Episode 16: Talking Power Outage And More with Arthur Staple

12/5/2018
More
I have been going on, and on, and on - for what seems like weeks now about this power-less power play of the New York Islanders. It didn't seem like long ago that we had a fantastic power play, but horrendous everything else....but such is life around here in Islanders country, right? We have top notch coaching now, we have top notch management and ownership. We're about to have a state-of-the-art arena, which feels really strange to type - but it's true. Why can't we have a well playing...

Episode 15: Talking With Nick Hirshon, Author of We Want Fish Sticks

11/30/2018
More
We are back with another episode, Episode 15 - and this time we sat down for a chat with the Author of the soon-to-be-released book "We Want Fishsticks", Nick Hirshon. Before I get into the book talk, I offer a rundown of all the games over the Thanksgiving break and some hard hitting analysis as always. I got pretty amped up this week, as the Islanders powerplay is fair to middling - to say the least. Nick isn't just an author, he's a college professor who wrote his college thesis on -...

Episode 14: Isles Talk With Wayne From Kings Coast Coffee

11/16/2018
More
Hello there Isles Faithful! We are back with another episode where we talk puck, coffee (a podcast staple) and a slew of other topics. Episode 14 features Wayne Cafariella of Kings Coast Coffee, a local small batch coffee roaster who tells me his caffeinated goodness is enjoyed by Islanders players and broadcasters alike. Earlier this week I noticed that Brendan Burke posted up a picture of Kings Coast and I joked that I was insanely jealous and pondering my life coffee choices. Really...

Episode 13: Throwing Shade on Nick Leddy

11/9/2018
More
It's been a bit since we've last spoken and a lot has transpired in that time. The Islanders would go on a five game win streak and catapult to the top of the Metro Division, but would eventually lose in a shootout to the Montreal Canadiens and last night in regulation to the Lightning. They have a respectable record of 6-2-2 over the last ten games and 8-5-2 so far this season, still in first place in the Metro division. That's not to say it's been all roses during that time either,...

Episode 12: Remembering Charles Wang

10/26/2018
More
It's been a tough week in Isles country, there's not many ways to sugarcoat it. It started last weekend with a tough loss to San Jose, the last of the West Coast trip. That game was a tough, physical grind that saw the real Sharks team that many thought they would be when the Islanders shut them out a week prior. It had everything, physicality, drama, fighting, ejections - the whole nine. By the time the Islanders woke up on Sunday, they - along with everyone else learned that former...

Episode 11: We Talk Isles With Fans on Discord

10/19/2018

Episode 11 is upon us! I decided to switch things up this week with something I have hinted at the last few weeks - The Discord Channel! Special thanks go out to Isles Reddit user Nick, for all the help setting up permissions last night! The Discord channel allows users to essentially listen in to the podcast LIVE and even PARTICIPATE if they would like, much the same way callers would to a live radio show. There is also a chat room where you can share links, tweets and even photos and...

Episode 10: Why The Islanders Might Be Good, With Rob Taub

10/11/2018
More
I am sure there's a saying for this - but, current events get old really quickly when you don't get it out fast enough. I guess that's why other aspects of the media are so quick to push out content without much fact checking or even editing. Not here, though. Here at The Isles Faithful we like to sit on pre-recorded content to the point that it sounds like it's a year old! That's a joke, but news gets old quick in Islanders Country these days. Welcome to Episode 10 of The Isles Faithful...

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

10/4/2018
More
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...

Episode 6: Talking Robin Lehner with Joe Yerdon of The Athletic

9/14/2018
More
This week, we were blown away with a bombshell by new Islanders goaltender Robin Lehner. Turns out, the last few years he has been suffering through an addiction, and mental illness. This all came out yesterday, in a story he wrote himself for The Athletic. It's worth a read, and - there's no paywall for the article. It's so important that they have chosen to make it free for everyone. Mental illness is no joke, neither is addiction. Lehner does a fantastic job of speaking of all these...

In episode 4 we speak to Mike from @Islesmeetup_CLT and he tells us about his group down in North Carolina - its a rabid group of transplanted New Yorkers.

We're giving away one of those shirts here as well! a Rafflecopter giveaway I also speak a little about Trotz and Lamoriello recently brining up analytics which is on the heels of our episode...

The Culture Club: Not Your Father’s Islanders TIF0002

The Culture Club No - not the Boy George led band of the 1980's and not even the awesome Club in Downtown Manhattan that bares the same name. We are talking about the culture club WITHIN the New York Islanders. Let's take it back a few months here. Clean out Day, April 9th 2018 - An unshaven and honestly disheveled looking Garth Snow feebly addresses the media, Doug Weight, with a sour look on his face attempts to do the same. Jon Ledecky reads, angrily - from a pre-written letter claiming...
