IE: Crosby, Ovie, Datsyuk, Zetterberg, Stamkos, St.Louis...

although it is early in the season and Tavares most likely passes Nielsen some time soon.
John Tavares is on pace for 98 points right now, while consistently getting double and triple teamed out there. The game against Carolina, there were a couple shifts where the entire team converged on him.
