John Tavares on being drafted by New York

I'm going to let the feeders do the walking on Tuesday's News articles. Toronto focus will be on their Monday game against Ottawa. Apparently Pierre LeBrun heard some of those rumors (that seemed to come out of Canada) about John Tavares not wanting to come to New York and play for the Islanders and asked him about them Monday in an article on his scoring record.

Tavares comments that he has met with an Islander scout last week and had this to say:

"It's not true at all," Tavares said. "Wherever I'm selected, 100 percent I'm going to be going there. If it is the New York Islanders, of course I'm going to go. I think they've got a lot of good prospects and there's some good things happening there. Obviously, they're looking to get a new arena, which is always exciting. And it's a team with great tradition and history." Has a very good feature on Bridgeport catching Hershey despite being down thirteen points in the standings with an 11-1-0-3 mark over the last month as they eye their first division title since their inaugural 2001-02 season and first playoff birth in two years.

Bridgeport will play eight of its last 11 on home ice, where it is 22-6-1-3 this season.

Sound Tigers play Lowell on Tuesday.
