Tavares will probably never lead the league in scoring. I can see him consistently in the 3-6 range for the next 5 years though.

I think Galenchyuk can be in the top 3-6 range in 5 years when Crosby, Malkin etc are in their 30's and he hits his prime. I think we are going to see a shift from the defensive mentality that has held the scoring back on this team for the last 30 years.

I understand that Kopitar levels are more realistic but to say he doesn't have Tavares levels is wrong. If things went differently, no ACL problem, it's entirely possible he could have went #1.

I think he is in the same calibre of players like Hall, Seguin, RNH and Tavares. I agree he is a step behind them but that might be because he lost an entire year.
