To be honest I listen to WFAN all day while working and they have writers and reporters on all the time speculating and kicking around pointless "what if" scenarios. It's pretty much was 90% of sports talk radio is.

Understood, I just guess I've always held TSN in a higher regard

and rightly so. But they talk hockey pretty much all day, every day between Sept - June, another spurt around the draft and UFA time.

It's mostly Leaf-talk, 95% is on the CDN teams but they definitely talk about players and what the Leafs need, who the Leafs need and Tavares is a name that just makes a lot of sense, because he's a superstar, he's young, he's from the area and he's part of a perennial loser/laughing stock organization.

If the GM of the Toronto Maple Leafs was ever able to pull off one-tenth of the moves the Toronto hockey media vomits on air - the Leafs would win 60 regular season games per year, along with the Stanley Cup every second year into perpetuity.

All you need to know about Dreger's so-called "analysis" of our organization is that a couple of years ago he predicted -- again, on air -- that Kirk Muller was a strong candidate to be the next head coach of our team.

I would not be surprised if Tavares is leaking this as a way to prepare the Islanders and Islander fans

I knew getting rid of Moulson would have a damaging effect on Tavares desire to be here

Do you really think a player like Tavares wants to play for a team like the Islanders?

I hope this is just the regular 2014 dreger bullcrap where he basically just makes statements to get clicks. I used to pay closer attention to what he reported, but in all honesty, he's becoming an eklund (maybe not that extreme yet, but you get where I'm going).

I'm sure Tavares will stay with you guys, and I hope he does! Don't read too much into this

Just stopping by to add that he's more than Nonis' personal PR guy. They are cousins. I'm surprised it took this long for Dreger to 'speculate' on Tavares considering the amount of other **** he throws against the wall for the Leafs.

No way this is true. JT will honor his contract; but the Islanders have got to figure their **** out or else he is gone once that contract is up.

Dreger's speculation is meaningless. Stupid tool trying to drum up attention.

It is really annoying.

If you want a laugh, take a look at the Trade Forum about this. The offers and the rationale of some posters is early morning entertainment.

I cant see him giving up that easily on the Isles but who knows what this organization can drive people to do...
Is anyone really surprised by this? Even if it's not true, this is the logical direction of the relationship. We have a clowntown organization from top to bottom and one of the few things he probably liked about being here was the lockerroom dynamic. If I was locked in under market value, my team sucked, and they jettisoned my bff simply because he was due a raise I'd be ****ed off too.

This is just speculation but I'll let it out here. If my aunt had balls, she'd be my uncle. Let Dreger run with that.

I'm going to go ahead and lock it then. This is all complete BS with no facts to support this rumor. Dreger throwing crap against the wall and we get this. Love the journalistic integrity.
