I can name 5 players, one of which that you might take for him: Crosby, Malkin, Stamkos, Ovechkin, or Giroux.
Lol at Ovechkin, gets paid +$9 million, and his point totals are declining for a 2nd time now. I wouldn't trade a young star center like Tavares for him.

Any trade that would involve Tavares, would be an extreme amount of salary coming back to an owner that doesn't want to spend above the cap floor. So even if there's an extreme offer, there's really no deal that can be made for Tavares.

Not worth it unless it's 2 sure bets that Buffalo gets the #1 overall. Which they won't.

I'd kill to have Tavares on my team, so... who do I have to kill to get that trade to go through?

I think if Tavares were to sign with the Rangers (instead of his extension), he would become the most hated former Islander in franchise history.

Tavares 6 yr extension,will average $5.5m per.Which Wang+Snow can afford.
You are right, about them not wanting big salaries back.

Because they've been stockpiling prospects for 5 drafts, they wouldn't care much about getting prospects back either

Now,you sound like a Leaf fan

Botta pushed hard for the NYI to draft Tavares,scoffing at the negative scouting reports leading up to the 2009 draft.
He wrote about how you draft a player and have a least 7 yrs to build up loyalties,friendships.

And sure enough,Tavares was soon making the Toronto media cry, with his comments about loving be an Isle, signing his extension early,so it would not be a team distracton.

Yeah too bad Rangers and Islanders are such fierce rivals. I'd love to trade for him. Would cost us tons of assets but he's worth it IMO.

I like John Tavares but let's stop treating him like he is Gordie Howe in his prime.

If Tavares was pulling some egomaniac trip I highly doubt he'd agree to play in Buffalo.

There is no plausible offer that Buffalo can make and NYI will accept. In order for enough "value" to go the Isle's way, so much salary must be included that Wang says forget about it.

She's an athlete (tennis, I think), so she probably at least has a good body.

Ok so for Tavares the Isles get the following:

Derek Roy
Nathan Gerbe
Andrej Sekera
11 Drafts

And for helping facilitate this trade I get the following:

a billionaire's tennis playing daughter
Tim Hortons ashes to use in my coffee in the morning

Before I write up the papers can I turn the daughter into a conditional daughter just in case there is a better looking daughter in the family? If not I'll fax in the paperwork this afternoon.

Good job all around on the trade everyone!

Put a Sabres offer on the table that takes into account:

1.Budget tight Isles, will not want large salaries or soon to be ufas.

2.Isles already have a deep prospect pool,so no prospects as the key trade chip.

3.Main player coming back to LI has to have 21 yr old Tavares' upside.

4.Main player coming back to LI has to have a long term,reasonable contract.

5.Players coming back to LI can't be redundant(such as :Isles have Moulson+Grabner at top 2 lw spots,so no lw with lower stats/upside).

That's the middle daughter that plays tennis. Don't know what the oldest one does.
