I try not to read between the lines sometimes, honestly I do. This little blurb today comes from an interview with John Tavares on Greg Logan’s blog today. I will use it in reference to Garth Snow being quoted as saying he was looking for a player that would fit into the mold of what the Islanders are trying to build and also fit in with the local community. Fast forward to today on Logan’s blog:

“Obviously, I’ve heard about it and, at the end of the season, them chanting my name and stuff,” Tavares said today at the draft media luncheon. “Obviously, [the fans] don’t make the pick. The team does. I know the Islanders are looking to improve the best way they can. If they feel I’m the right guy, it would be a great honor, and I’d be happy to be a part of the community and the fan base, as well.”

Things that make you go hmmmmmm…

More cannon fodder I know, but it is stuff like this that makes me ridiculously excited for Montreal tomorrow.
