Islanders Anxiety - Episode 215 - And Then It Went to Hell

So much for “Cautiously encouraged.”

Islanders Anxiety Art

The Islanders drop three games in a row and Mike and Dan aren’t happy about it, or about their upcoming schedule of difficult opponents.

They discuss all of the many things that went wrong against the Devils, Lightning and Panthers that have left the Islanders at 2-4 and looking very much like the disjointed, ineffective mess they were last season. After a summer of almost no changes and talking up how last year was a fluke, the players and management have done nothing to prove otherwise, leaving fans distraught and angry as another season teeters on the brink before the first month is over.

In the second half, they look at upcoming games against quality competition in the Rangers, Hurricanes and Avalanche, and how the Islanders would need to win at least two in order to get back on track.

Finally, they tie a bow on the return of the Fisherman logo and how fans reacted to the rollout. Remember: a logo does not define who you are as a person.
