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.
And from what we've seen,

Crosby has the potential to be a 130+ point player, Malkin to be a 120+ point player, and Ovechkin definitely had 70 goal potential, John Tavares doesn't have any of that, see how they're above him potential wise? It's a whole other level. He has 100 point potential, but lots of players do, these guys are a step above that.
