The New York Islanders self-destructed against the Washington Capitals was the latest in an awful streak of bad play to start 2023. With just two wins this month - against the Vancouver Canucks and Montreal Canadiens - the Islanders continue their fall out of the playoff race. Scoring slumps, injuries, and a lack of leadership are just some of the main concerns. Will general manager Lou Lamoriello make a move by the trade deadline? Are the Islanders one or two moves away from being a real Stanley Cup contender?
All this and more in this week's episode with hosts James and Jon.
