Mike and Dan discuss the highs and lows of the Islanders’ trip through the three California NHL teams, the areas the team needs to improve on and maybe looking at a couple of players differently after a few games.

Later, they ponder the complex legacy and lasting impact of Charles Wang, the former Islanders majority owner who passed away on October 21st, 2018.
