Only one.

Yeah and tavares is not that guy. Not even close imo. Tavares is a very good player McDavid WILL be the best player in the league for years. I have never seen a player like him.

JT sat out the world competition, because he did not want to risk injury before his big payday. I doubt he does the one year deal, because if he gets seriously injured before January 1st, he's screwed.
- JohnScammo


I heard he is refusing to watch tv or leave the house just in case of injury

You can take out insurance for that too.

Not chasing the story, so just hearsay: the hockey "insiders" I've talked to today think Tavares going to Toronto.

Yup. I think Patrick Kane money (10.5) is quite reasonable for JT, but I can’t blame the guy for taking more if some asshat is offering it.

You know someone will offer him a lot more than $10.5.

I he goes anywhere besides here I hope it's there because for some reason I know it won't work. The guy is way to cerebral and to me I think he'll absolutely implode in that environment. I say this knowing he's well aware of said environment BUT for some reason I think it'll just completely malfunction that team and man will it be fun to watch.

That would be one helluva insurance policy. JT would be risking close to $100 million.

Whether it's Toronto or not, I'm pretty convinced now that it's not the Islanders. So I don't really give a sh1t where he ends up.

The Isles already offered him $11 MM for 8 years, so you're right.

Absolutely but that "all I want to do is win with the islanders" mantra becomes a giant, steaming pile of poop at that moment. Mr sincerity has a new look from that point on and believe it or not I say this with no emotion thems just the facts

If he does that both him and his agent should euthanize themselves for being so dumb.

Yeah, I think that's one scenario that is the least likely outcome.

Watch him take $8.5MM to play with his buddy, Stamkos.

Stamkos signed two yrs ago for about $8.5. Whatever that value is in NY money, that’s what I equate JT to. So maybe $10/10.5 after taxes and two years later? He’s not McD money that’s for damn sure.

Maybe that’s what Chiefs is doing right now? He did track JT to a florist previously after all.

I remember that! He was spying on JT, peering between the petunias and the pansies.

Just remember: #TavaresWatch may not end tonight. #Isles would almost certainly be out if they can't offer eight years, which ends at midnight. But JT doesn't have to pick a team by then.


So stupid.

Exactly!

Memo to Art: If Tavares doesn't sign with the Isles, I don't care if he signs with the Pyongyang Pandas.

Who knows? Maybe that would appeal to JT? After all, he might like a trial run with Trotz as the head coach and Lou as the GM? He'll know by January if he likes the new regime. Otherwise, he can ask to be traded at the deadline. Everyone comes out ahead that way. Only downside is if he gets seriously injured, but Upstate has an insurance plan for him.
