Mike & Dan discuss the recent re-signing of Brock Nelson and three Islanders-related inductees to the IIHF Hall of Fame.
They go over the context of Nelson’s new deal (which might be ignored by those outside the Islanders bubble) and what it means for the team’s offseason. They also fawn over Noah Dobson, who won his second straight Memorial Cup and remains a potential game-changer for the franchise.
In the second half, they recount the Islanders careers of Zigmund Palffy, Miroslav Satan and Jorgen Jonsson, all of whom were inducted to the IIHF Hall of Fame based on their international success.
- Carey on the good and bad and middle of Brock Nelson’s new contract.
- Nice work, Noah.
- Here’s the video of the 2019 IIHF Hall of Fame ceremony. Palffy is first, Jonsson is third and Satan is last but the whole thing is less than an hour long. Congratulations to all of the inductees.
