According to Arthur Staple of The Athletic, the John Tavares contract saga will end with him signing for $12 million per year.
Staple added that Tavares will get this amount either with the Islanders or another team. A $12-million per year deal would put him behind only Connor McDavid ($12.5 million) for the second largest contract in the NHL. Staple made it clear that general manager Lou Lamoriello is ready to do whatever it takes to keep his star center and that owner Scott Malkin is ready for the same. "He wanted this franchise to be the best in the National Hockey League," Lamoriello said of Malkin. "He gave me the authority to go out and do whatever’s necessary to do that. The first decision certainly was to get a coach. In my opinion, we got one of the best in the league. Now, we want to convince our player that this is the right situation for him. But he has to make that decision." The Tavares situation will heat up at 12:01 AM eastern on Sunday when the pending free-agent is permitted to speak to other teams. Jun 23 - 7:00 PM
