My point exactly. If Tavares is gonna abandon the Island as a UFA, he'll abandon for a better team than the Leafs.

I'll take any bet you want to make that JT won't be an Islander for life? I doubt he ever becomes a Leaf.... But I'll guarantee he gets out of that organization asap.

He'll sign a 4 year deal that will run him to UFA an gtfo of there.
Doubt it. He's publicly stated how much he loves Long Island and that he wants to stay here long term. I'm not going to bother looking up a link.

He's said that. As have many other islanders, who from a non-outsiders point of view realize the island isn't the ****hole people make it out to be.

It's actually a pretty nice place to raise a family and live a lucrative lifestyle.

Theres almost zero Leaf fans defending the trade. You can't expect a thread like this with tons of people raggin' on the Leafs and expect not a single Leaf fan to come in and make a defensive comment. I agree theres definitely some trolling going on here, but its not just from Leaf fans.

There might be no such thing as an Islander pretty soon, regardless...... I merely jest, but with all the lowblowing going on here, I might as well right?


It's gonna take much more than that, bud.

Nothing to see here, folks.

I don't think people realize how close Nassua is to places in NYC. It's a great place to live in. Taxes are through the roof, but that's for the average person making an average salary. It's the closest thing you can get to being near NYC but being in a very nice suburban area, and the people care about the Islanders too.

New arena = no way Tavares is getting off the island. There is a better chance the Leafs develop a top line center than Tavares going and playing there.

Doubt it. Not as long as Charles Wong is the owner anyway.

Te NYI are his toy, an as long as that's te case it won't be an attractive place to play unless your overpaying players to reach the cap floor.

No link needed. I believe you.

Problem is, JT is a class act an as long as he puts that sweater on he'll always rep it. What's he gonna say? "this is b.s, why did the worst franchise by miles have the first pick in my draft year?" of course not.

Guys like him are happy to be in the league and would play anywhere....but once he's served his 7 years I'll bet he's looking for more stability and a commitment to winning.

So let me get this straight. You believe that JT will resign for 4 years with the islanders, only to plan his escape when he is a UFA to sign with Toronto?

Are you that clueless? Seriously? Do you not see the idiocy in this theory?

THIS x OVER 9000.

Sucks that post will probably be disregarded because it takes all the fun out of bashing the stupid Leafs fans.
