John Tavares and the Bruins met yesterday as July 1 draws near

Hey, a meeting is better than no meeting.

Hang in there, folks. TavaresMania should end by Sunday. WE CAN DO IT.

Anyways, the Bruins had their meeting with the free agent superstar yesterday in Los Angeles.

Bruce Cassidy, Don Sweeney and Can Neely all made the trek out to the sunny west coast to meet with John Tavares and his agent, Pat Brisson.

Tavares is prepared, per reports.

The Bruins' meeting ended late afternoon east coast time, per John Lu of TSN. We even got a grainy photo!

It would appear that Tavares has liked what he's heard thus far.

And now...we wait.

Details will likely trickle out leading up to the weekend, but my guess remains that Tavares goes back to Long Island.

He's beloved there, is already the captain and they have a good group of young players and a new arena coming.

I'd put the Leafs in second place, then the Bruins after that. You never know though...worth a shot!
