What about Lundqvist, a perennial Vezina trophy contender? Karlsson, the recent Norris trophy winner? Pietrangelo, the complete package defenseman who is still very young? Toews, who's one of the greatest leader in the game, while having a similar offensive output as Tavares, and a Conn Smythe on top of that? Quick, one of the best goalie in the game who also happen to be the most recent Conn Smythe winner?

And there's that guy Ovechkin as well.

Tavares is far from being the big franchise player on that list. I can understand why people would pick him due to his age and his perceived upside, but he has done absolutely nothing to justify winning this poll by a landslide.
