As the summer heats up, so does the NHL offseason. The NHL Draft has come and gone, and the rumors are running rampant now. We are less than a week away from the start of NHL Free Agency. Free Agency officially begins on July 1st and the biggest name on the market is John Tavares. It is no secret that the Blackhawks want Tavares and so does their city.
Local Businesses Make Offers to John Tavares
As a ploy to lure John Tavares to Chicago, local businesses in the Chicagoland area have reached out to Tavares on Twitter. The first to make a lifetime offer in return for Tavares’ services was the famous Irish pub, Declan’s.
Hey @91Tavares free food and drinks for life at Declan’s if you sign with the Blackhawks.

The next lifetime offer that was presented to John Tavares was from the famous Chicagoland pizzeria, Armand’s.
Hey, @91Tavares I would like to offer you free Chicken Parm and Pizzas for life if you sign with the Blackhawks!

Now, I am not sure about you, but if someone is offering me free food and alcohol, I am dropping everything to cash in on that offer. I am not being biased when I say this, but Chicago has some of the best food in the entire country. It is a proven fact.
To go along with the food and alcohol, John Tavares would also be a part of one of the most storied franchises in all of sports history in the Blackhawks. Not to mention that he would also rack up some serious dough (pun intended) by signing with Chicago. There are countless national and local endorsement deals for an athlete in Chicago since we have one of the biggest sports markets out there.
So, John, what do you say? We can offer you money, food, alcohol and a chance at a Stanley Cup. I already wrote an article and have a plan on how to work out the numbers and details. Just sign your name on the dotted line and we will take it from there.
