With new majority owners and now talk of a new arena, the future of the New York Islanders has been a popular topic lately. Not surprisingly, it’s led to plenty of discussion about the future of captain John Tavares, who can become an unrestricted free agent in the summer of 2018. Ownership has insisted that it won’t get that far, that Tavares will be re-signed. The Isles will have “no financial constraints,” owner Jon Ledecky promised.
Detroit now has just under $9.3 million in cap space allocated to its two goaltenders next season.
