Toronto Maple Leafs: Why They Don’t Need Tavares

John Tavares is one of those players that doesn’t become available often. But when they do, the Toronto Maple Leafs should be interested. Tavares scored over a point-per-game in four seasons, including this past season, scoring 84 points in 82 games. He can lead by example. He can make players around him play better. And, he […] Toronto Maple Leafs: Why They Don’t Need Tavares - Editor In Leaf - Editor In Leaf - A Toronto Maple Leafs Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Sabres may be in the Running for John Tavares

Sabres may be in the Running for John Tavares

During an interview on TSN690, Gord Miller dropped a line sayin the Sabres may be a realistic landing spot for John Tavares I believe we all remember when things got crazy a few years ago when Steven Stamkos was about to hit the open market. The Buffalo Sabres ended up being one of only three teams to get a meeting with the star center. Eventually, Stamkos ruined all the fun by returning to the Tampa Bay Lightning on a pretty team friendly deal. Well, as you may know, another big fish is set to hit the open market this summer. John Tavares is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent...

SIMMONS: Win the Cup at home — that’s the Leafs sell to John Tavares

The best way for Kyle Dubas to make a splash as general manager of the Maple Leafs — sign John Tavares as a free agent. And oddly enough, he may be competing with his old boss, Lou Lamoriello, for the prized available star centreman. Lamoriello is now talking with the Islanders, although the Leafs and […]

NHL Free Agency: Can the Penguins land John Tavares?

NHL Free Agency: Can the Penguins land John Tavares?

Could the Pens land the biggest fish on the market? Elliote Friedman floated the seemingly impossible in his latest column. Could the Penguins be able to land free-agent-to-be John Tavares? 3. Nothing involving Lamoriello gets announced until he decides it does, but a move to the Islanders is the rumour that just won’t die. I do believe there have been talks and that it is a serious possibility. Assuming he does take over, that probably means a new pitch to keep John Tavares. The captain’s done a very good job of staying under the radar, keeping a lid on his future. Someone we do not...

Like all other NHL teams, the New Jersey Devils could absolutely benefit from his services. This post explains how good Tavares is and why the Devils should pursue him in free agency. The New Jersey Devils defied expectations last season by making it to the playoffs. As a result, the expectation for 2018-19 will be continued progress on top of making it to the postseason.
