They aren't as good as Lindros, but they don't come every couple of years. Tavares and Hedman are better "prospects" than anyone in the past 15 years save Ovechkin and Crosby.
That's bull. Remember the polls by Bob MacKenzie where the large majority of scouts (or maybe gm's) were saying that they would take Stamkos before Tavares? Kovalchuk was better than the pair of them, Kane looked a lot better to me than Tavares at the same age, Doughty is already playing 20+ minutes a night and playing well, there have been many guys in the last 15 years at least on the same level as Tavares and Hedman when they entered the draft.
