    It’s gotta be Islanders or Leafs. The rest of those teams will suck in 4-5 years, and unable to make moves during to cap restraints.

    I cant see TB sucking in 4-5 years, Stevie Y can work some GM magic, he'll be forced to trade a couple of players but they have a bunch of young players that can step right in along with their youngsters that will just get better.

    The lack of word may be good for Islanders. If he had informed the Islanders that he is not returning, word would have leaked out. If he is going back to the Islanders, they would be busy working out the small details of the contract and they would probably not announce it until 11:00 tonight, when it is signed and about to be faxed to the league.

    So if he’s not returning, word would have leaked out, but not the other way around? Actually, if he wants the 8 years with the Isles, he has to sign by midnight tonight. So the longer there’s no word, the worse it is for the Isles.

    No he doesn't. He can get the 8 years from NYI at any time. The re-signing team can offer 8, other teams can max 7.

    Not according to the NHL writers/insiders. Everyone has been saying that in order to qualify for the eighth year, he must sign tonight. Because he only remains their property until then. If he hits July 1, he is considered a free agent, and can only get seven years. From anyone.

    Yeah, seems like today is the 8-year cutoff.

    Doesn’t make sense, so I assume that’s the rule #nhl

    Well, it makes technical sense. You own players "rights". Once you become a UFA, your rights are unrestricted, so why should the team you used to play on be given special treatment on the open market? That treatment was their option prior to you making it to market.

    Yeah, the fact he didnít sign by end of play last night is seen as a pretty good indication heís heading into free agency.

    CapFriendly confirmed it last night. He can only sign for seven years.

    The hockey gods work in strange ways. Without Tavares and probably de Haan, the Islanders will be well positioned in the Jack Hughes sweepstakes next year, so this may ultimately benefit them. Toronto may end up with a cavalcade of stars but forced to hollow out their roster below that for cap reasons in coming years. We shall see, but it will be nice to see a genuinely bad Islanders squad dragging its sorry tail between the basketball arena in Brooklyn and the AHL rink in Uniondale.

    Gotta feel a little bit for Trotz. One minute he's cruising in a Maserati, then all of a sudden he's stuck in the right lane in a Ford Focus.
