Why was JT playing left wing?
There is no straight answer to that question. Really, only Doug Weight knows. There are rumors that he did it to spark something, which makes the most sense. Another rumor was to see how the Islanders would play without John Tavares at center (just in case he doesn’t resign).
Hopefully that wasn’t the reason, but as of now, the experiment has sparked nothing as the Islanders lost to the Hurricanes 4-3.
