Dont believe anything that the tornto media says. They will say anything so they think they still have a chance at JT.

This wouldn't be terribly surprising if you read between the lines of some of what has been said (and not said) by the Islanders however I also wouldn't trust the Toronto Sun at this time. It's just as likely that they printed that line just to stir things up and see what comes of it.

That's because the GM of Toronto wants John Tavares. Garth, stick with the plan.... draft a goal scorer!

<quoted text>Why are you on here? Is it because nobody likes you on your own site? I mean really pal, get a life. I don't go on the Ranger boards. Are you a closet Islander fan? Don't talk about contracts man. Stupid convo with your GM's track record, seriously get a life.
I enjoy hockey. Why are you here.... apart from the fact that your mom decided not to go to that back alley abortion ?

You are here solely to stir shit and nothing more you are only fooling yourself with that ridiculous statement. Why discuss hockey with Islander fans? I don't go on Zipay's boards to talk to Rags fans. I could care less what your worthless team is doing. Although its fun watching them continually do the wrong thing I wouldn't go on a Rangers blog to bust Rag fans balls about it. Really, are you that bored? You enjoying hockey has nothing to do with you enjoying being antagonistic and insulting.

No, I'm here cause I enjoy talking about anything hockey related. I guess something that simple is just too hard for your feeble mind to comprehend.

You vomit insults, thats what you get in return. Deal with it shitforbrains.
