• In our cover story we examine the case of John Tavares in “Marooned On Long Island.”

• In his editor’s notebook, Jason Kay writes about the failings of the realignment plan and its impact on playoff hockey.

• In Inside Hockey, Kansas City is equipped with an NHL-ready arena, could it be a home for the roaming desert dogs of Phoenix? Bobby Holik tells us why larger ice surfaces would reduce concussions and increase creativity; we follow the Twitter frenzy “Hartnell Down” that tracks the spills of Philadelphia Flyers left winger Scott Hartnell; and much more.

• In The Straight Edge, Ryan Kennedy writes about the home-ice disadvantage that has impeded Canada in the past four World Junior Championships.

• In Proteau Type, Adam Proteau excuses Randy Cunneyworth’s French, arguing there’s too much attention being paid to the Habs coach’s inability to speak the language and not enough on the Habs’ slide as a team.

• In Team Reports, we look at the confident stride of Winnipeg Jets left winger Evander Kane and check in with Kyle Turris as he settles into his new-found home in Ottawa. We also talk to Ryan O’Reilly about serving a leadership role on one of the league’s youngest teams in Colorado.

• We delve into elite pro prospects Connor McDavid and Josh Ho-Sang who are changing the way we look at young talent.

• Beyond the Spotlight travels to the small First Nations community of Deline in Canada’s Northwest Territories to examine the claim that the location is the birthplace of hockey.

• In Last Minute of Play, Larry Humber’s crossword puzzle provides a challenge, Jersey Hound features the cartoony, but unique jerseys of the Michigan Warriors, and more.

• And finally, in Overtime, Ken Campbell explains how suspensions have changed the play of sin-bin regular Matt Cooke and how supplemental discipline is serving as an effective way to punish offenders.
