Everyone knows that John Tavares’ contract is up after this season. The big question is whether or not he’ll sign. People are being so dramatic they thought him getting a new haircut is a sign of him changing.
He’s said before that he wants to stay on Long Island, but I think he wants a Stanley Cup more.
There are obviously two outcomes of this situation. Either he stays with the team or abandons it to join a team such as the Maple Leafs. Below we look at the factors of his decision.
- Location: he’s said he likes Long Island, but he might want to be close to his family in Canada
- Arena: He obviously hates taking the train to Barclays Center, good thing the Isles got Belmont.
- Standings: If the Isles continue to lose, why would he want to stay?
- Teammates: I think John Tavares wants to have line-mates who can help him out as well
Price was not included on purpose. The Islanders can pay him whatever he wants and so would any team.
Question: If you were John Tavares, would you re-sign with the Islanders?
