Every team has players who have more value on their own team. Ottawa would never give up Karlsson for Tavares from our POV, but it doesn't make him more valuable than Tavares.
I believe I made it understood that this was also my feeling.

I was not saying Tavares was better or more valuable than any single player, but to NYI he is pretty much pricless. ie like Karlsson is to the SENS and Stammer for TBL.
