Islanders Anxiety Art

Mike and Dan chat about the Islanders mostly successful weekend and talk to Arthur Staple about his new book “100 Things Islanders Fans Should and Do Before They Die.”

The hosts recap two good periods and one bad one in Minnesota, three periods of unfiltered “Islanders Hockey” in Winnipeg and 50 minutes of “The Sorokin Show” in Montreal, that apparently still isn’t enough to get anyone’s attention.

Later, they welcome Staple to ask about how the Islanders have fared in their first 10 games and about his book, which covers the full gamut of the franchise’s ups and downs in easily digestible bites. They ask what facts surprised him, who he able to speak to and how the project came about at just the right time.

Finally, Art sheds a little bit of light on what might be coming to the Islanders (and, uh, other guys) coverage at The Athletic a little later this season.
