    Episode 118: Where there's smoke, there's fire; Islanders Closing in on Kadri?

    Episode 118: Where there's smoke, there's fire; Islanders Closing in on Kadri?

    After a week off, James and Jon get right back to it to discuss the topic of the day - Nazem Kadri. Rumors and reports are trickling out about Kadri's likelihood to sign with the Islanders, but nothing has been made official. Part of the issue is moving out potential contracts - like Josh Bailey - though more could be at play here. The guys discuss who else could be moved (J.G. Pageau) to not only make room for Kadri, but as part of a hockey trade to bring in a winger like J.T. Miller.

Great show!

Two weeks ago I was looking for an islander’s podcast, I listened to a bunch but nothing was as good as this one. The guys really know what they’re talking about and very knowledgeable about the young players in the islanders system. Great listen, really enjoy the podcast.

Excellent

Excellent commentary, in depth and insightful

Best Isles Podcast

These guys are the best.
Love their chat and shooting the breeze
Their analytics always have a fresh look and they complement each other very well.

And to be honest, I personally am not “interested” in some of the “sections” of their podcast and come from a different camp of thought, Nassaumen is still the only podcast I listen to weekly - they are that good.
