Yeah I really like the Tavares comparison. I always was a bit concerned about every damn member of the front office throwing around the franchise player tag. That's something his reps can point to and ask for more money potentially.
That argument doesn't hold as much water when you point to Tavares. They are equally as important to their team as the other. Not saying they are equal players, but their level of importance is fairly similar.
