Tavares list just about finalized, it appears.

Leafs, Sharks, Stars are in, as mentioned a couple days ago. Believe the Bruins are in as well.

Canadiens and Vegas not on the list as of now.

#Isles will get in there too, of course.

Love the guy but (frank) no. If Toronto pays that it'll absolutely cripple their team and it will be without a cup at the end. A small part of me albeit a small one almost wants to see that happen. (frank) the Leafs.

Really the Leafs have tons of room next year and can offer JT a 1 year 15 + million dollar deal( the cab max) and have a deal in principle for 8 x 10 ( not in writing as that’s cap evasion) and now he has a 9 year 95 million dollar deal.

Yes, but if it's not in writing, then the Leafs can back out of it..........say if JT gets injured. Would not be a smart move by JT...

I would dare to predict that, if JT leaves, it will be for a Western Conference team. I don't think he'd want to listen to the Islander fan boos more than once a season.

The dollars difference between the offers will be a lot less than 80 million. Not saying it's the only factor, but it might be just enough to bump him out west.

Toronto is in the Eastern conference

I don’t see Dallas as a final destination. Sharks, Leafs, Isles Tampa and yes Boston makes sense. LA after signing Kovy are probs out.

4 are in the Eastern conference.

Just sayin.

That's 3 Einstein, not 4. I said "IF" he leaves the Islanders, so we're only talking about teams he might go to. Also, is Tampa one of the 5 teams interviewing him? I don't think I've heard their name.... Do they even have the cap room?

That's not goong to happen no player is going to risk millions doing a deal in principle. If he does he's a moron.

Absolutely. What player of his caliber is going to take a 1 year deal? Talk about mortgaging your own future? One injury (or re-injury) is all it takes for him to lose millions. He pops that knee again and there will be lots of questions about it when contract talks start up.

“My understanding is even as early as an hour ago the list was still a work in progress,” said McKenzie during a portion of the segment which aired around 8:50 a.m. EST. “Even though they’re going to start talking to teams this morning in Los Angeles. So I think there’s some floating and moving targets here, so you’ve got to be careful. I think teams could be easily deleted or added from so-called lists. And that’s not unusual in hockey. Everybody always says, ‘This is the list!’ and then you find out afterward it’s a floating, moving target.

“I think a lot of people feel like John Tavares could still end up with the New York Islanders, that this could be Steven Stamkos Part Deux, where the opportunity to talk to these teams only reinforces that he wants to go back to where he was.

Staple has Tampa and Nashville added to the list of potential meetings, too

Sounds like Tampa and/or Nashville could round out Tavares’ list of visitors starting Monday. Might end up being six teams instead of five, plus #Isles.

Obviously far from the biggest concern this week, but high draft-grades still nice to see:

Pronman:

Grade:​ A

The Islanders’​ Day 1​ was big for them, as​ they​ added two high-end talents in​ Oliver​ Wahlstrom​ and​​ Noah Dobson, with Wahlstrom, in particular, being a massive add to their system. In getting Bode Wilde and Ruslan Iskhakov on Day 2 right away, they got four of my top 20 prospects in the class. That’s a massive injection of talent and fundamentally changed the state of their farm system from being mediocre to one of the league’s strongest. Jakub Skarek was fine at No. 72, a little high for me but he was one of the top goalie prospects. The rest of their picks were a mixture of underwhelming to a shot in dark, but really, this was a great weekend for their future.


SportingNews:

New York Islanders
Grade: A

Does Lou Lamoriello know what he’s doing, or what? The guy’s been on the job for less than a month, and he struts out of Dallas with the best prospect haul of any of his 30 contemporaries. The Islanders were gifted both winger Oliver Wahlstrom (11th) and mobile defender Noah Dobson (12th), both of whom were expected not to last beyond the top 10 picks. Defenseman Bode Wilde (41st) is a thoroughbred with Scott Niedermayer’s quickness and aggressiveness, and Russian center Ruslan Iskhakov (43rd) is a deadly puck wizard who will make goalie look foolish in shootouts. Drafting Jakub Skarek (72nd) could turn out to be a third-round steal if the young netminder lives up to the billing of being the best Czech goalie prospect since Dominik Hasek. And a trio of American-born skaters in Jacob Pivonka (103rd), Blade Jenkins (134th) and defenseman Christian Krygier (196th) will add more speed and strength to New York’s prospect pool. Islanders’ fans will look back on Lou’s first draft with approval both today and five years down the road.

- nyisles7

problem is if he agreed to a one year deal he couldn't sign the extension until january 1st - so he's going to play october through december knowing an injury could result in losing 72 million dollars he could have guaranteed by signing with the isles for what, to sign a lower hit with the leafs for 8 years after taking all the risk himself?

the one year deal makes no sense imo.
