Tavares will likely be a fine NHLer but Vinny is a proven NHLer and has an impact NOW for a team that desperately needs a figure to the franchise. Having a healthy Dipietro, Streit and Vinny can be the building blocks for some sort of success the next 5 years IMO
Tavares will most probably be a NHL and a franchise player at that. Lets face it the Isles are going to need more high draft picks before they can compete. (hence a few more years) Whats the point of paying a high a high salary player for dead time?
