Dan and special guest Carey Haber take an analytics-focused at the Islanders’ season and potential offseason moves.

They discuss the team’s MVPs, their now solidified defense and which players had underrated seasons. Later, they examine the team’s pending free agents, how each of them fits into the larger picture and what, if any, contingency plans exist.
