  • 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.

    Islanders' John Tavares: Original timeline of 3-to-5 weeks

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/10/17) Tavares (lower body) told reporters he was expected to miss 3-to-5 weeks, Brian Compton of NHL.com reports.

    Based on that time frame, Tavares likely would have missed most of the Isles' opening-round series if they had made the playoffs. Instead, the center will focus on getting ready for the 2017-18 campaign and will avoid returning to action too soon. The 26-year-old will likely be the subject of contract rumors and discussions as well this offseason as he heads into the final year of his deal with New York.

    Islanders' John Tavares: Out for rest of season

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/2/17) Tavares (lower body) will miss New York's last five games, Joe Yerdon of the Associated Press reports.

    The center had a solid 2016-17 campaign with 66 points in 77 games. With so much time before next year kicks off, he should be back at full strength well before the preseason starts in September.

    Islanders' John Tavares: Officially week-to-week, season may be over

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/1/17) Tavares (lower body) is considered week-to-week with the injury he sustained in Friday's game against the Devils, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.

    The trouble with the week-to-week designation is that the Islanders only have five games remaining on their regular-season schedule and the team's chances of making it to the playoffs are minimal at best. While Staple notes that a call-up has yet to be made, there's absolutely no outright replacement for an elite center like Tavares, who might end up finishing with 66 points (28 goals, 38 assists) and 18 power-play points over 77 games.
