    He wrote that Sharks, Blues, Sabres, Canadiens and Knights will make pitches. But Tavares would prefer to sign in LA or Toronto.

    I heard Tavares wants a low key place where there is very little media attention. In that case i think San Jose would be a great spot for him.

    let me guess. Lou was hire by the Maple leaf to get hired by the Isles to get Tavares in Toronto. Seems pretty legit.

    If true, Toronto will probably get their guy.

    Who the hell is Arthur Staple?

    San Jose and rest of Cali have a great media coverage of the cali team.. Hockey is really present in California and arenas are packed

    He was the former beat writer for the Islanders for newsday and now writes for the Athletic. He's definitely connected to the organization. I've even had him on my radio show.

    For the sake of argument Staple doesn't have the greatest track record for Islander rumors(even though he reported on us for a bunch of years). Only on occasion he would call a signing a day or so before it would happen(and I am guessing he was feed that info)

    Not gonna argue cuz Hockey is really present in Cali but it’s completely different media/pressure playing in Toronto

    With him wanting to play in a lower pressure environment, I think him wanting to sign in Toronto is BS
