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.

I'd love it if he made all the other teams wait until October

Unfortunately yes. The 3C position is pretty weak between the 2 squads.

Also if I put Nuge as 3C, then I gotta slot in Lucic or Ladd.

Put Beauvillier where you have Nuge, move Nuge to 3C, and rotate Ladd and Lucic on the 3rd line, depending on how much truculence you are expecting from your opponent..

So is this guy saying no to the islanders without actually saying it? Losing massive respect for this guy by the second. Really ripping the bandaid off.

Were getting there. The last three and one-half ours of JT’s tenure as an Islander. I can’t believe this is being dragged out like this. His mind must be made up. It’s peobably been made up for days, and his mind made up to leave the Islanders has probably been made up for months. It would be nice if he’d put the isles and the rest of the sweepstakes losers out of their misery already.

I agree. This whole process has been handled in a way that basically flipped the isles and their fans the middle finger. It’s like a passive-aggressive gutless way to say “no”. JTs thinking is along the lines of “if I don’t sign by midnight, they’ll get the hint that I don’t want to sign with them, so it’ll be easier for my agent to tell them ‘no’ when he calls the isles”

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.

100% agreed........its too much. Its bittersweet and really it would be the end of the Snow era. Im only pissed that he led them on, and will leave for nothing in return. Not really Captain esq if you ask me

Staying or going, he’s being decidedly Richardish. I find it pretty hard to believe that he hasn’t made up his mind.
