When discussing potential NHL free agents this offseason, no name is a better conversation starter than John Tavares. The 27-year-old Mississauga, Ontario native has spent the first nine years of his professional career with the New York Islanders after being drafted first overall by the club back in 2009. Throughout the 2017-18 season, rumors have been circulating as to whether or not Tavares might resign with the Isles, and now, just over a week from free agency, it looks as though he may be close to making his final decision.
The Knicks Find Themselves In a Different Place on Draft Day; A Place Where They Can’t Screw It Up...Right?

Meaningful basketball is always played at Madison Square Garden every year. Whether it’s the Big East Tournament, or more recently, the Big Ten Tournament, there is championship level basketball played at the Garden. Two years ago, South Carolina topped Florida in the Elite Eight, to punch a ticket to the Final Four. So, yes, the Garden has seen meaningful basketball recently--it just hasn’t been played by the New York Knicks.

As the New York Knicks 2017-2018 season unraveled, people began to talk about something that has become a bit of a trend following the all-star break the past few years. Where will they pick in the draft? Knicks fans are some of the most passionate fans in the NBA, and I’m sure they hate the fact that this has become a trend for their team recently. They do have a few things going for them though. One, they are in New York City. It hasn’t been a destination of choice for top free agents as of late, but it could be, should be, and probably will be again very soon. Two, they hired a terrific coach in David Fizdale. He is extremely well-respected amongst the players in the league and could help draw seom top talent that could turn this thing around. Lastly, the Knicks do have some good, young talent, but lack star power, especially with Kristaps Porzingis being sidelined with a knee injury. So where do they go from here?
