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?
