Taveres doesn't have great line mates and I don't see fans complain like people do of Kessel. People will come to realize that Kessel and Phaneuf are support pieces and are not sufficient as core blocks. That is, Kessel and Phaneuf cannot or do not make players around them better like Taveres or a Shea Weber could. That is not a knock on Kessel or Phaneuf but just to say they are notch below these other elite and top line players.
