Obviously Tavares lived up to the extension he got, but from a negotiating stand point they were in almost exactly the same situation.
Tavares also plays center which is more of a premium position though.

And to the guy who posted Tavares' first year stats vs Skinners and saying that has any bearing on the talent levels of each, that's just silly... Tavares has completely changed from his rookie season. I think 99% of gms
would take JT over Skinner in a second. That's not a knock on skinner so much as jus JT is an incredible player already and plays a more sought after position
