The Islanders head to the All-Star break and bye week right where everyone predicted them to be, first place in the Metropolitan. The schedule has been grueling, 11 games through 22 days in January. It doesn’t get any easier as February’s schedule packs 14 games in 28 days.
The Athletic’s Justin Bourne joins the Isles Buzz to discuss the Barry Trotz effect, which players Lou Lamoriello should target at the trade deadline and gives his thoughts on John Tavares.
The first guest for the Isles Buzz live podcast has been announced. Nick Hirshon, author of “We Want Fish Sticks”, will join us. If you haven’t picked up your copy of Nick’s very entertaining book please do so on March 16 at the Offside Tavern. The show follows the 1pm game against the Detroit Red Wings. We will be there for the game.
