Poor little Habs Vs the Big bad Leafs

Leafs lost tonight to St.Louis

This may be me but I’ve watched Tavares since the playoffs up until this point so far this year and speed is not something that he has, seems to be hardly noticeable.

29 years old, not a youngster anymore

My Leaf buddies said the same thing , seems to have lost a 1/2 step this year .
They have season tickets and aren’t impressed so far .

He was spoon fed easy 2 foot puts last year

he will be his usual PPG self
For sure for another couple of years.

but the question I have is that since he’s already 29 and the fact the NHL is a speed game how many more point per game years does this guy have in him?

The Leafs figured lets win a cup in 3 years and deal with the contract later on

this was the knock on Gretzky too. Tavares is a smart player, he’ll be fine.

There's actually Habs fans here who wouldn't have signed 28 year old Tavares to a 7 year deal?

Weird. I think your roster would be pretty sweet with him.

No thanks , glad he never gave us a chance

He made the smart move , he knows he would of been crucified in Montreal trying to carry a team on his back

Yep. Quite a few. Quite a few leafs fans telling us that would be stupid as well.

I was arguing for JT though.

No issue with the player , Habs need a 25 year old JT with a developed Caufield , KK , and a few other top 6 players in their early 20`s

He is too old til we turn the corner then dealing with a declining asset on a bad contract
