It's irrelevant that Tavares wasn't the top scorer, he was better than Hodgson. There's a reason he won MVP; and no one complained about, over Hodgson. Maybe the 2005 team together was more dominant, but no individual player was as good as Tavares in 2009,. What do you think RNH is going to do, put up 25 points?
RNH is a better player now than Tavares was in 09; it's not even debatable. Last year RNH had better numbers in the NHL than Tavares did the year after he played in the WJC. You are also claiming that 18-year-old Tavares is a better player than 18-year-old Crosby. Canada didn't have the offensive depth in 09 that they have this year or in 05. That lead to Tavares getting tons of gravy offensive and PP time whenever they needed a goal. This year and in 05 Canada had 3 lines that can score on a regular basis.
