Right after the New York Islanders acquired the home of the future, the John Tavares contract talks amongst the fans and media began to heat up.

Once the New York Islanders locked up Belmont Park, the next issue left to tackle is the John Tavares contract. At the end of the year, Tavares can either extend with the Islanders or chose to walk in free agency.

You would think that with the Islanders new stable arena plan, Tavares would be more likely to re-sign. Well, Darren Dreger doesn’t think so.

In fact, he has a different theory based on…feelings

"“I don’t know why I feel this way because Tavares has never said this to me directly. I’ve never heard this from Brisson or anyone deeply associated with him. I think that Tavares would like to play for the Montreal Canadiens.”"

If you’re going to drop a take like that at least give a reason why. If I want to come out and spew some idea that I have on this website at least I give you a reason why other than just a gut feeling.

Dreger is usually a pretty decent source, but this is just ridiculous. If you’re going to share an opinion like that at least humor me with some reasoning, please.
