So, tonight the New York Islanders got beaten up pretty badly by the Colombus Blue Jackets. Like, 7-0 bad. One could expect angry body language, harsh words and tension from players humiliated on the ice.
Well, John Tavares doesn't agree.
Smiling and laughing, Captain clutch is seen exiting the ice like he doesn't even care. With his team fighting hard to get something going for the playoff, his attitude is surprising. He's known for his intensity and professionalism, but tonight the captain didn't show a care in the world.
We might be seeing things that don't exist, but a captain giving up on performing well day in and day out is always perplexing.
