But Tavares has had the pleasure of playing with the insane playmaking and scoring abilities of Michael Grabner, Matt Moulson, and Frans Nielsson all these years. He's pretty much carried Grabner and Moulson back to relevancy.
Oh look, people downplaying Moulson again to pimp Tavares. And Grabner had a steller rookie season, and was not dependent on Tavares considering he spent most of his time with Nielson and Okposo.

And your an Ovy fan right? Ovechkin scored 65 goals before backstrom had even become relevant, he had as much goals as backstrom had points that season. not to mention he scored 100 points with linemates worst then Tavares ever had his rookie season. Tavares doesn't have Ovechkin potential.

when all is said and done during the overlapping part of their careers jt outscores ovy by a wide margin
and JT would be lucky to have half the career Ovechkin did in only 5 years of his career...
