Islanders Anxiety Art


Mike and Dan are joined by Arthur Staple of The Athletic to talk about the Islanders’ standing, the trade deadline and what inquiring minds around the NHL are saying about them.

They cover Barry Trotz’s influence, Lou Lamoriello’s potential plans and what the tenor of the locker room is after a very successful first three-quarters of the season. Later, Mike and Dan fret over the team’s upcoming schedule, reminisce about Mathew Barzal’s first All Star Game and debut the NHL Name of the Week.
