Lou Lamoriello has relieved both Garth Snow and Doug Weight of their respective duties as GM and head coach. The moves have sparked a firestorm on social media as to what those implications could mean for John Tavares

Firings Mean JT will likely stay

Some writers feel this is a good sign for the Islanders.

Tavares is a goner?

One Toronto radio personality had this interesting insight:

Either way you look at it, simply firing the GM and coach aren’t going to be enough for JT to forego free agency. He needs a top dollar offer for 8 years, a coach with a winning track record on board, and a clear plan to bring in a top level goal scorer for his wing.

Bottom line, if he doesn’t get all this soon he will go to the open market giving the Rangers a legit shot at getting him.
