I kind of remember that...does anyone with a way better memory than ours remember who that was?

I don't remember the name, but it was a predictions thread with a bunch of out-there ones.

For some reason I also feel like it was the NOT SO MUCH guy.

If anything, Islander fans have proven that he completely made the right choice.

LOL I read it in his interview-answering voice. And "crucial" is definitely in JT's regular vocabulary ;D

He said he had wanted to skate to center ice to salute the fans at Nassau but after the drowning out of the video tribute... just made it a couple steps.

Not going to lie...I thought leaving Tavares alone at the blue line for an ovation the other night was super cheesy.

Yeah it was a bit over the top with all the JohnTavaresTO day stuff. If it was something that just happened organically with all the fans cheering him before the game that's one thing, but it seems setup and phony to "respond" to the Islanders game.  Ah well, this too shall pass.

I was fine with it. We might call Tavares a robot but there's no way being boo'd mercilessly by 13,000 people for 3 hours straight wouldn't have effected him negatively in some way. Especially given how the actual game went. I think the fact that they didn't even let up during the tribute video, which is usually always a huge moment for a returning player, would have hurt. Maybe it was cheesy but lots of cheesy gestures are still appreciated by the person it's directed to.

Meh cheesy or not, it was a nice gesture and I'm sure it boosted jersey sales. Every piece of this saga has been entertaining.

The only proper way to end this saga is Leafs winning the Cup this season and Tavares decides to bring the Cup to Long Island to celebrate.

That, and also signing UFA Mat Barzal in a few years.
