Mike and Dan channel Jeff Marek and Elliotte Friedman to talk about the Islanders' long awaited acquisition of forward Zach Parise. Beginning with audio of the 2003 NHL Entry Draft and the Islanders' decision to pass on Parise at the time, they discuss what he can bring to the roster now and what it means for this version of the team to sign a 37-year-old former All Star looking to win a Stanley Cup with one of the teams his father played for. They also talk about the Islanders' checkered history with Long Island natives, how they stack up among their Metro Division rivals this coming season and how nice it is to fly under the radar because you're consistent. And it's all done in loving tribute (uh, mostly) to Sportsnet's invaluable 31 Thoughts podcast.
