The latest John Tavares update is that there is no update.
As of Sunday morning, none of the six teams in the Tavares sweepstakes, including the Islanders, have been notified of a decision, according to multiple reports.
A decision still could be made on Sunday, though, as the NHL remains on #TavaresWatch.
According to BetOnline, the Islanders are the favorites to land Tavares, which would mean retaining their franchise cornerstone. The Isles come in at +125, followed by the Sharks (+275), Maple Leafs (+500), Bruins (+700), Stars (+800), and Lightning (+850).
The Islanders drafted Tavares No. 1 overall in 2009, and he has scored 272 goals, 349 assists and 621 points since debuting at 19 in the 2009-10 season.
He scored 37 goals and 47 assists last season, but wants to chase a team that has had recent on-ice success.
