John Tavares
On John Tavares …

Bob McKenzie: “If you think you’re frustrated by the lack of news/clarity on John Tavares, imagine being one of the teams who pitched him not having heard anything yet.

Brian Lawton: “I was told final offer was 8 x 11.375 or the magic number of 91 million! Is it just a PR touch guess we will find out today! No word on if that was good enough.”

Brian Lawton: “You have to imagine that at some point said look we want you back and we are well aware of what potential loop holes other clubs could try to exploit and we will match all of them. You want 15 million in year 1 followed by an 8 year deal in January sure!”

Andy Strickland: “Many feel John Tavares signing could lead to domino of possible trades. Still holding several possibilities up”

On the Buffalo Sabres …

Elliotte Friedman: “BUF looks ready to add two goalies: Carter Hutton at 3 years, just under$3M — and Scott Wedgewood as organizational number 3”

On the Vegas Golden Knights …

Bob McKenzie: “VGK the frontrunner to land Paul Stastny.”
