No position currently in the NHL is currently as deep as center.

If Tavares' center competition was that of Hall's wing competition, he might make it in.
Karlsson is a defenseman and scored at about an even PPG with Tavares over the past 2 yrs. pro-rated over a full year, Tav would score 3 pts more than EK.
OEL had a great year this year, he's great defensively, and he was great last year. He's a fantastic player.
Pietrangelo was 4th in Norris voting last year (deservedly) and has proven himself over the last 3 years

Matt Moulson had a higher Pts/60 than Tavares this year. But he's not really a star player and he's not flashy and wasn't drafted high, so, Tavares obviously gets it done with nothing.
