Islanders Anxiety Art

Dan and special guest Carey Haber take an overview of how the Islanders have performed so far this season.

They look at the team’s “Identity Line” and the domino effect their performance can have on the rest of the players, lament the rotating cast of wingers that have plagued Jean-Gabriel Pageau and examine the slow starts of Josh Bailey and Brock Nelson. Later, they praise the evolution of Mathew Barzal and the Islanders’ top defensive pair, while spotlighting the team’s biggest areas of concern.
