John Tavares is on his way home from L.A., so no chance for another face to face with Lamoriello. Wouldn’t expect to hear anything on a decision today. #TavaresWatch

Sounds like that boys gonna get paid. Not worth the price. Like him but no for what he's going to get.

He's heard their pitch......he doesn't need to hear it again. Especially if he's got no intention of signing here.

Nothing will stop the Canadian Tavares push

You know, like him where he is.

I’ll talk to the Prime Minister and see if we can’t close the border to him.

I wouldn't sign him for more than 4 and 4. He will get more term and money and to me someone else can pay that.

Only the ones in B.C., Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec and portions of Labrador. The rest of us are pretty chill.

I haven't been feeling positive all day with it so this doesn't help

Some will down play it but it seems pretty significant to me. Whatever is what it is I'll still go to bed tonight and wake up tomorrow... I hope

Is Tavares still thinking? This is like waiting for my wife to decide what color we should paint the living room.

I think I read Larry Brooks say something like "how many times has JTs camp met with Lou in the past month. Having one more meeting isnt going to sway him at this point"......he knows where hes going.

The reality is if he believed in the isles going forward, he woulda signed by now. Listening to other/"better" offers screams he's outta here. IMHO

If JT leaves, I sign JVR and put him on the 2nd line with Bailey and Lee with Bailey as center and make the Barzal line the #1 line. Work on the 3rd line and get at least one dman and a goalie and go to war next year.

He has known where he was going for the last few months at the very least. If he doesn't stay he'll say, "It was a really tough decision and the Islanders were in it to the end but..." blah blah blah bullshat like everything else he said for the last year. Some will mop it up like its gospel but he knew and knows exactly where he's going.

Well I’ve only actually met one person from Labrador, and she certainly was a female dog so... sure.
