Episode 33: Sweeping Up With Mark Parrish

Former New York Islander forward, current NHL Network analyst Mark Parrish has returned to The Isles Faithful Podcast for Episode 33!

UPDATED 4/22/19

There were TWO audio issues that I found, made a few mistakes when I put the episode together. They are now corrected, please make sure you refresh your podcast apps to get the correct audio file! Thanks!

In this episode, (an explicit version, I am sorry folks – it’s PLAYOFF hockey talk!) Mark and I talk about this unexpected run into the postseason. Something both of us totally saw happening when we first met up in episode 9. Mark also talks about his amazing NHL hockey bracket that is sure to impress everyone!

We talk about Robin Lehner and his amazing season, the Jennings Trophy win that he’s split with Thomas Greiss, and Lehner’s nomination for the Masterton and Vezina trophy’s.

We talk Trotz, the sweep over the Pittsburgh Penguins, Islanders history and how loud fans were last week at the Coliseum. We even talk about how ODD and UNFORTUNATE it is for a team that’s rolling as good as it is to have to change up routine and play at the Barclay’s center in the second round.

I mean, is there not a more Islanders type thing to happen to a team than that?

This episode is so chock full of great info, I am not doing it justice really. Give it a listen!

Mark and I have plans to revisit whatever happens with the Islanders moving forward – we also have plans for a special 37 for Number 37 episode as well. Should be fun!

Thanks again to Mark for coming on! You can follow him on Twitter @MarkDParrish!

Episode 9: Talking Isles Past, Present And Future With Mark Parrish

Episode 9 has been an absolute blast to put together.

Over the summer, Former NHL’er and New York Islander Mark Parrish was nice enough to answer some questions for a story I wrote about John Tavares – this was way before I decided to start a podcast. I reached out to Mark to see if he’d be interesting in coming on an episode – and boy did he provide!

We talked a variety of topics, from Da Beauty League in Minnesota, to his career with the Islanders, the past, present and even future surrounding the team. Mark has this amazing way of describing hockey and his enthusiasm for the game is extremely telling. I felt like I was talking to an old buddy, and we could’ve talked all night.

Also in this episode, we had speculated that Anders Lee would be a great Captain, little did we know when we recorded last night that the New York Islanders would name him their 15th Captain in team history today. Go figure.

We also talk Barzal, Bailey, Nelson and the bottom six forward that the Islanders have a ton of. We talk Trotz and Trottier plus all the other legends that played on the Island before him. It’s an episode I won’t ever forget and Mark is welcome back anytime – that’s for sure.

I also welcome back Mike Carver, of The Isles Seat Podcast – which you should also subscribe to!

We will see you in Episode 10, where we break down the Isles opener in Carolina against the Hurricanes. Shoutout to the @IslesMeetup_CLT crew going nuts down there along with @YesMenOutfitter providing all that sweet swag for the event!
