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 NHLNames.com NHL Name of the Week.
- Thanks again to Art for coming on with us. Here’s his list of possible free agent targets.
- A sample of the praise Mathew Barzal got from All Stars at Saturday’s game:
Sidney Crosby called Mathew Barzal the best 3-on-3 player in the NHL because of how he can hold onto the puck, beat you with speed and beat you one-on-one. "Watching him out there against the best and I don’t see anyone that really beats him in that category."— Dan Rosen (@drosennhl) January 27, 2019
- Remember this name: Kaapo Kakko.
