As rumors around his potential departure continue to swirl, John Tavares and the New York Islanders are seemingly no closer to a new contract than they were when the regular season concluded in April.

According to TSN's Darren Dreger, the two sides have yet to even discuss financial specifics for any new potential deal.

While Tavares is New York's captain and the face of the franchise, the cloud of doubt continues to grow over whether he and the Islanders will ever get a contract done.

The 26-year-old center recently stirred the pot of rumors when he said he was in no rush to get an extension signed, and that he was still trying to determine what was best for his future.

Tavares has registered 537 points in 587 career regular-season games for New York, and becomes an unrestricted free agent in July 2018.
