Is there any word on possible offers from the lightening or the sharks? Like term or amount?

There's no word on anything whatsoever. If you read anything that claims to be from an anonymous source with "information" it's fake. Until Staple/Gross or one of the big Canadian media guys says something happens or report on hearing something from a source...it's all speculation or flat-out lies.

The money isn't the interesting part of this. He's going to get a massive deal. Probably over $12M no matter where he signs, including here.

If he gets 12m or more I really hope it’s not with the Isles.

May as well either prepare yourself for it or just hope he leaves then, because I'll be floored if his cap hit comes in under $12M. If it's $11M then they made out like bandits.

Don't be surprised to see him get 8 years, $100M which is a cap hit of $12.5M.

I’ve already moved on from him. He’s just never been elite enough for me. I know he’s damn good, but I’d take Barzal any day if I had to choose. I realize small sample size on Barzy, but that kid is the real deal and he flys. Tavares to me has never skated well, even after improving. And anytime he’s matched up with Crosby, he loses. So to pay him McDavid money (even though cap adjusted not the same) to me is absurd. Bye bye JT.

Wouldn't be surprised at all. And it's not unfair. Cap is gonna keep going up anyway so it becomes a little less burdensome probably ever year.

I don't think that was ever reported

Maybe speculated on, but I don't believe there was any hard-deadline.

Well why don't teams just play in five buildings then? I don't think multiple home buildings is something I'd put in the "positive" or "neutral" column when you're selling someone on coming to the Islanders. I think these guys are professionals and probably want a professional atmosphere. If they're signing a 5 or 6 year contract, that's one thing...it's a longer term and there's Belmont on the horizon. But, say, a 2 or 3 year deal? If I'm choosing between the Isles and another team with competent management and coaching, I'm going to need that situation explained to me, and if the other team's selling me on a state-of-the-art arena that's not a concept drawing, they'd probably have the edge.

Good chance most of the games will be at the Coli. If not it's still only two years and it's NY and most teams cannot match having Lou and Barry so these Nancy players should suck it up for two years. Many people have to travel 3 hours at day to work.

Thats the thing though, if given the choice why would you chose this situation of Brooklyn and all the travel, when he can prob pick a place like San Jose, and be 30 min from anywhere, living an easier/nerdier life?

The one good thing if he does stay is I’m excited to see what Trotz could do to improve his game. I feel he had a Huge impact on Ovi from a maturity and defensive zone responsibility, and his overall game. Maybe he could do the same with JT.

Friends he has on this team that he feels loyal to or that he wants to be the captain that leads the isles back. Lost of stuff besides just weather and easy commutes

What all travel and I'm not even talking about just JT? What's the excuse going to be with Belmont when it's not in the heart of the city?
