Dallas and Tampa will meet tomorrow with John Tavares and his reps. At this point, there are no additional meetings or phone calls planned.


Sounds like tomorrow will be the final day of meetings for him. I hope he makes a decision quickly, but I have a feeling that it will drag out into the weekend.

Again there are players that are similar but for what ever reason those 3 clicked as a unit. I like reeves, he could come here and fit in perfectly. You just know what Cal, CC and MM did together. It’s proven. Most teams and free agents find that out the hard way.

Meh, you fell for the hype, 7. Don Cherry started calling them the best 4th line in hockey, and it was kind of picked up by the media. They led the NHL in hits during the regular season. But then they disappeared in the playoffs when you need them the most.

Me too Chief, I think unless someone blows him away we here that he stays on Friday ala Stamkos.

Oh and btw, they will praise Dallas and Tampa for their professionalism as well.

No 100% she lives in Canada. Mississauga hospital as a physiotherapist. She only here during the season once in a while.

Oh I believe you, I just find that to be absolutely bizarre.

Again, most teams and free agents find out the hard way that your team, team mates and line mates are a big part of your success.
- nyisles7

Sure they are, and I'm not ignoring team or line chemistry. I just think between Don Cherry and Butch Goring (E=MC2), there was more hype about that line than actual effectiveness.

I guess we'll just have to agree to disagree....

So I guess it's good he didn't say he was impressed with our interview?

Maybe, but put yourself in his shoes (skates?). Sure, he made some mistakes at the NHL level, but he also proved he skates better than any forward on the team other than Barzal. The team is challenging for the top of the Division with him there. Then he gets demoted, and the team plummets out of the playoffs altogether. He has Dumb and Dumber for coaches on the Island and in Bridgeport, respectively, so he gets a little frustrated. Who wouldn't?

Nino got mishandled, too. Do we see a pattern?

Ho-Sang needs to grow the f**k up and stop acting like a baby, if he’s pissed he’s at “prospect” camp. Instead of pouting, go out there, blow everyone away and be someone the prospects can look up to. That’s his best ticket back to the NHL, not acting like a child

Toronto may be the 3rd largest metro area in canada and the u.s. but nyc is the biggest, she can find a job here

80-20 he stays.

I hope he’s right, but I’m not nearly as confident. I hope I’m way off with my feelings on JT staying or going.

Nah JS, they were the best 4th line in hockey and were a big part of the teams success. Plain and simple, I don’t fall for smoke and mirror BS. This whole board said anyone can be plugged into the 4th line and they won’t miss a beat. The fact is that that was wrong. They totally sucked ass, offensively, defensively and also in theeffectiveness in changing the flow of the game.

They were used at the end of 1 goal games to close them out. Very dependable on both sides of the ice, and very dependable.

This is how rumors get started. It was reported that he and a couple other guys are not playing at prospect camp due to some minor injuries. Where did you get that he's acting like a baby?????

Hopefully JT does not become a diva with all this attention.
- ses111

He won’t. It’s not in his character. The last thing I worry about with JT is his character.

I read one thing that said it was just Trotz and lameriello pretty sure snow had nothing to do with it which isn't exactly surprising considering he hasn't been allowed to negotiate with him since the onset

I didn’t realize the isles have around $30M in cap space right now. Even if JT re-signs and does so for $11M-$12M per, they still have a bunch of money to work with. Could wind up getting some real solid pieces to add to this team, while keeping JT in the fold. That, plus the draft they just had would make this a helluva summer
