In our latest New York Islanders podcast, Matt and Mitch go over a topic no one has ever talked about ever: John Tavares’ future.
Will tonight’s home game against the New York Rangers be John Tavares’ last with the New York Islanders? It’s quite possible. We all know Tavares is out of a deal at the end of the season and the end of the season is approaching at an alarming rate.
He says he wants to stay. He says he likes it here. So maybe it all works out. Speaking to media earlier this week, Tavares said exactly those words: “I hope it all works out.”
At this point only John Tavares is in control of John Tavares’ future. He has all the power in the discussions with the New York Islanders (as he should). The Islanders can only chose to agree to his terms – whatever they may be – or let him walk. For nothing. Which is honestly the single biggest insult we could have seen as Isles fans.
What Else Do We Talk About?
John Tavares’ extension might be the biggest issue of the day, but there’s more going on for the New York Islanders at the moment:
- The Islanders are 1-2-0 over their last three games. What do we takeaway and who’s been a standout over the last three?
- We assume that Garth Snow’s win percentage is low. But it’s insane to think that only two teams have a worse percentage: the Sabres and the Coyotes.
- Josh Ho-Sang recently dropped some truth bombs on the Islanders we go through them, one-by-one.
