Come draft day 2009, I was so nervous Snow would mess up and NOT pick Tavares. I'm so thrilled he did. Though Tavares is a different kind of player than Lafontaine, the same excitement for me exists as when I was a Lafonatine fan.
In fact, I was one of the lucky ones to be at Tavares' first NHL against the Penguins.
I believe I was at Lafontaine's 3rd game ever I believe. Both became my favorite players immediately.
I was there too. Too bad I was busy taking a piss when he scored his first career goal. I'll never live that down.
LaFontaine was such a joy back then. Tavares is the best thing to happen to this franchise since Patty. Hopefully his talent won't be wasted like LaFontaine was.
