The John Tavares camp could start informing a few teams as early as Friday morning that they're no longer in the running... beyond that hard to say when the UFA centre for sure will be ready to pick his team. Obviously if it's the Isles that call is no later than Saturday...

By Arthur Staple 20m ago 12
John​ Tavares​ flew home​ to​ Toronto on​ Thursday, which meant​ there​ was​ no​ second​ face-to-face meeting​ with the Islanders​​ in Los Angeles. There’s nothing to read into that — it appears only that Tavares is ready to wrap this process up by either signing with the Islanders before Saturday at midnight or heading into the great unknown on Sunday at noon.

In fact, the Islanders will almost certainly know by Friday whether Tavares is staying for eight years and somewhere between $92-100 million. That sort of contract takes time to finalize, so with the midnight deadline on Saturday looming — after that, Tavares is considered an unrestricted free agent and cannot get the eighth year from the Isles anymore — Tavares and his camp will let Lou Lamoriello know on Friday to either start the contract process or say goodbye after nine seasons.

Tavares reportedly was impressed by the thorough pitches from all six teams: The Leafs, Islanders, Sharks, Bruins, Lightning and Stars. It’s believed that, should Tavares walk away from the Isles, it’s the Sharks and Leafs at Nos. 1 and 2 on his list; San Jose has the same quiet surroundings as Long Island to go with a bevy of veterans, a strong goaltender and a situation far away from the Islanders.

The Leafs have their young stars, a coach in Mike Babcock whom Tavares highly respects (of course, he has that now too with the Islanders in Barry Trotz) and the possibility of a one-year max offer of around $16 million for next season before a possible eight-year extension at a more modest number afterwards.

There will be untold millions to come in any deal Tavares signs. The tax implications vary and have been discussed, but this is not strictly about money. Tavares wants to win and he has to believe that the additions of Lamoriello and Trotz accelerate the Islanders’ timeline after the last two dismal seasons. If he does, he stays. If not, he’s gone.

We will know soon enough.

— Thomas Hickey was back on Long Island on Thursday, helping out Matt Martin at his former teammate’s youth hockey camp at Northwell Health Ice Center.

Hickey declined to get into specifics regarding his impending free agency, but it appears there’s only minimal interest from the Islanders on the 29-year-old defenseman. With a painfully thin free-agent market for defensemen that’s further thinned by the reported deal for Jack Johnson with the Penguins, Hickey is going to be a coveted player on Sunday. His 24 points are tied for second among all FA defensemen.

He did not specify the teams that have reached out this week but it’s expected to be a wide range. Hickey is coming off a deal that averaged $2.2 million per year, with a $3.1 million salary last season. If he gets a three- or four-year deal in that $3 million range it wouldn’t be a surprise.

— The goalies going to market on Sunday are already seemingly finding destinations. Carter Hutton, in whom the Isles have interest, reportedly visited the Sabres and may be headed there on a three-year deal. Cam Ward has been connected to the Hawks and Jonathan Bernier to the Red Wings.

If those three are already ticketed, that leaves Petr Mrazek, Robin Lehner, Jaroslav Halak and Kari Lehtonen as one-time No. 1 goaltenders on the market. Perhaps this quiet from the Islanders means Lamoriello is working the trade route to find a goaltender since the UFA group is even weaker than before.

My ever-evolving odds of JT re-signing with the Isles.....

End of regular season........ 40%

Isles hire Lou and Trotz...... 60%

JT announces he's meeting with 5 other teams........50%

JT declines to meet again with Lou................45%

Better keep that cheap gin within close reach....

This guy is predicting that JT re-signs with the Isles for $13+ million per season for 8 years. They do that, and they will be destined for mediocrity the duration of that contract, because they won't be able to pay the other guys on the team what they deserve..........unless the cap suddenly explodes.

Big thanks to Vukota for leading me to your forum. It's been a lonely week not having anything to read. WTF. Gonna go back a few pages to catch up...I've sold myself on JT leaving, which at this point I don't even care. If he signs for more than $10.5/yr Mil - which I'm guessing he will based on all the attention he's gotten- I'm not sure I'd want him. 16th overall in pts last yr at 84, McDavid 1st with 108. He makes 12.5M.

No way is JT worth 13 mill. 11 is more than fair.

If he gets 13M, better not be from Lou, We'll be F'd. Actually I hope TB or Toronto pays him that, will open up some of their players to cherry pick...

In no universe should JT make more than McDavid! If the Isles did not have Barzal, maybe you have to give JT the money and even then it's a heck of a lot to give JT.
