Not quite sure about this one. Did JT in fact go to Snow and ask not to be traded? Or is that just one of those internet rumors?

Not yet. BD probably knows, however.

I understand the people who are pissed at the JT situation, but I’m not one of them. I’m pissed at Snow for never surrounding him with talent, and more pissed at the owners. They should have canned Snow as soon as they took over.

When JT wasn’t signed to an extension last year I figured he would play the year out and then listen to offers. It’s very rare for any pro athlete to say “I’m not sure where I’ll sign when my contract is up”.

Malkin and Ledecky should have done this 2 years ago. Too little too late.

I wish JT would stay but I’m not mad or surprised that he’s listening to offers.

Listening to offers is one thing. Agonizing over them is something else.

Negotiating for what and from whom? Money does not seem to be the issue. All the negotiating ploys in the world won't give Long Island the climate of Tampa or San Jose.........or turn Long Island into his hometown.

If that were true then he would have announced his intentions. I don't believe he is sitting there flipping through his binder weighing pros and cons.

Isles can pay him the most but if he wants a team to match it he holds out like he is doing. I think hes gone and I've been one of the hes staying guys the entire time. (Usually when I change like this the opposite happens immediately)

Could the wait be in getting Lou to trade his @NYIslanders rights to get the 8th year from another club? #Tavareswatch

Yes, but maybe he's trying to get them to pay a little more where he can still keep the 8th year. This is all speculation, I have no idea what's going on. I just think it would be weird if he didn't already have a plan.

No, only the Isles can offer him an 8th year. If you want to know the details of the CBA, go to BD's board and read the posts from Atomic Wedgie.

If his rights are traded that team can sign him for 8

Wrong. The CBA says only the team who owned his rights at the trade deadline can give him an 8th year.

Go to Atomic Wedgie post of 1:17 pm to click on the terms of the CBA. I tried to copy and paste it, but it doesn't seem to work.
