It has been three weeks since John Tavares became eligible to sign a contract extension with the Islanders, and yet he still remains without a long-term commitment to the team.

It is going to be difficult for Devils general manager Ray Shero to see what is going on across the Hudson River this season and not cringe. Shero not only missed out on his most coveted free-agent target, but it was rubbed in his face when righty defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk signed a four-year, $26.6 million...

One only can imagine the look on Garth Snow’s face when the Islanders general manager heard about the contract extension Oilers’ wunderkind Connor McDavid reportedly has agreed to in principle.

I don’t believe Alain Vigneault should feel threatened by Lindy Ruff’s anticipated, if not imminent, addition to the coaching staff in place of Jeff Beukeboom, but it also would be silly not to infer Ruff would be next in line when a change at the top ultimately is made.

The Rangers open the season at home, close the season on the road and have 11 back-to-back games, the fewest of any team in the Eastern Conference.
