In the latest episode of PTIsles, Joe Buono (@IslesBlog) hoarse voice and all talks with Arthur Staple (@StapleAthletic) of The Athletic. Arthur talks about his new gig hosting the No Sleep Til Belmont podcast with Mark Parrish, the recent player polls he’s published during the break and how Mat Barzal handled his benching during All-Star Weekend.
Later, we discuss what Barzy’s next contract could look like, the understated impact of the Cal Clutterbuck injury and talk questions from fans on what the team will do before and at the deadline to improve the team.
Plus, Arthur tells us whether or not he thinks the Islanders will solidify a playoff spot in the ultra competitive Eastern Conference.
