they've played better as of late but they still have struggled for stretches here. The ducks have also struggled. They've played one less game than San. Jose sit ninth and have and they're currently ten ten in three coming off an overtime loss in a crazy one to to the Florida Panthers. The panthers overcame a three are four-goal deficit to tie the game. Come from behind. If you haven't unseen highlights of that game. I suggest you do. It's I think they want to overtime games in a row as well coming from behind. They're just just another crazy story here in the east and obviously Joel. Quenneville has them playing much. Better than having the past obviously also with the Brodsky in net. It's kind of the big thing last but not least the kinks in a little bit of a joke here. Kings aren't the exact royalty right now. They're playing like struggling kingwood with a bad case of Gout. The rich Man's disease the disease of kings. They sit dead. Last in the West with a record of nine twelve and one in nineteen points they did be the Red Hot Edmonton oilers the other night at five one on Thursday and five of the last nine wins have come over the last ten games. So they're improving. They've been in the news a little bit Telling Kovalchuk that sorry. We're just not going to need you right now. Maybe not for the rest of the season. There is a little issue with a bonus. That's going to be paid out sometime in the middle of December Where they would be on the hook for it? So I think they're going to potentially try to move him or waive waive him or whatever here in the coming weeks ahead. The West the western conference I should say is a completely different animal than the east let alone the Metro. The Metro has like some of the hottest best teams in the entire league right now but the western conference has notoriously been a tougher more physical type of play. Sort of like you know. The western Canada teams would be shell the rock them sock them type hockey which you know. I don't know. Is that a term. We shouldn't use anymore do everything that happened with Don Cherry last week but will the street continue. Who knows? That's why we're here but we're GonNa talk about the islanders have just been playing fantastic hockey. I mean we're going to go into a little bit more detail. On the two wins the to overtime wins over the penguins. So Tuesday against depends the islanders row for four on the power play again. Still the least amount of power plays by a wide margin here which will go into the next game because it gets a little interesting In the entire NHL but there are over for four on the power play. They killed off to four penalty. Kills which was pretty good as you could potentially hear my children. Yelling upstairs ended the first I period on Tuesday down to nothing. Obviously nothing new which we spoke about already Didn't really seem to come out of the gate with lots of energy Just puck was bouncing all over the place there in Pittsburgh which seems to be an issue. Here league-wide Still early in season. It's kind.

"The Isles Faithful. PODCAST I'm your host as always Michael Sherline and this is episode number. Forty number forty seems like yesterday that we just started this last summer but here we are at episode forty. Today is Saturday November Twenty Third Twenty nineteen and that. We have a little bit talk about since Monday don't we. It's been a really fun week. Even the islanders only played two games between episodes that we recorded here and honestly everything has been very fun. It's a little hard to wrap your mind around when you think about it with all the records streaks and everything else and I promise you I am not going to add. Add the word streak into this title. Two episodes in a row is enough of that. We already know what they're doing and we're going to go into it and again I have have written down a whole bunch of stuff on my notebook here. Another couple of pages. I'm going to try to keep this episode under an hour and twenty minutes because I get a little long winded sometimes when I have a guest but you guys seem to enjoy that and I promise we will continue to have a guest regularly. Clearly I have a couple of things still in the works here. I am not going to name any names until they're nailed down. But I promise you you're going to enjoy the next couple of episodes with with guests but now that I am. I'm back to a regular recording schedule. I want to try to get a longer episode out early in the week and then a shorter thirty to forty minute episode Inbetween Games Just to kind of catch up and and talk about some of the things that have transpired. So let's get into it shelley. Obviously the the big news or the big talking points right now are going to be this islanders streak the point streak creek a franchise record point streak that they recently set on Thursday For the first time in islanders history they have recorded points in sixteen. Straight Games We are we or the islanders are fifteen own one in their last sixteen games With thirty one of thirty two possible points that is pretty darn good is it. Not they have won all sorts of different ways Come from behind a couple a couple of times which I'll go into a minute Eric Horneck on the NY skinny blog had so many different things to choose from to talk about today. I can honestly make an episode of all the hard work that he does. If you don't follow him on twitter you should you should also file his blog and everything that he writes on the new orlands website as well but just crazy amount of things. Here it's hard to kind of focus. We have rock Nelson as the overtime hero We talked about in episode thirty nine with Mike Tracy. This week that you know going into the game on Tuesday against Pittsburgh Berg. He hadn't scored and ten games here. We are after the last two against Pittsburgh. He has three goals into games. And like I said I wasn't really worried about brock. Because he he was shooting the puck a whole bunch in. And that's usually a good sign for me of a player who might not really be contributing points wise. But he's still doing the right things on the ice so I mean I know. He's streaky. Player as Anthony Beauvilliers but rock has two game winning overtime. Goals in back to back games. Eric Horneck Brought up in his blog that brock Nelson is in overtime hero. He's got to overtime winning goals in back to back games the second on Thursday coming in his five hundred. NHL Game All as a New York. Islander that's pretty darn good if I do not say so myself which I just did The only other fired a record three overtime goals besides Brock Nelson in a season is John Varas and Vars did that two times. He had three goals in twenty e. Eleven twenty ten twenty eleven and four in the two thousand fourteen two thousand fifteen season but hopefully brock can surpass him and we can kind of a race number ninety one there from the record books. Obviously as we talked about the team has broken a franchise record with their current aren't streak and the former fifteen game point streak in New York islanders history or nineteen seventy eight seventy nine nine hundred eighty nine hundred eighty one and nineteen eighty one. Eighty two two of those years. You obviously know were cup winning seasons. I'M NOT SAYING THE NEW YORK. Islanders can win the Cup this year. I mean any team can win the Cup right. It look at Saint Louis. They fired their coach early in the season they were doing terrible. Come from behind storm through the rest of the League the second half of the season and ultimately win the Stanley Cup. Anything can happen. This is the parody in this league is ridiculous and I mean you talk about parity already while we're on that subject the capitals are still I in the metro as much as the islanders have been winning here. What seems like every game? The last time like we spoke spoke about last episode. The islanders lost regulation was October eleventh at just insane. So you never know per Erik Horneck Nelson is the first player in islanders history to record ot winners in consecutive games. So that's another little bit of record setting things here. The aisles record of sixteen eighteen three and one is the most wins and points. The aisles have ever had three twenty games some other. Notables and this is a mixture of stuff from air cornick and Arthur staple on twitter order fourteen. Three and three in seventy six seventy seven which they also did again in seventy eight seventy nine. They're fourteen five in one. Eighty seven eighty eighty eight fourteen six. Oh in twenty fourteen twenty fifteen and twelve four and four in eighty one eighty two so obviously there are some good with teams. They're the they're in their own great company with this season of fifteen on one. I loved to see this magic continue. It's been so fun to watch. I mean a little stressful stressful at times with how. They've had to come back which they seem to do. Almost every game that they are Mormons the last time that aside from last year if if opponent scores I you're like it's fine. Everything's fine islanders are GonNa do what they do. They're gonNA come back. They're going to play strong. They might come out a little slow. Hello especially that Tuesday game earlier this week and the game against Philly on Saturday last weekend but you know teams can play good with elite. League teams can also play good when they're behind. It doesn't really matter. The islanders have done both And it's remarkable. I think that like Mike and I had talked about an episode thirty nine again. This is the type of hockey that you need to be able to play if you WANNA play deep into the playoffs through May and into June June if it goes out for so I love it the NHL also put out a fun graphic post game on Thursday and they had had A bunch of fantastic stats on there as well that I tweeted out. Did you know that the islanders have had seventeen different goalscorers during this streak of sixteen games with points. Eleven different players have had a game winning goal. They've had three multiple comeback wins and nine. Total Comeback Wins. This streak would not be possible without in from long island information like that but without play like that it could be be a completely different thing if they would have lost those one goal games we would be at the bottom of the standings if they didn't really pull out these winds so it's important to bank points surly and the islanders have I believe Arthur staple had said or somebody maybe was on any NHL network radio that the islanders at this point having banked so many points in and you know having the record that they they do can go five hundred for the rest of the season and still be on pace to have ninety five points which should be good enough to make the playoffs. Obviously we don't want to go in as a wildcard in the eighth seed there but this is why it's so important to win games early. The aisles have also finally gotten the attention of a lot of people throughout the league. And not just here in the United States this kind of happening north of the border as well they are at the top or near the top of every power ranking that I have seen over the last couple holidays now this is good and bad. Obviously we want the attention. The islanders deserve the attention. And you know the media attention but with that comes a little bit of scrutiny. Now obviously the rest of the teams in the League. No what the islanders are not gonNA take them lightly. I'm sure it's at the top of all bulletin boards. You know during the practice meetings and pre-game skates and everything like that. You just look at what Pittsburgh did for Barzel on Tuesday by keeping them off the scoresheet and they were double covering him most of the game. He Act- actually got benched for that turnover. That led to a goal on Tuesday. So you're GONNA look at these next three games in California and they're going to obviously be keen to some of the guys who found success. Did you also see Robin Bin. Liner was quoted yesterday afternoon saying he watches most of the Islanders Games and obviously he has a lot of friends on the team. But when was the last time you saw are you saw you saw a former player of a organization take up so much interest in the current one. Once he's gone that's kind of remarkable. It's pretty cool to see such a great guy character guy who's been hot lately to Anthony Beauvilliers four straight games. The goal or at least a goal he had the two games. They're backed backward scored two goals last week Going into the weekend to love to see it. He's just riding this hot streak. That whole line of I think I saw it says the. BNB Line Vo Bracken Actually Brock Nelson would be the end. I digress but brock's got three goals in two games after being goal is in the last ten previous of to Pittsburgh Games. Obviously like we said the two overtime winners which is huge bazaar points in the last. Five Barzel has three assists Thursday like I previously mentioned again. He was held off the scoresheet against Pittsburgh on Tuesday but he's the islanders unders hottest goalscorer and leading the islanders in points with twenty and brock Nelson. Right underneath him there at number two with nineteen this. This is a great time to hit the road. The team has been reported being so close the last two seasons. Obviously this group has been together by and large complete with a couple of editions in Varma love and dark brisard. Obviously with some of the kids that have come into the line of two with Auto Koya villa everybody else that has gone out there and the injuries here but this is a really good time. They hit the road they are going to continue to just grow. Closer for in road gives them time to kind of really spend time away from home. They're going to have a bunch of team dinners and gluttony and enjoy the sights. It's over there in California which is fantastic. If you've never been to California I've been a couple of cities now not for hockey. Obviously but I always love going California. Only the weather is just fantastic. And you know it's been pretty cold here in New York so they're going to enjoy that west coast life there for a couple of days on this west coast trip as I refer to my notes here again. They're going to start tonight. Saturday in San Jose two games at ten thirty eastern Monday in Anaheim at ten P. M. Eastern in La on Wednesday at ten thirty eastern. which is Thanksgiving Eve? They return home Saturday..

So you know. We're all thankful funny. Funny Story Domino. I obviously go way back and Way Back when when he first started lighthouse hockey James Myrtle actually called me on the phone. I don't even you know how he got my phone number. Probably through the island or something and He was like Hey Mike. It's James Myrtle and I was like the James Myrtle and I guess he you know at at the time was involved with The parent company of Lighthouse Hawkin and the other great blogs that has been estimation yes out there and He wanted me to talk too dumb to try to get involved because I was established and had a head credentials and everything. I know DOM is out there in in Saint Louis I believe right. Yeah so you know he Being away and being a transient fan so to speak. But he's a good guy and he's done great stuff and he's I'm glad that he's still going i. I wish I had time to continue to write but like you I have found on that podcasting is a way to get my thoughts out there. It's it's a couple of hours of work as opposed to sitting typing and editing. And it's too much it it's too much and and this is a lot more a lot more ease. It's a lot easier to say it than it is to ride it but I that that's a great sir. I hadn't heard that story. I personally am blocked by James Myrtle on twitter because I insulted him Not by name by the way it's alongside I don't want to get into it but I found his leafs coverage to be a bit of a roller coaster. STOR and tweeted it and to be blocked me so there you go nice. He's blocked a lot islander fans say. I'm probably one of one of so so not really a he actually message me not that long ago to tell me I was doing a good job with the podcast saw. That was pretty cool but yeah he's a big deal so that's a big. You Know I. I try to maintain those professional relationships. So but yeah I mean so before we get out of here I just want to remind signed everybody Head on over to kinkos coffee. Dot Com They are an amazing coffee company. That it's located right here on Long Island. They roast your coffee talk to order the same day as the shit out. They have a new blend. That's the lamplight blended. It is all sorts of different island roasts all put together. It's it's got the fishermen sort of logo on there So ties their island fandom in to their coffee love it is fantastic. I have drank rank it. I ordered it a couple of times myself. But if you use the Code Faithful Isles you'll get ten percents off your entire order so head over to kings coast dot com order up some coffee OFFI. It'll definitely help. If you have a podcast Dan I. Hopefully you've gotten a chance.

"Fifth. They play the senators at home and then Thursday the seventh. It's penguins at home. So what do you think what. What do you think they're really going to do here? Over the next couple of games I mean they they do have a couple of tough opponents. Buffalo's plane absolutely out of their mind. Tampa is just Tampa Tampa. Yeah and you know. The pens of Kinda been muddling along as much as they've had some turnover and some of their own struggles. I mean this is a deceptively on deceptively. This is a dangerous stretch of games like You know the islanders They've they've been playing you you play. WHO's on the schedule? But I mean look at the teams. They've beaten Columbus was was always going to be tough. They've Philly was coming in although Philly was on the second of back to back so they might have been a little bit. Depleted pleaded but senators game again. That's a game you need to win. But the coyotes were coming in as hot as anybody at that time and and they beat them They came back to beat the panthers. The panthers have kinda fallen apart a little bit that came back to beat the blues. Who you know for fifty five minutes were completely clamped down on on him? So I I think that they you know I- Buffalo's GonNa come down to Earth a little bit I think they they They blew a game yesterday. Loss in a shootout how to To The coyotes actually Tampa the islands have actually done too terribly against Tampa so I think they can do all right. I mean they're going to win. I don't know and then the penguins the penguin to me is the scariest of the bunch. Because that's a division game. That team has a history with you that they don't like you you don't like them Of those four. I mean. I think it's conceivable that they win three of them. If you split. That's that's good. I mean you can't really ask for much more than that and if they do better than in a split it well then you guys are for real. I set it on our podcast and I still feel like to me. The the owners can play with any team in the league and conceivably really beat any team in the league with the exception of to the her Carolina hurricanes who have a gear that the islanders simply don't have don't have an answer for and the Boston Bruins who who play the islanders game better than the islands do and they they play it with more talent than the islanders have and with more precision than the islanders play with other than those who teams. I think they stand a pretty good chance so I mean I I I'm gonNA say split those those four games Alvin please don't lose against the senators honestly and if you know if they if it it turns out that they you know they lose the next two and they win the next two I. I'll be okay with that. I mean you know. They've had such a great start. That at some point winning streak is gonNA come to an end But if they take three out of the four four four then you know what and you just just be happy and enjoy it and and take it you know 'cause it's You know it's it. It means that some good things are happening. I couldn't agree with you more It's funny that you know you you brought up had said on the podcast about Boston and Carolina Those are two teams. That I guess what you could consider the islanders would aspire to be eventually Yes I mean. We're very close or they are very close. I hate making that mistake because I I don't play for them But Yeah They Carolina's we saw in the playoffs us but as we also alluded to earlier in this podcast sitting around for eleven days did really not help them at all plus they did not have boy. I chuck in that series so a couple of goals that could went in the islanders favor that did not go or disallowed kind of suck the energy out of the building and the team. You know whatever it is what it is. We can't really look behind us. GotTa look forward now looking forward because we've pretty much got to everything we wanted to get to WHO Why don't you tell me what you've been working on over there at lighthouse hockey? Oh my gosh too much never too much. I mean you have time to do this. So the and the funny thing is like I. I used to primarily right and I've got much less free time lately and so it turns the podcasting actually takes time than writing which is sounds weird but it's actually true but Well we saw vyas anxiety with my friend. Mike Lee Boffin. I we do that. Every every week We just kind of go off and talk for an hour and people listen for some reason. I don't know why but we'll have a fun time. It's pretty chill but this season we've introduced to more podcasts. Who are are a little network? One is called my favorite islanders game where fans can call in and is google voice the number and they could tell us what their favourite islanders game experience was could be something that was meaningful to. You could be just a great game that you saw and loved and and had a great time Matt and we've done one episode but it's been really cool and you know we kind of already run the gamut from no personal stories Two Games that are just just remember you. Just remember them because they we're such a turning point in the franchise we're GONNA get it. We've already gotten a couple of L. May twenty fourth nineteen eighty calls and I expect to get a few more but I think we're also going to get a few February eleventh to a two thousand fourteen calls if you remember what happened in that game so I believe that was the Friday night lights or rather not light. That's got a few times or the I forget get what date but the GIONTA various returned from Toronto game. TWOS GONNA pop up a few times. So I'm Dan my favorite islanders game is that's a new one and then the other new one We premiered appeared before my favorite islanders game was called Islanders Award winners and it's basically a narrative. PODCAST that's Goes through a focuses on one season where An islander won a major. Nhl Award so our first episode was on. Dennis Rodman calder trophy. Nineteen seventy four Goes was through the entire season how he came to the islanders. The stuff that happened little minutia that happened throughout the season his Time Management Mint issue that he ran into his playing with his brother John who had been acquired earlier his mustache that he had his nickname that he had What he bought with his first STA paycheck and so That was the first episode of the next episode of that Premiers Next Monday on the November fourth and about Bryan Trottier A and his nineteen seventy nine season in which he won the heart and art. Ross trophy so again. It's all about that. One season the ups and downs quotes and and little stories. That kinda get lost lost when you're like. Oh Yeah Bryan. Trottier one are trophy and I seventy nine but like what does that mean what happened. How did he do that? Where did it go? Who who was he again going up against in that season season? And so we kind of cover that and those are the first two episodes and we're GonNa have a whole bunch more. Every month will be a new episode. So we'll get to sit dynasty guys to it's a lot of dynasty guys but it's also modern guys stupid that that wants some awards and the other team has had a lot of really good players on we complain a lot but This team has had some really really good players and had some really really good season so it's cool.

"Yeah he's a great representative for the team you know and it took him a while he had a couple of slow act on his but but he's always still scoring at the same time I think he's got like you have to cut goals in his last three games there's a touchdown or not and I forgot who said that WHO said this might have been that we're not gonNA talk about football because it's sore subject in New York we have a couple weird Rut type knee buckle type thing I don't really the nasty injury they didn't even really want to show you the the replay and then what for as long as they did after yeah I wouldn't that makes me wonder what Martin a little bit I mean he was clearly laboring for the third period I guess is probably a good sign that it's not Martin Command skate a little bit but the fact that he could might have been pretty telling but you know like make a statement and say hey I'm here when these guys come back don't just you know ship me off to including case I think ideally would probably be healthy scratch and would slot in effective bite if they can be effective with with somebody with del Colle on the other side or that's why you might be seeing this uptick these guys are trying to make a statement and be like hey I'm here I believe they said it's like a next man mentality and I I love that you just you can't help but just like buy into it and to kind of fall pocket and got his first NHL point the other night Big Ross boss in front of the net easy story which I didn't really know about prior to it making its way around yeah I was GonNa say yeah led to the infect crazy like you said solid Chris Sam the other day over the weekend and you know his dad was interviewed on I think weird walking over to actually finally see his son play there gone down I I do like what I see out of him there's a lot of potential Wallstrom look like gangbusters first couple of games and then I think like a lot of rookies you kind a lot of people were kind of upset that it was healthy scratch oh day I mean I'm okay with with that I would like to see him get back in and maybe playing on a line with with bar dro- so where where the islanders power play which is I guess we'll talk about in a second but you has I'm presario looked a little bit lost in the first couple of games and now he's got three goals in as many games until there's too many guys for that spot and then when that happens they'll they'll have to cross I do like what I see out of him and I do think that he's got the skills when he that first but then you know the hip the hits dot started stopped coming and it wasn't getting quite and he just gives it a coach what he wants he's going to be here long I don't know I mean do the islanders avocado guys like benefits is hurt Auto Cova is hurt and you know there's down if it wasn't for all of those injuries he would be playing you know h I'll clutter buckhead said about Bhadra that he's a right handed cases Ezekiel's so you know is is him is him will him will him at this point is he you know again he is also making the making time here but shot now and you know a guy I was telling my wife and my daughter while Wilson Watch the game the I was like he knows what to do with the puck can score and he's just gotTa go right here so now when there's a spot and not screw things up and so far that's what he does you could play he's kind of becoming a bit of a a folk l- folk hero and islanders folk hero I thank and probably we haven't really had a whole heck of a lot to root for except for the guy that wants to go out there and beat the crap out of everyone Makota and the whole thing I hey Mexico scored a Hattrick so that's right that's part of it too I loved how he paused when he was recollecting everything lamaze and he's probably had it rehearsed but yeah that was a great that was a great episode it was really cool do you know I don't know I hate the phrase it is what it is but what I like about it is that yeah what gives and then it's right back to work like they're nobody's getting derailed by this nobody's got I because he's The guy who keeps getting hacked wacked on the hands he took a he took a a wack in the yeah yeah his lip Kylie Jenner Lip you know I at Asia and the like and they have a bunch there so far like percentage wise they're actually taking on man we're not gonNA get any power places GONNA stink I you know they're just gonNA have to deal with it and there's against score a I think it's a conspiracy theory I talked a little bit about this had they've scored five times at eighteen chances so twenty seven point eight as on this time but yeah I mean you have a new power play coach I do like what I see hi test is it's pass the eye test moving around although they are taking stupid penalties I'm sure it is cyclical it will come about and handed at thirty one tries I mean that's not terrible as wealth yeah after that certainly after that Carolina game where they got that week they got they got basically got to that point in the last couple of games and they've looked really really good so you know they'll get there and they're gonNA they're gonNA get back to where they need to be addressed the power play we all sat here so you know they fix what's broken and they they don't they don't fix what ain't broken and in short order you know it's funny brought up the oilers game but without James Neal meantime like the islanders defense was not good in that game now like there is so up over the next week or so here so we have Friday is and then Thursday the seventh it's penguins at home so what do you think what Tampa Yeah and you know the pens of Kinda been yeah the islanders they've they've been playing you know you pleaded but senators game again that's a game you need to win blue's who you know for fifty five minutes were completely clamped down on how to to the coyotes actually Tampa the islands have actually done that team has a history with you that they don't like you you don't like them it well then you guys are for real I set it on our podcast and I still have a gear that the islanders simply don't have don't have an answer for and the Boston Bruins who so I mean I I I'm gonNA say split those those four games Alvin they've had such a great start that at some point winning streak is gonNA come to an end but if they it means that some good things are happening I couldn't agree with you more it's you could consider the islanders would aspire to be eventually US but as we also alluded to earlier in this podcast sitting allender favor that did not go or disallowed kind of suck the energy out of the building and to why don't you tell me what you've been working on over there at Lighthouse Hockey Oh and I've got much less free time lately and so it

"Yeah and now. Obviously we have have Wallstrom Playing kind of sheltered minutes right now. It seems like the the minutes have gone down. I I do like what I see. Out of him. there's a lot of potential attentional there. The kids should have at least four goals at this point with all the iron. He's hit so What are your thoughts on? Wallstrom bar draw While Wallstrom Wallstrom look like gangbusters first couple of games and then I think like a lot of rookies. You kinda started to kind of lose steam a little bit you know. The excitement was kind of becoming like maybe a man. I'm still here. You know I I'm okay with him. Getting Sad I know a lot of people were kind of upset that it was healthy. Scratch day I mean. I'm okay with with that like this kid's GonNa use nineteen years old. He's GonNa have a long career he you know. He didn't have the same kind of energy that he had. You know the first couple of games and I'm fine with that like that's okay I would like to see him. Get back in. And maybe playing on a line with with bar dro- is an ideal But you know I mean. He's he's playing here and he's definitely got the skill like he can definitely do it and he likes to shoot and he's been on the power play a little bit so the where where the islanders power play. Which is I? Guess we'll talk about in a second but You you know I think he's just gotTa find his way and I mean eventually the the seal will be broken and he'll probably pick up a bunch of in a row and like kind of like star. Has I'm presario. Looked a little bit loss in the first couple of games now. He's got three goals in as many games. So I think it'll happen You know again like I was just saying there is opportunity here for him to play and they don't need to worry about whether or not to send him back until there's too many guys for that spot and then when that happens they'll they'll have to cross that bridge when they come to it and maybe somebody else got hurt. I don't know who dons but You know I I would like to see him get at least one but and he's had chances and surely he will at some point but now I do like what I see out of him and I do think that he's got the skills when he that first shift in that game against Louis when he came out and hit some dude in the corner I was like. Yeah this is the guy like you. It was very exciting. Like yes. He's out there. He's buying Bagshaw hockey in the first shift. But then you know the hip the hits dot started stop coming and it wasn't getting quite the shot off as much as he he had and that's when he gets at an embargo just I I I love guys like that. Like You know he just comes up and and he just gives it a coach. What he wants is going to be here long? I don't know I mean do the Islanders Avocado Guys Kim. Yes they do so we'll see how long he's here but until he is he's he's making Hay and it with him the the big injury that probably propelled him was Tanta Fritz benefits is hurt. Auto Cova is hurt. And you know there's assist who's left aren't you get on a plane you're you're heading off to Columbus so you know it just sort of worked out that way and and here he is and again you know. He'll be the for sale root for injuries but down. If it wasn't for all of those injuries he would be playing. You know H I'll number two hundred and something so the he's GonNa make his. He's GonNa make the best of of what he can do you of his time here and It's cool to see I'm enjoying it. You know he's a fun guy to watch clutter Buckhead said about borrow that. He's a right handed. Casey's Ezekiel's so so now you take that into account now Martin is going to be out for the next four to six weeks you know. Does he stick around in that time you you know is is him is him will him will him. and Ross Johnson Kinda may bounce back and forth I mean but Ross's this is really filling in for camera of at this point so right. Yeah well Ross I think at this point is he. You know again. He is also making the making time here but but I think he knows that he's going to get put back into press box when when the time is ripe but again with him. Filling in for Martin is the same thing is the that this is his shot. Shot now and you know a guy I was telling my wife and my daughter while Wilson Watch the game the other day for a large man. He's got incredibly soft hands and I had to explain to my nine neural daughter what that means when a guy has soft hands he sense and You know I was like he knows what to do with the puck can score and he's just gotTa go right here so Now Oh it Ross is the kind of guy that you know. He's not going anywhere. That contract is keeping them here but I think he he's settled into a role he would like to play. But you know his role is to pop in when there's a spot and not screw things up and so far that's what he does. You could play him out there and he can you know boss people around. But he's also not a complete you. You know Black Hole in the lineup. When when the Puck is mistake so that's great I mean he's he's kind of becoming a bit of a a folk l- folk hero and islanders folk hero? Thank and probably. We'll be one by the time it's all done and you know. Needless to say we've had quite a few of those over the last couple of decades for sure we we haven't really had a whole heck of a lot to root for except for the guy that wants to go out there and beat the crap out of everyone. Well that's why we are. Where we're you know? We're we're New Yorkers. That's that's the way it is like Trevor Gillies before him like Ken. Baumgartner Makota and the whole thing I hey. Mexico scored a hat trick. So that's right. That's right which Joe Bono did a fantastic job. I can't say that enough. I know I've I think I've listened to it twice against so good. And the whole the whole of the hatrick stories is the best. That's part of it too. I loved how he paused when he was recollecting. Everything right probably told that story like a thousand times right like he's you know probably I'm sure it comes up every time he meets islanders fan. I'm sure it comes all that time. He's GonNa Hatrick lamaze and he's probably had it rehearsed but Yeah that was a that was a great episode was really cool. Do Do you WanNa talk a little bit about This crazy situation with the power. Play the fact that they're not getting any. Yes sure I mean you know I you know I don't know I hate the phrase. It is what it is but what I like about it is that they're not it's not getting in their heads. At least not as of yet I say that that hope that keeps that way but like now you might get sorta like a look like hey what you know what gives and then it's right back to work like they're nobody's getting derailed by this. Nobody's got I. I don't think trump's would let them. I don't think todd says you know if somebody's giving the reps too much I think trump's his slab on the back of the head and be like. Hey knock it off. You know The Guy who gets at the worst thing is Barsha because because he's The guy who keeps getting hacked and whacked on the hands. He took a he took a a wack in the leg against Saint Louis and we all thought he was cooked for a while but he came back and and did some things so forget about the face to the Kylie Jenner Kylie Jenner Lip You know I at at the end of the year. They're probably all ended up evening out and every team Mico through stretch like this but it is pretty weird and for it to happen right away with a new power play coach Asia and like and they have like a bunch there so far like percentage wise. They're actually pretty good on the power. Play this year so it's you know it's frustrating And it just I you know as long as it doesn't become like a distraction but they don't go into a game taken on man we're not gonNA get any power places GONNA stink. I you know they're gonNA have to deal with it and there's against score a A five on five like this is how it is and you know Bush keeps saying it and he's right. I don't know how how every team in the league ends up playing so clean against islanders. But that's where we are. I don't really I think it's a conspiracy theory. I talked a little bit about this Earlier this season about how you know. It didn't seem like there. I think at the time there is really only like eight power-play chances so I mean they've had scored five times at eighteen chances. So twenty seven point eight as as a specific number that you wanted to throw out there a second ago because I know some of you guys out there are gonNA say. Hey Mike why don't you give us them homers while I wrote it down on this time But Yeah I mean you have a new power play coach. I do like what I see. They're moving the PUCK. I'm not yelling at the TV in any kind of frequency. See like I did last season so I mean to me is look good. You know I mean yes. The eye test is it's pass the eye test. They're moving it around. Although they are taking stupid penalties with these in the first thirty seconds of power play which is giving them you know non much of an opportunity So there's that but you know I'm I'm sure it is cyclical it will kinda come about and it will even out as we move along here and the penalty kill is at eighty point six. They're only allowed six six goals against while shorthanded at a thirty one tries. I mean that's not terrible as wealth Yeah yeah no no. They've looked good on the panel. The again they've they've looked as as for the most part aside from you know after the first couple of games and After that certainly after that Carolina game where they got that week they got they got basically blown up by both the oilers and hurricanes after that point they've looked for the most part right. You know like themselves. I mean it didn't didn't take sixty minutes but Got To that point in the last couple of games and they've looked really really good so You know they'll get there. I mean I got I think it all comes back to trots. They know he knows what what it's going to take. And he knows when the penalty kill is getting killed and he knows when the power play is not doing its job and and they're gonNA they're gonNA get back to where they need to be addressed the power play. We all sat here under previous islanders regimes. We would have brought back the same. Exact powerplay coaches last. Cheer by last year's powerplay wasn't good. They brought in a new power play coach and now it looks pretty good so you know they fix what's broken and they they don't they don't fix what ain't broken now so far it's worked Again we're we're only like eleven games on the season so don't get too crazy but you know as long as they can keep piecing together little by little. They'll eventually be in full islanders but in short order. You know it's funny. Brought up the oilers game but without James Neal scoring four thousand goals against us in that game would have been a little closer. 'cause you're we know he's not GonNa do that again now but again like he did it but at the same time like the islanders defense was not good in that game now there is so I mean again you and I could buy scored four goals in that game too if there was nobody standing anywhere near US but Yeah that was good all right so we got a couple of tough match ups here coming up over the next week or so here. So we have Friday Tampa is going to be visiting at home and then Saturday diners are in Buffalo flow.

"And I think this is a big reason why Latinos it was done exist out in the in the suburbs the way the islanders do You know 'cause it's it. There's no real quick mass transit to the Coliseum There is to Barclays. But I mean if you're out in you know where you are. That doesn't really help all that much. You know it's GonNa take you a long time to get out there and that's just just kind of how it's going to be until Belmont is Fully armed and operational not not just the the arena but the train setup and shuttle buses. They're gonNA have and and whatever they're going to do to make it. I think the owners now kind of conscious of this fact that people come from all over to to watch these games they need to make it easier easier than it's been. I mean. The team played for forty still playing at the coliseum for forty six years and what worked in nineteen. Seventy five isn't GONNA work today. You can't pile the kids and a station and wagon show up at a one o'clock game on Saturday and everybody gets those. Just don't happen that much so No for me. I live in New Jersey and so when they leave Barclay Center. Yeah I'M GONNA be a little bit sad because I work in the city. It's easy the Barclays is like a twenty five minute subway ride. I take it I go home and like you said I mean I'm home by like eleven o'clock doc. If I'm lucky from there but it's a way it's easy way for me to to get to the game. Once they move out to Belmont forget it. I'm I'm probably going to be down to like one one weekend game a year and that's going to require me schlepping out. They're gonNA stop by my parents ask Salo or whatever and it's like a whole day thing and so that's just kinda how it is with this team team and you know you you wish it was better. You wish that the place was packed. And maybe when Belmont is again fully operational will be but now it's just gonNa be kind of all over the place and as islanders fans wear a passionate group and I think the team knows that it just you know getting us to the arenas kind of a challenge and hopefully they can meet the challenge at some point in the near future before world. Great I mean. I'm ready getting old and granted. I think you're a little older than either Greyer but all right well what about this fantastic goaltending that we touched upon a little bit here. We have Varma Lov who's four to know he's got a two point five three goals against and nine eighteen save percentage and grace's right behind him. He's four one and got a two point. One eight goals against and nine thirty one one. Save percentage what do you think about that. I mean I think that Mitch Korn is some kind of magician like I just him. Piero Greco whatever. They're doing It just works and I mean I think you're seeing why they felt comfortable and letting Robin Leonard Go as much as it sucks. I mean we rob Reiner and if you've if you still follow him on twitter he can. He still likes the islanders. So He's constantly commenting on their wins and liking people's posts and stuff like that but You know I do think that it's it's really interesting that they are able to kind of work this system and and they're at the point now where the the team again is all there in conjunction like they. They work in harmony with each other and they're able to get get rid of pucks hurry but at the same time it it is going to require some. Sometimes you know the goalie to be there and boy Varlamov had a bunch of really really really incredible saves in the gaming it suppliers the islanders. Never were never not in control of that game but he had to come out a specially in the third period. He made a couple that were just like damn. That's just really good and you know given his health issues you hope that. His Groin held up in those situations. But now he's looked really good and grace's just I mean his grace the most unappreciated Golden League. This guy just he had that one bad year and everybody was like wow. That's the end of him and now he's on like a second. Stray at this guy is just above average in every single statistic in the NHL. It's crazy. It's just you know the way they do. It is is you. You know whether it's confidence or gain planning or practice or habits or whatever they've got the touch and so far it's it's worked pretty well and you know they they're gonNA need it to continue because They're not how long the scoring is going to keep up but at some point you know they're gonna go into a lull and they're gonNA need those guys to to really step up. I'm going to touch base on the scoring and his second. There's is two things that I want to bring up about grace about that bad year. That you referenced. The first thing is he got hurt in the off season that year. If you remember right right his wife had said something about. She posted a picture that they are in the emergency room. I believe he got hurt. Mountain biking or something in it and then he had also stepped away for one season from his personal trainer him back and then it's like whatever he did in that off season between you know whether it was a minor injury or not not because you never really know or find out. And then the addition or subtraction and then the addition of this personal trainer has obviously worked wonders for him. Then you have Greco come in you have Mitch Korn as well Barry Trots so obviously whatever the goaltending coaches are teaching or not teaching but emphasizing these guys in fixing whatever the little flaws they see in their technique on top of the fact that you have whatever magic Barry Trots is able to work within his own system to complement this. I think that's obviously you've seen needed in the past with him. He won a Stanley Cup of Washington. So he's Kinda it's taken him sixteen months really to get to this point and like you had said before for if he thinks that there's more for this team to give I. I can't wait to see really what levels you're gonNA reach still looking for that pop in that scoring pop but Yeah I mean I think he you know they they know what they wanna see and like you said I mean he he the funny thing about that Cup in Washington as I think about this from title time. It's at all year. They're sort of advanced statistics or metrics. Or whatever you WANNA call them. We're kind of down and down beyond below where they normally were for a team like the caps it always constantly scores on a goals. And it's always you know one of the best teams in the League and that you're there was just sort of. They were good throughout at the end. They weren't bad they were there is surely they were pretty good but they just didn't look as good as they had in the past and sure enough they start the playoffs and boom they win the Stanley Cup. And I just I feel like Barry. We know what he needs to see. And he's going to wait until he gets and sees it but until then he's GonNa work with the guys he's got to see it as best they. Can you know they're working and and I I think he's really has a rapt audience too. I mentioned this last year. He just found a locker room. That was like yes. Please teach us. We want to know. And you know he's got a captain and and a team that will follow his lead and they're looking for the they're not satisfied they they want to keep on going. I think that the best part about that is for all intents and purposes. The locker room has been the locker room by and large really the same For the last like six seasons. You had some additions and subtractions but for the most part you have all these guys and I talked about this on twitter the other day only because like some of them that they're scoring at this pace that's unbelievable. You have all these guys that were drafted together over the course of you. No that small. Tenure of Garth's drafting prowess. I will say with a crooked smile and when I raised but You know you guys you got guys like Nelson and Bailey and and you know even tapes bow right now. It's just Kinda unbelievable. C- you have that homegrown talent. You have the talent that they they brought in and you know. Some of the questionable moves may be that alka Lou Kinda did here to make make it his own team but Brock Nelson now Mr Mr October four goals six assists ten points and your favorite stat plus minus zero. Yeah Yeah now It's it's unbelievable how he's able to do this and I you know I wonder. I don't know if you'll ever admit this but like I wonder if you know assigning that contract has made him sort of rethink things and I. It's definitely true. I mean he said it like Trots is has changed his game and I I think trots put the confidence in him to trust him in big spots that he might not have been before and so far it's paying off. I mean you know. It's funny like we all say. Oh Yeah Brock Tober because he scores auto points. But I think it's the the implication is that while he's eventually gonNA stop scoring once. The calendar turns November December. But last steer you know I mean he had he had a career best season and know. How many does he have now? It's like eight right or something like that or is it a four four hours. Got Four but You know I mean if he can if he can become just that consistent twenty twenty five gold guy that he seemed like he's he's always had in him and had been just you now now. There are other parts of his game. He didn't really care for. I mean that's that's exactly. What a guy making that much money? Dutt's discourse between twenty and twenty five goals and that's that's perfectly acceptable. The Second Line Center right there. Who who also responsible defensively while so can you know play in a power play and kill penalties and every once in a while and do all that so you know it's it's it's great and he's locked up for a for a good long time so I mean you can't ask for more than that but you know it's just funny like brock is is a sort of very unassuming kind of laid back guy and you know you just want to see him bust out and just keep brock tober going into bro Vendor? I guess in December Walker whatever you know we can whatever puns. We can come up with after that. You WanNa get scared. He's got ten points after eleven games so you do the what the pace he's on right now. Oh and that'll make you shake your head not saying that it's going to happen or it's even possible. Rife but that's like a one hundred ten point paste. Yeah Hey let's see you never know. But and then his contract would be a steal because one hundred ten point there you know. Obviously you go down the line Barzel has been shooting more. I know he recently changed his stick that he had spoken about. And I think Arthur had spoken about five goals four cysts. He's a plus seven Bailey. It just continues to Chug away for goals five assists You got the defense all over this list. TAVES boy chuck letty. We'll let let you could put on a performance for the day and Ottawa. So is number should be pretty up there. And he's got a penalty shot. I don't even know if that goals even is that even reflected in those stats because that's pretty crazy It should be. I also thought that it was amazing that he was the first islanders defenceman since Denny Pot van to score on a penalty unleash shot so yeah does that. Say I know why I mean he would have been the first since pod van to have a hat trick they had stayed up which is also we says a plot. So it's crazy. Why did Martin? But in the way there I don I don't know and then he got brisard kind of turn it on which I wanted to talk a little bit about you. The move to wing. I was a big proponent of this because it takes the defensive responsibility away when you get taken away from center. He was struggling a little bit. It seems like he's developed a whole bunch of chemistry with his fellow French connection there in Brasilia and also with Brock Nelson as. Well so I mean you look look if you look at that line and you know like we already spoken about Nelson has four goals six assists beauvilliers got two goals four cysts and Brisard has three goals and one assist so we were looking for that secondary scoring Last season and this line which I mean I guess you'd consider them the third line even almost right right. 'cause it's supposed to be I mean not that line specifically but Brisard was the third blind center prior to him moving around and they'd jumbled up stuff so it's kind kind of funny funny that there's no real I mean there's a number one obviously because bridal Lee and Bailey but right. Yeah I was GONNA say..

"The Isles. Faithful podcast with your host. Michael Shirley Line. Welcome back to the Isles Faithful. PODCAST I'm your host says always Michael Sherline and this. This is episode number thirty eight today is what is today. Wednesday Tuesday Tuesday October. Twenty ninth the week of Halloween scary very still brock Tober. He got one more game in joining me this week. Is Dan Saracini. You know him from Lighthouse Hockey. He has had some amazing using stories that he written over had written over there over the years. He also has a fantastic islanders. PODCAST himself which you know as is island raising Zaidi and we're GONNA talk about a couple of other new things. He's got going on over at Lighthouse hockey as we move into this episode. So Dan what's up. I much Mike how are you. I'm doing pretty well. It's a very strange having all these weird breaks so early in the season without islander's hockey. You know it's like like they tease you by giving you a little. Then they give you a little more than they take it away and then we're GONNA have three games in four nights again. It is weird I I don't know how schedule's like this get made but you know it in a way. It's Kinda cool 'cause I I feel like the islanders. Don't mind the practice time. And Uh if they come out of this break the way they came out of the last break though they should be pretty good As long as they don't get to the how what was their break. How long was there breaking In the playoffs wasn't it was almost like two weeks. Wasn't it was like ten days or something like that. It was like ten or eleven days or something that doesn't happen again. They'll be all right. Bud Light four days I guess is probably okay. Four days is fine. Gives them a chance to work on the power play and the penalty kill which has looked much better which will also get into with the ridiculous calls for or lack thereof. I think we should say But Yeah I mean obviously this year has gone pretty much the way that last year went. I mean maybe a little bit better of start We had Varma love and somebody Kinda told me they cringe every time. I would say that wrong. So I feel like Andrew Gross sometimes with the way that I mispronounced names but Varma has looked fantastic He had a couple of games where he struggled the little bit. But he's Kinda settled in grace's looked fantastic as well and You know they get. They're getting the defense. They're getting the goals in some aspects. I I think they look a little better here right out of the gate than they did last season. Oh Yeah for sure I mean it took them twenty games last year. I would say to to kind of start to not even not even embody what has come to be known. Barry Trots Islander's hockey but just to kind of look cohesive hockey team had some pretty bad games and I remember a couple of them. trots looked pretty exasperated. You know that kind of look like and we went over this. Why is this happening And they you know whatever ever points they got. Were almost kinda stolen by either grace or Robin Leonard who also was actually mostly Greis in October until lender started kind of getting in the act in November. But you now this season It's funny you mentioned Andrew Roses podcast but on on Arthur stapler mark parishes podcast Peres said something really interesting this kind of stuck with me. which is that you know in the first part of the game? I part of the season you just trying to collect wins like even the players are just sorta like you know it's GonNa take us a while to get into this until we get into a rhythm and so the fact that the islanders are picking up points is basically kind of what they want to do and the fact that over the last couple of games. They've looked like themselves From last year is probably pretty encouraging raging. I mean they were phenomenal against Philli For the most part and they were really really good against Would they play before In the they played really well and I totally forgot. Ah But yeah they they look at Phoenix Arizona. They look really really good against Arizona They they had them kind of running out of the building winging until the third period SOA now they've looked and then they played Ottawa the next night and look really good in there to all. That game was kind of a circus. Oh the fact that they look more or less like they look are supposed to look is pretty encouraging. And we're not even out of October you. It's fantastic to see. I mean there's been times already where I've been excited sighted to like sit through the entire game where there hasn't been like a stretch for more than five or ten minutes were like. Oh God here we go. You know in early on like like maybe the first week of the season like over the first couple of games you saw that but yet then you also saw glimmer of what eventually they would become here eight games or however many games into the season eleven games into the season so I think we really need to discuss right out of the gate is the seven wins in a row. And how that's the longest win streak for the islanders since one thousand nine hundred nine. I can't believe that I had I. I can't even believe I mean I. I know they've been pretty bad for the better part of two decades Dow. But you know that's crazy to me because I remember the beginning of the two thousand and one two thousand two season where they went eleven one in one in their first. You know whenever that is thirteen games I guess at no point. Did they win seven in a row at that and yet so that's pretty wild and it's funny in Reading Eric Cornicks stats. You know he did mention that As like the last time they really had a start like do not start. Start but a stretch like this and these sixteen points that they have is the highs total through eleven sin in the Cup or in the Post Cup era he said but then you also went on to say that you know the twenty points that you just mentioned were the only other time but it was an eleven consecutive wins. Yeah that's pretty wild and again Berry Trots said today. He's like we haven't even played our best and I'm just like we said yesterday on Monday and I'm just like man he gets like he just gets it you know. It's it's amazing that this team has won seven in a row and he's like yeah. We could do a little bit better better than this this. Okay sure I'll take. What is what is this feeling that I'm feeling right now and I was nodding as you were saying that Anna and now it's crazy it's crazy but and the the players I think? Say too like they all they all kind of Echo. What Berry says so yeah? It's it's been really cool and it's good to see and yeah a couple of those early winds might have been a little bit sloppy but I mean everybody kind of plays those games basically and so now you know you're trying to get running a shape and again like we said right off the top having that extra practice time is probably pretty cool because you know a lot of teams probably wish they had had that kind of that kind of practice time in the islanders got it and they wanNA use it so not only that they're at home here for you know most of these first eleven games. I mean. They had the little tiny road trip that they went on to Winnipeg but then they were in Columbus they were back. You know this way on towards the East Coast And then they've been back at home and they don't play at the Barclays. I don't think until I think was a Friday is the first year Barclay's Yeah for sure idea definitely November Our Friday's game on November first Friday. So Yeah Yeah they've done all this at the Coliseum and then go to the Barclays for a little while in the back of the kind of do it in chunks. Though I mean I don't even really WanNa talk about attendance Eh but I will say you know an and you didn't get a chance to listen to grossest podcast and they him in Jim bombeck went into that a a little bit with Some of the struggles that they they went through. And you know so far this year and then there's been you know the Sunday night games. Don't typically draw. Ah Very well I mean I know for me like we were just talking about. I have a long way to go and yes I do. I work on our way from home so she could. I spend the night at like my dad's who lives right by the calcium shirt. But it's a night away from my fans idols from the kids and you look at all these other people especially especially if it was a Barclays night. Seven o'clock in Brooklyn when all these people have to go to work. The kids have to go to school. I know for me getting back in one hour from the Barclays even even. I'm not getting to bed until after midnight by the time the train rolls in so. That's a tough thing to do. And then you have the Columbus Day where traditionally again not a very a good draw yes. The schools are closed but a lot of people have to work. I had to work as much as I work for. A school was working while I was sitting at home watching the game. Yes yeah yeah and it's funny. I talked about this with With Jeff Kelly the last episode which was like two weeks ago now. That's why the schedule. I'm sorry guys I know you want as much content as you could possibly get but we do have lives. You were sick. People get sick and I. That's true too I I did. I was not feeling well and And Yeah I I took literally like I up until yesterday I was still sniffling and sneezing and everything so almost two weeks weeks of being down. But you have all these people who who don't get off traditionally and and who's still have a lot of stuff going on so I I kind of understand in a sense. The reluctance to maybe dragged a family to a game on top of the fact that ticket prices are kind of ridiculous across the League. I mean you're even seeing gate drops ops in Canada and this is supposed to be candidates sport so You know I it. Just it's Mike Leave off and I talked about this on Ireland anxiety the day and we kind of have to like deal with the fact that this is the way it. It's and it's kind of always going to be that way..

I should've waited a few more episodes to episode thirty seven you can always come back. You let me know. We'll just make it just everything about number. Thirty seven are favored guy here. Mr presences. I introduced you the last time. Only because I was too slow to keep up with Bates you anywhere else. Speaking of Bates, how about that little odd to him at the call Sam less Friday how how was that? You know as hockey players never dry all brought a tear to buy that was just awesome that moments. You know, obviously Bates will be part of Ireland or lower forever from that one moment in that's those. That's exactly what you dream for as a player just to be part of something like that. Of course, we wanted to be Stanley Cup. But at the same time, you never know when that when the time when that moment might present himself present itself, and he took advantage of it. And what can I say I love that Boston? Boy. You know once islander always an islander. It doesn't matter whether you play your entire career here or you play bits and pieces of one season. Only do one great thing. It doesn't really matter. You're always going to be endured islander fans and always remembered as you know, very well yourself do and I can't thank that offense. Still in yourself. Everybody for the support. I still get for crying out loud. Boy, we were a long ways away from HD when I watched the videos of us in out to probably good thing is I probably would have got called goalie interference back then. But the game was different. But man, I can't thank you guys enough. It's. I honestly feel like an honorary New Yorker through this midwestern slow talk in boys. It's pretty special something I will hold near dear to my heart forever. I I love every second of it in every chance you get to be around islander's hockey is great. And I know since the last time we've spoken you're now an analyst on any channel network for everybody out there who can catch Mark stuff from time to time. I know he he tends to give us all heads up when he's going to be on. And it's awesome. The see you up there on the national stage. I I love it. It's it's the best excuse ever to tell my wife. I've got to do my homework and watch every game sweetheart and can't you know, it's not just the islanders was not just the wild year. Minnesota. I gotta watch every hockey game. It's it's my job. Now, the grace excuse just to watch hockey, which is probably why she posted the picture of you the other day in your crocs loves and stick watching. I just I I would love to kind of. Oh, I would love to watch every gimmick. But I just got brand new gloves. There was a charity gain the next day. I was kinda wanna see oh, they feel good break him in a little bit sneaky wifey. I would've taken the crocs off by not to take a picture, dude. Come on, they're comfortable. All right. I love crocs wearing the same pair right now. Look at least they weren't. If you're wearing eggs. I think everyone would have given you more of a hard time. Those those are only during the season because when the back starts getting sore socks suck. So you just throw to go to the practice. Mets. It another that nobody ever sees those. I always kinda felt a little bit kinda like my wife on those. You know, what my brother-in-law wears them all the time. And they look like construction boots almost when he's got his pants over them. But I still make sure buses chops. That's 'cause you love him. I mean, he's okay. If he's listening doubt he is. But he's okay. He's a cop. So I mean, you got a return. I love man. He's a good guy. He's a good guy. He he's he's a nerd. That's why we love him. So we all are absolutely certain different things. We're all nerds. I gonna give me going game of thrones not watched. And if we go down that road. This is going to be the least listened to episode. I'm sure.
