I'm amazed it's early July and these guys are on the ice working away.

Maple Leafs have some sort of summer hockey school program. The players participate in demonstration videos, I think.

I hope Tavares at least stopped on his way off the ice and gave that kid an autograph.

Tavares did the Players Tribune thing, anyway this pretty much reinforces my belief that he would have stayed with the Islanders if they didn't fire Snow, the only GM he ever had

Lou: "I'm sorry John, you need to change to shirt number 19 and here's a razor for you to shave that stubble off with."

Tavares:  ???
I Saw Jay McClement Score.

I just wanted to remind everyone that John Tavares is a Maple Leaf and he's only 27 years old.


HOLY CRAP WHEN DID THIS HAPPEN?!!!!?!!?!?!?!?!?

Okay, just to fill you in.   The Leafs also got a first overall pick and drafted a wunderkind by the name of Matthews.

From director Mike Babcock and exectutive prodcuers Kyle Dubas and Brendan Shanahan: The Tavares Effect. Auston and Naz have banner years feasting on second and third line matchups. Marner, Nylander and Kapanen their speedy skilled wingers.

I said before how those tax calculators that were going around probably weren't all that accurate since people like Tavares likely have very smart people looking after his money and getting paid quite a bit to make sure he's maximizing his returns, and this is a good article describing a couple ways he could do that:

Mike Babcock: "How many people from Ontario play in the National Hockey League? ... Once we
                       make it safe they're comin' home."
Bob McGown: "You really think people will WANT to play in Toronto..."
MB: "You got it... They don't right now..."
BM: "It's hard.."
MB: "Ohf.. it's REALLY Hard... Mark my words."

Real gud pro. A real big oppertoonidy here.

Islanders really not happy about Tavares leaving.  One of them penned a letter, messy break up style.

Those games in New York could get tense.

That was quite the self-contradictory ramble.

So...am I crazy or for all of the "Pyjama Boy" stuff isn't the picture Tavares tweeted out of him with a Maple Leafs bedset? There's a Leafs pillow case and bedsheet and duvet cover but he's under the cover isn't he? Where is the pyjama stuff coming from?

I think that Islanders fans might be just a tad unhinged.

They better have good security at that Feb game in NY (or wherever the hell the Islanders play), based on the vitriol I've seen online, I really worry something stupid might happen when Tavares goes back to play.

Yeah, things might get tense after he scores his 3rd goal and 5th point of the night.

The fans vitriol should be directed at ownership and management, not Tavares.  The organisation has been clown shoes going back to the Mike Milbury days.
