besides crosby, there is no other player I'd trade tavares for right now.

rare combination of untapped potential, leadership, work ethic & dedication, accountability and desire to win.

this guy continues to improve himself and switzerland is no exception. if there is an nhl season, I believe he will be much improved over last year.
Ugh, once again I will state about this trading JT thing in realistic terms. People said this a couple years ago, but I would NOT trade JT for Crosby because of his injury concerns but would pull the trigger on Malkin in a heartbeat. The guy just dominates the game and is absolutely elite. Yes, JT is awesome and so glad to have the guy but I would trade for Malkin in an instant. Fortunately JT's contract is great compared to Malkins.
