Come on guys, Tavares would never do that and you all know it. Yeah, life sucks right now yet there are better days on the horizon and you must think he's repeating that in his head over and over right now.

This kid wants to be great and nothing short of that will be acceptable to him. He also knows that this is his team and he has the opportunity to be the alpha dog to lead this team back. He'll get exponentially more respect if he does it that way rather than jumping ship to another team at this stage of his career. He wants his face on Hockey's Mount Rushmore and you don't get that by taking the easy path.

Let's discuss this in 5 years when his contract draws to an end. Otherwise, this is just huge overreaction. He's one of the few things that we shouldn't have to worry about and he's never given us one reason to doubt his word and his resolve.
