In a massive episode about many topics, Carey Haber joins Mike and Dan to establish where the Islanders sit after a trade deadline in which they made no moves. Andrew Ladd and Thomas Hickey are back, but what about their other secret weapon? (no, not the ghost of Dennis Seidenberg)

Later, the hosts reckon with John Tavares’s return to Nassau Coliseum as a Maple Leaf and the many possible backlashes that may occur.

Finally, they look ahead to an important week for the Islanders, breeze through the team’s recent Western Canadian trip, ponder the best intermission interview subjects, and plea for kindness to fans of the Ottawa Senators.
