It’s official ladies and gentlemen. John Tavares has chosen his suitor, and it’s the Maple Leafs. After an intense week of interviews between John and 6 other teams, he has made his mind up of where he wants to play for the next 7 years. He’s coming home. The reported deal is 7 years at $11 million per year. There is and will be a lot of debate between fans if this was the right move. The overwhelming majority will say yes, but there is still that small vocal group who believe spending this much money on a free agent is the wrong move because the defense needs to be addressed.
Welcome to Toronto John, there is a bright future ahead.
