All 3 at one point or another have had WORSE linemates then Tavares and have produces elite numbers, Tavares hasn't shown he can do the same. Took him 3 seasons to reach ppg, those other 3 came out ppg off the bat.
It seems to me like you're having trouble grasping the concept of potential. Nobody is saying that Tavares is as good as Stamkos or Ovechkin right now, or that he even necessarily will be, I'm saying he has the potential to be. Personally, I don't think he will, but from a pure potential standpoint I think he is absolutely on their level. Potential is not how good a player is or even how good they will be, potential is how good a player can be. Will Tavares have a season as good as Ovechkin's best seasons? Probably not, but I think he has the skill that it's within the realm of possibility.
