John Tavares has arrived with five goals and two assists in four games while displaying unbelievable offensive acumen for the New York Islanders. I've been watching a lot of the Islanders as I've been a Tavares fan since his junior days and I think he has one of the most unparalleled minds for the game. If you're a fantasy hockey player, consider going big on getting Tavares now because he's going to be untouchable in most leagues by the mid-point of the season. Tavares shows a freakish ability to go unnoticed in the offensive zone and then seemingly come out of nowhere with a perfect pass or to be in the perfect spot to snipe a goal. If you get an opportunity, catch an Islanders' game in the near future as there's some really special things going on with that team including the beginning of a prodigy's ascent to greatness in the best league in the world.
Also keep your eyes on Josh Bailey who's come out of nowhere to play very dominant hockey and form an excellent one-two-three punch down the middle with Tavares on the top line and Doug Weight on the third line. Bailey was scoring at a point per game pace before suffering a hip injury that held him out of the lineup for a week or so. However at the time of this writing except Bailey back in the line-up as soon as tomorrow.

|The Greatest Man Alive|
We here at BVB hope you'll consider voting for the greatest man alive Paul Bissionnette to the 2011 NHL All-Star Game. The Phoenix Coyotes pugilist not only deserves to go for being the toughest man in the world nor does he deserve to go for being the funniest son of a bitch in the NHL. The Great BizNasty deserves to be there simply because he's the fans' champion and after we got screwed by the NHL in the Rory Fitzpatrick campaign, we deserve to finally have our pick play. So vote for Bissionnette this Feburary not only because it's the right thing to do but it's a vote against the tyranny of the NHL!
