  • Islanders' John Tavares: Typically productive in preseason debut

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/17/17) Tavares scored twice Sunday, and it was his overtime goal that gave the Islanders a 3-2 preseason home win over the Flyers.

    Tavares, one of the NHL's elite centers, is back to work in preparation for the final year that remains on his contract with the Islanders. The 26-year-old has already been in the league for eight years, with his career output including 235 goals and 302 assists. Don't expect the consummate professional to get distracted by the hockey public's eagerness to know where he'll end up, but it's safe to assume that he'll garner much more than the $5.5 million AAV on his current deal. Tavares' point totals have slipped two years in a row -- down to 66 last year -- but the venerable Jordan Eberle was brought in this summer to be his right-hand man.

    Islanders' John Tavares: Not in rush for new contract

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (8/16/17) Tavares is not feeling any pressure to sign an extension with the Islanders, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.

    This season marks the last of the current contract for Tavares that pays him $5.5 million per season. Tavares has seen the massive contracts handed out to players like Leon Draisaitl and Connor McDavid and understands he may be able to double his annual pay with a new deal. He also seems willing to wait until there is further clarity on where the team will be playing in the future, a situation that may not become clear before he reaches free agency next July. If Tavares and the Islanders aren't able to come to an agreement on a contract extension before the NHL trade deadline, the team may be forced to move Tavares for as much as it can get via a trade rather than risk he leaves, or else the Isles might receive nothing in return.

    Islanders' John Tavares: Wants to remain with Islanders

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (8/1/17) Tavares said Tuesday that he hopes to remain with the Islanders, Neil Best of Newsday reports.

    Tavares is entering the last season of a six-year, $33 million contract and will be due for a substantial raise. If the Isles feel they can't sign him to a long-term contract, then they may feel that it's in the best interest of the organization to trade him to a team that can afford what will likely be an annual value north of $7 million.

    Islanders' John Tavares: Still no contract talks taking place

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (7/5/17) Tavares and the Islanders are still not involved in any active negotiations regarding a contract extension, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.

    Tavares hasn't given any indications that he doesn't want to play for the Islanders, so speculation is that his camp is waiting to see whether GM Garth Snow makes any further moves to improve the quality of the team around him, not to mention where the team is likely to be playing in the future. He should command a major contract after seeing Connor McDavid sign for north of $12 million a season. Tavares holds all the cards because if the Islanders don't want to pay him, just about any other team in the NHL will, as top-line centers just don't grow on trees.

    Islanders' John Tavares: Surgery on hand

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/8/17) Tavares had surgery on his hand in April, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.

    Tavares is expected to be ready for the start of the regular season. Apparently he was dealing with a hand issue for much of this season but was able to play through it. This will be an eventful offseason for Tavares, as he is expected to let the team know at some point before the NHL Draft whether or not he expects to sign a long-term contract. Tavares had 28 goals and 66 points despite the injury.
