Babcock says Tavares paired up with Marner to begin training camp. 

Hyman also on that line.

Matthews with Marleau & Nylander.  

Kadri gets the shaft.  Brown and Johnsson?

I think that could be a hell of a line.  Johnsson has skillz.

Could be.  But certainly a step down from playing with Marner.

Lou gives Uncle Leo 4 years and $12 million. 

Good trade. 

Hurry, trade him Matt Martin for that Barzal kid.  Matt Martin has way more truculence.

I'm pretty stoked and all, but should we worry about when people start handing out offer sheets to Nylander, Marner etc?

I'm scared Lou is gonna offer sheet Willy to fuck with us.

The Islanders don't meet the requirements to offer sheet Nylander. Unless they sign him for $10.1M+ AAV, in which case the compensation would be 4 1st round picks.

The Isles don't have their own 2nd, 3rd, or 4th round picks for the 2019 draft.

Unveiling of the Marlies first ever jersey's in 2005. JT, then a member of the GTHL Toronto Marlboro's, is on the far right.

Standing in front of JFJ is Connor Brown.

Garth Snow fucked that organization HARD.

He could look like a goblin as far as I'm concerned.  Can the man play hockey?  You bet.

There's been a lot of talk about Tavares and Stamkos and the tax situation between playing in Toronto vs playing in the US.

A recent Forbes article shows that Tavares could play for Toronto and still pay New York taxes, or even 'relocate' to Florida and pay zero state taxes.

Interesting... I'm going to flip this to my buddy who does "wealth management" for some NHL players.

Man. Some of the changes this team has gone through. Unreal. I remember when Burke was tearing his hair out trying to get Tavares at the draft lol. Now Tavares joins the cast? I could almost feel how salty Burke was on July 1 haha. Unreal. I'm so stoked for this year, I've had my Tavares jersey since mid July.
