Would you be angry if Tavares asked out after this year?

I don't think Tavares/Brisson are the type to let this out publicly. If they aren't having discussions with Snow/Charles about the state of the team and John's frustrations then I'd be shocked.
I seriously doubt these guys would have signed long term if they felt the team would be run into the ground, which is looking that way now. And it's not like they have any real leverage, but Tavares is NOT just any other player. He's no Nino (no disrespect intended), his words and actions carry a lot of weight.
His leadership on and off the ice is Gretzky-like.
You don't want to mess with your only remaining asset.
But this is the New York Islanders.
Common sense may not apply.
