    I would love to tell you the issues with HF Boards that we experienced during the NHL Draft have been addressed. The reality is we are not sure until the surge hits and it will especially when Tavares makes his decision.

    I dont blame him it's a big decision and he seems like a good character. Can't hold it against him.

    As long as he doesn't go to Toronto for under 13 million.

    Do we need to register (email, etc.) to use the backup chat room?

    Gotta be honest, discord chat is trash.

    I recommend not joining.

    It serves fine as a free VoiP replacement to the likes of Ventrilo and Teamspeak, but the chat aspect is indeed pretty meh.

    After so much good fortune, it seems like the Islanders have now suffered one of the worst blows in franchise history.

    Captain John Tavares was not announced as signing a new deal as of late Saturday night, and once it got to midnight and the calendar changed to July 1, he was going to be an unrestricted free agent. Tavares couldn’t sign with another team until noon on Sunday, but because of the rules in the collective bargaining agreement, the Islanders were set to become just like any other team.

    That means they could offer Tavares just a seven-year deal, whereas before midnight they could have signed him to an eight-year deal. That equates to about a $11 million-$13 million difference, assuming that was going to be about the annual salary-cap hit on his new deal.

    And that means that with Tavares not signing, he could very well have said goodbye to the only NHL franchise he has known since they took him with the No. 1-overall pick in 2009.

    Ryan O'Reilly stayed put through midnight ET which means the Sabres are on the hook for his $7.5 M bonus. Doesn't mean he still can't be traded but the Sabres, I think, told teams throughout that the price goes up now after the July 1 bonus is paid...

    Is it at all possible that Tavares has signed with the Islanders, but that the parties are waiting to announce it until noon EST?
