just wanted to comment out of respect for the accomplishments of john tavares at the world junior championships...

he posted 4 goals with 1 assist for 5 points in 7 games as a 17 year old. i saw every game of that tourney and jt was used exclusively on the pp. that's excellent production for a kid TWO years before his draft year.

as an 18 year old, he put up a gawdy 8 goals, 7 assists, for 15 points in 6 games.

what is so incredible about his production is that this was done PRE DRAFT. a kid like strome didn't even make the team until he had already been drafted. in no way at all is that a slight against strome. that's just showing how unreal john tavares was at world junior championships.
