5 team list.
Flames and Leafs don't have cap space. He's going to get 10 per at least and neither of those teams have the space...

Ottawa owners are cheap, so really if it is Canada it comes down to Mon and Van - 2 teams.
Yep. Sorta.

Toronto and Calgary could both make it work under the cap with a couple of trades.

Ottawa could afford it. Their cap is just because Melnyk is cheap. He’s gonna start feeling the pressure to build a winner eventually. Move Ryan and Gaborik, split that $12M between Tavares and a raise for Karlsson. Then re-up Stone. Spend to the cap and do like Arizona and Florida and live off of profit sharing. Lol.

Tavares, Duchene, Stone, Karlsson, Goalie. Build around them.

Besides, this is just a city visit list. Due diligence and all that rot.
I thought one of the reasons he wouldn't come to Vancouver was because the Canucks are rebuilding - why would he go to Ottawa for a rebuild?

Calgary only has about 15 mil left and need to sign about 7 players, including Son Of Keith and a starting goalie after next season.

Toronto has 22 mil in cap space and need to sign 8 more players including Matthews, Marner and Nylander - Jake Gardiner is coming up on a new deal too. Marleau has a NMC, I can't see him waiving if the team is going to sign Tavares.

Matthews will get McDavid's 12.5, Marner and Nylander will eat up the other 9.5 they have left.

I never understood arguing over the validity of a rumour. A rumour by definition isn't true, it's hearsay or speculation.

All that means is so many people have read about it, the principals actually think about it and end up doing just that.

Plus it gives us something to argue about, or at least have a discussion about.

Is Blob really a 'partier'? Or a drinker? There's a big difference between the two.

True, I didn't want to say "drinker" due to my commitment to political correctness.

There's no stigma attached to "drinker" - especially on this board! ;)

I think discussion is fantastic!

Roster movement is fun and leads to great discussions and speculation about how better or worse teams will be. Tavares signing anywhere but NYI is going to change things in a big way for a few teams depending on where he winds up. The Islanders may as well slit their wrists and get it over with if their franchise player leaves for absolutely nothing!

If he ends up in the Pacific it's going to make things that much harder for us. We'll be facing two of the top centres in the game on a regular basis!

Yeah that fat piece of shit isn’t coming back. He’s married an Indian gal and consumes copious amounts of butter chicken and got his class 1. He’s out in Delta somewhere chowing down in a samosa or a bearded clam
