In 2009 the Islanders drafted John Tavares 1st overall. He’s been on the team ever since.
Now, his contract is up. Every single Islanders fan wants Tavares to stay.
Here are the 3 reasons why John Tavares will stay.
1. He’s OUR star
John Tavares is the captian of New York. He won’t give that up.
2. He’ll $tay
The Islanders are offering an 8 year deal worth $10 million a year! He won’t turn that much money down. He currently makes 6 million a season.
3. Friends and Family
Wherever you live, would you want to move to another country for a job worth the same? Probably not. Unfortunately, John does have family in Toronto.
