In July, we asked out readers to take a look ahead at the free agent class of 2018 and determine who would be the very best option available. The instructions were to decide who was the best player, among those who would actually make it to free agency.
At that point, just a few weeks after the 2017 free agent frenzy had occurred, almost 66% of our readers picked John Tavares, believing he’d make it to the open market.
Has that changed with the knowledge that the Islanders will have a new home at Belmont Park within the next few years? Is Tavares going to re-sign with the only franchise he’s ever known?
Obviously, none of us can know for sure until Tavares signs a contract making him one of the highest paid players in the league, or July 1st rolls around. But, where does your confidence lie at this point? Vote below and explain what you think will play out over the next few months.
