Tavares Day to Day (LBI)

Just got a popup from Bleacher Report stating " John Tavares misses practice, lower body injury, considered day-to-day. As per Capuano. If that is the case, I can really see the Isles tanking and winding up with that #1 pick overall if JT is out any amount of extended time.

He is day to day with a lower body injury doesn't sound serious..

Per Staple:

Quote:
@StapeNewsday: Have heard that Tavares' injury is not considered to be a long-term problem. Knowing him, may be resting today to give it a go tomorrow.

Kid doesn't know how to sit out. He will play if he has a pulse.

He's been playing banged up. They're holding him out of practices so he can make the most of the days off between Tuesday and Saturday. He'll be in against the Devils. You can bet the farm on it.

Considering they are to play back to back nights, no big deal.

He's been getting knocked around a bit lately, but he is a hockey player and he takes it and bounces back. Hope it isnt a knee done wonky or the start of something that needs off-season surgery. Minor strain can be managed with PT and ice. he isn't going to want to miss any games or the Olympics, so they better cover his back.

That's what I was thinking. But man, we can ill afford to lose JT for any time whatsoever if they even wanna think they have a chance at a playoff spot (which to me sounds laughable at this point).

Can't believe the word "tank" is even being use around here. That's ridiculous. Also I still do t understand how people think its easy to tank. Players themselves will never tank. Now if management wants to ice a horrible team with the hopes of them sucking that's a different story. But players can careless about some future draft pick or a 17-18 year old kid who is not even a teammate yet.


I garentee In 2008 Wieght Guerin Striet didn't give 2 ***** about getting Tavares.

I really don't think JT would miss a game at all. Although, I would not make a big deal if JT missed a game or two.

Capuano, Snow, and Wagner need to pull their heads out. Put someone with an edge on the first unit when you play clubs who play the meathead line against him. Enough of this crap already.

In the same regards the refs need to take care of Tavares better. Islander or not the kid is hands down one of the bigger stars of the game. Tavares is not Crosby or Ovy, but again, jt is one of the best young players in the game. The refs owe the kid some respect.

If not we will have a repeat of the penguins game from a few years back. Ya know, the one that got us the label of wreckless goons on skates. Meanwhile, everyone turned a blind eye to the unofficiated abuse.

If JT does miss a game, I'd go with:

Vanek Nielsen Okposo
Bailey Strome Grabner
Nelson Regin Clutterbuck
Martin Cizikas McDonald

There's a theory that Bill Simmons has on this called 'The Ewing Theory'. Article here: http://www.grantland.com/story/_/id/...eory-revisited

It resurfaced with all of the Tony Romo business and being out for the season right before the huge last game of the season against Philly: http://thelandryhat.com/2013/12/27/t...allas-cowboys/

The gist is that if there's a star player who's clearly the best on the team and gets all the media attention even though they have not won anything substantial, teams have a tendency to improve after that player gets injured and everyone writes the team off. It could be because that person was overrated, because other teammates relied on him too much, a spark and more minutes for guys that may step up, etc.

It would be kind of interesting, with Nelson slotting in the #1C spot (as he did at practice today), maybe Bailey getting a fire lit (wasn't his play at the beginning of one recent season that had everyone excited at a time when JT wasn't playing?), etc.

That said, there is no WAY I want Tavares to not play.

You made my point by CALLING PENALTIES. Teams take runs at Tavares that certain players would get called immediately.

No one said babysitting, but in the same respect, it is within the leagues best interest to keep the best players on the ice. Plain and simple. In a league that is cutting down on fighting and instigating. Yet, lets throw a goon out there and rack up PENALTY minutes for instigating and retaltory calls.
