  • Maple Leafs' John Tavares: Dazzles in Toronto debut

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/18/18) Tavares scored two goals -- one on the power play -- and added an assist in Tuesday's 4-1 preseason win over Ottawa.

    Tavares electrified the Toronto crowd in his team debut. He got on the scoresheet just 5:12 in with a power-play goal before adding two more points in the final frame. The first overall selection in the 2009 draft reached 30 power-play points for the second time in his career last year with the Islanders, and he has a great chance to exceed that total on a Maple Leafs team that can surround him with significantly more skill on the top extra-man unit.

    Maple Leafs' John Tavares: To assume penalty-killing duties

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/15/18) Tavares and Mitch Marner are expected to be utilized on the penalty kill this season, per Maple Leafs coach Mike Babcock, Chris Johnston of Sportsnet reports.

    Tavares averaged 1:34 of ice time in shorthanded situations with the Islanders last season compared to 3:10 on the power play. The move could set up third-year scoring sensation Auston Matthews for an even heavier man-advantage role this year, but the fact remains that nobody should be drafting Tavares (or Marner) for what they might bring to the table in shorthanded situations -- it'll simply be a bonus in fantasy games. Roughly 32 percent of Tavares' career points with New York had been collected on the power play, so that's what most owners will be excited about him providing. Last year, the Buds ranked second in converting power plays (25.0 percent), so just imagine what that rate will look like with Tavares in tow.

    Maple Leafs' John Tavares: Named alternate captain

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/13/18) Tavares has been named an alternate captain for the 2018-19 season, NHL.com reports.

    Definitely not surprising, but the Leafs have named franchise center Tavares one of three alternate captains for the upcoming season. Perhaps the most surprising news is that Auston Matthews will not wear a letter.

    Maple Leafs' John Tavares: $11 million AAV on new contract

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (7/1/18) Tavares -- who signed a seven-year contract with the Maple Leafs on Sunday -- will earn $11 million annually over the life of the deal.

    Somehow, the news of Tavares signing with the Buds didn't get leaked before the free-agency market officially opened Sunday at noon ET. This is perhaps the best player ever to hit the open market in the salary cap era, after all. There were six teams aggressively bidding to acquire Tavares, who has maintained a 0.928 points-per-game pace over nine seasons. While the Islanders were included in that mix and attempted to re-sign him, the club's new GM, Lou Lamoriello, ultimately was unable to pull the right strings despite the fact that his team was said to have been equipped not only with the most money between the potential suitors, but also the exclusive right to offer him a max-term contract (eight years) in free agency. This will be a homecoming for Tavares in Toronto.

    Maple Leafs' John Tavares: Signs seven-year contract

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (7/1/18) Tavares agreed to terms on a seven-year deal with the Maples Leafs on Sunday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

    Tavares was always going to get the max length (seven years), so the term is far from surprising. Toronto -- already a powerhouse team -- should probably now be considered the favorites in the Eastern Conference.
