For sure. The strong connections between Vancouver and Tavares are undeniable. Clearly he is holding out on signing a deal with hopes of joining a team like the Canucks. I mean, the chance to play with cornerstone pieces like Sutter and Gudbranson. The opportunity to work in an organization as deftly and expertly managed as the Canucks are by Benning. To be able to join a team that travels more than any other - and to live in a City he has next to no connection with - and on top of all that, the Canucks routinely compete for a lottery pick or for the running for the worst team in the league. The links are striking, and I think based on this, we can only conclude that Tavares will be a Canuck with the first few seconds of July 1.
