The New York Islanders have added a a top flight forward to their horrible franchise by selecting John Tavares. Garth Snow did the safe thing and went with the pride of the London Knights. Tavares will now be tasked with returning a downtrodden team from laughingstock to respectability.
Its going to be a large task for this dynamic center. Luckily the media attention on the Island will be nothing like what he's experienced in Canada. Not to mention he will only be playing in front of 8000-12,000 fans at home. Wonder if Wang will immeditately sign him to a 20 year deal?
