Episode 22: Breaking It All Down

I have really dropped the ball this week, and for that I apologize. The nine day break aside, this last week I intended to record a few times, but I was exhausted – but enough of that.

The podcast is BACK folks, and it’s back in a big way. We recorded TODAY, we will be recording TOMORROW and again Tuesday and Wednesday next week. It’s going to be a test of my time magement skills for sure – but it’s exciting and worth it. You guys and your support are worth it as well!

Episode 22 features the great opinions by @JPinVA and we talk about everything that’s transpired over the last four games. (Hey did you know the Isles are in first place of the Metro?). JP and I also go into the power play, goaltending, defense – Hickey and Ladd close to returning and more.

We talk about Dal Colle, we talk about Barzal and some of the prospects down in Bridgeport. We also go into some talk about coaching again and how these Islanders are really doing all of the right things compared to last season and seasons before that. It’s really exciting, and it’s hard to control emotions.

I joked around on Twitter yesterday, even – how I am not really sure how to deal with all the positives around the team right now, it’s a pretty confusing sensation if we’re being honest.

I also had stumbled across this masterpiece yesterday as well – you should follow my advice and watch it!

I also have some HUGE podcast news!

Jillian Fisher who is an extremely popular and funny YouTuber is going to be on the show next week. You probably guessed that with the reference early in this episode. Check out her Twitter, Website and YouTube channel. Seriously do it right now.

I also have Twitter user SeanCon coming on – he’s the guy featured on the MSG Commercials drawing the awesome works on Islanders players. But, that’s not even all of it – I also have Mark Parrish coming back next week to talk about where the team is at this point. It’s an exciting time for sure.

JP and I also talk about the rapid approach of the trade deadline and what could happen with that and the eventual decisions with free agency as well. Give a listen and let me know what you think!

If you haven’t already -please sign up for The Isles Faithful Newsletter. It will be chock full of interesting tidbits and insider podcast information that I will use to give you a heads up on guests and plans before I talk about them anywhere else. We will not spam you, so don’t worry there!

Episode 19: Just One Shot With JPinVA

Hello and welcome Episode 19! This week I am joined by a co-host from Twitter @JPinVA – JP and I have gone back and forth with some spirited Islanders discussions over the last few months and it’s been some good talk. I wanted to have him on for several episodes now and we finally found a time that worked for both of us.

We discuss the winning streak the Islanders ended with a loss last week against Carolina, the struggle they had against St Louis and the Rangers, despite stealing wins in regulation and the play of the kids Ho-Sang, Toews and Dal Colle. We also go into some talk on what to do with Eberle, Lehner, Nelson and some other pending UFA’s and it Lou will do anything with trades down the stretch to the trade deadline. As the title suggests as well, we also reference the one shot/one goal from the game against the Rangers on Thursday and what it will take to play their best tomorrow against Tampa.

We also take some off your Twitter questions, speak in detail about what can help the power play, how Barry Trotz has transformed players like Barzal, Nelson and the defense in general into something we’ve not seen in ages. I also hint at an upcoming guest, and congratulate the Isles Meetup guys for the creation of their own website NYIMeetups.com – head on over there to check it out!

We will be back with Episode 20 either Monday or Tuesday! Stay tuned!
