If JT walks, we’re going to need all the prospects we can get, because the isles will be starting a new rebuild, this time with people in place who actually know how to build a championship team

Agreed it's kind of a double edged sword or a catch 22. Damned if you do damned if you don't. Sticky situation Snow left for Lou.[/img]

Ek reads what we read and then writes a source told me so blog. Reminds me of our new kinder and gentler Blogger BDG

Seriously the Leafs could offer JT 15 million for 1 year to join The Leafs with a deal in principle for 8, 9, 10 million for another 8 after that for a total 9 year deal. Not on paper because it would be circumventing the Cap but it’s possible.
There hasn’t been a Talent like JT as a FA in years and if he gets there the market price could be crazy.

I have a funny feeling if he goes to Toronto he'll regret it by December. The guy is by all accounts an introvert. Good luck wish him the best

No, what you say makes sense. But could we hold off dealing with the hypothetical of what happens if JT leaves? The Isles don't pay me enough to worry THAT much....
- JohnScammo


Fair enough. The Isles have conditioned me to prepare for the worst.

12 to 15% of the Cap. McDavid signed for 16.5 % I believe.

OVs contract is for 13 years and when signed was ~19%.

How did you arrive at 11 and that’s it?

- nyisles7

Mcdavid is literally the definition of generational no matter his number comparisons that'll change with the tire fire that is Edmonton. If you watch him play ever you know that. I love Tavares but he is NOT that player.

If JT doesn’t sign I think that you will see a retooling for sure, however I think L & M want to win now so who knows.
That said if JT signs which I think he will they will go all in to become a cup contender, using assets to trade for needed pieces and also get rid of some bad contracted players.
Going to be interesting to see what happens.

- nyisles7

Yeah going to be interesting which way they go? A competent GM and coach will go a long way but there's a ton of holes to fill but I think Lou can do it smartly I'm keeping the faith.

I have the same problem but no matter how this turns out I think it's putting rose colored glasses on right now thinking there's no reason to be crapping ourselves for either overpaying him or losing him

- Cptmjl


At this point I'd guess it'll be one of those two options. I mean, unless Lou threads the needle here and convinces Tavares to re-sign at a discount. Tavares holds all the cards and I can't see why he'd decide to leave millions per year on the table unless he fanatically buys into the vision. But who knows...I couldn't believe he signed the last contract

Why would the Islanders want Anderson? His numbers were even worse than Halak's last year and he is older.

Thats what his comparables are getting now he will get a bit more as it's a bidding war but that's why hes doing this. 13% is what he should get by way of production, however he will probably get more around 15.

Hes earned the right to listen to teams and he should. Do I want him to resign, yes but staple talking about 12 million uhhhhhh idk about that
- Upstate_isles

I’m not begrudging him for listening to offers. He has every right to and after the circus he put up with since he was drafted, I can’t blame him. But the fact that he’s listening to other teams means he’s not sold on returning and possibly already has decided to leave. He has every right to make whatever decision he feels best.

Well either sign him for what the market bares or lose him for nothing. If your talking about a Cap hit of 10 to 12 for your franchise player what’s the difference if it’s 10 or 12. If you want JT to stay then your gonna have to pay him or someone else will.
- nyisles7

I’d pay him $12M per and not even blink (I know, easy for me to say, it’s not my money). You don’t let a player of JT’s caliber about to enter his prime walk away over a million or two per season.

Meh. Why not 13 or 14 then? Same thing with the useless and stupid, unnessecary Mayfield and Pelech contracts. Whats a million hwre or there? It adds up and eight years is a long time... He's not that player no mattwr how much I love the guy and I would be willing to bet that barzal IS that guy and I'm more concerned with being able to sign him and if that 1 or 2 million may or may not prohibit that then Tavares can go much to my dismay. If he's all about winning he should understand that signing one of the most lucrative contracts in NHL history will seriously prohibit that from happening.

I respect the guy he was left a shat filled diaper there's only so much he can do in a few months. He has done a lot and if Tavares leaves it's certainly not his fault.
