John Tavares: Amazing

One of the great things about having been an Isles blogger for so long is that I was able to watch some of the players grow up right in front of my very weak eyes. And while John Tavares came to the Islanders already a hockey star, he was still very much a teenager thrown into a league of men. He knew it. He felt it. He changed. Now I see how.

Seeing the amazing transformation, and what it has done for his game, other players have taken his lead and joined him at The Athlete Training Center in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada. I borrowed this photo off of Twitter and I'd like you to take a really GOOD look at Kyle Okposo. I said it before, I will say it again: Kyle Okposo will be a beast next season. And right behind him will be Casey Cizikas. It is obvious that while we, as fans, think this is the 'off season,' for those players who make hockey their life, there is no off season. And all their hard work will be apparent come September when they arrive at training camp.
