Bump, this is kinda fun to read after the end of the season. I never posted, but was hoping for a 30-40-70 season, and he came up 1 goal and 2 assists short. Really think he had a fine second season, scoring 5 more goals and 8 more assists than last season, as well as showing more strength, speed, and improved forechecking, backchecking and better on the face-offs. Also nice seeing him taking some leadership, getting an "A" on his jersey to end the season. Good job JT, I think he's already a good player, heading towards greatness. Two years in a row he's helped turn a career minor leaguer into a decent player.

Close, but also def progression in other parts of his game.

it's a meaningless poll, nobody remembers and nobody will judge the results once the thread fades away.

but if he scores 45 goals and 52 assists I'll dig up this post and say "i told you so" - if not, no big deal.

The interwebs always remembers.

Jeez, I seem to remember times in the 70ies and 80ies where several teams alone had 5+.

I believe Johnny T will come in around 65.
Ding, ding, ding, one pt off the mark, congrats, Chapin.

I had JT pegged for 30 g, 34 a this year. Not too far off.

Next year...35 g, 40 a...let's bump this thread in 365 days.

I'll guess 36-50-86 next year...if they somehow sign or trade for a big time scorer on his line you can probably add 15 to the assists and 5-10 to the goal total.

I thought it was for next year and clicked 80-90 without reading anything. I think JT's good for 85 next year.

I must admit the "other parts of the game" part have been as impressive and more surprising than the offense.

Even in the last 10 game stretch, when he wasn't getting points, he seemed to dominate some games. Considering his supporting cast, the pure numbers have been great, but the number of scoring chances JT can generate out there, the great vision, the corner work and his line-mates scoring 50+ total goals is impressive.

But this is a guy who also back-checks. He leads by example, has learned about coverage and defensive responsibility really quickly. He also works hard, he cares about winning as much as scoring goals. He cared about Parenteau's 20th goal more than his own 30th goal. He hasn't complained at all, just worked hard and tried to get better all year.

This is a special player with his on-ice skills as much as the off-ice skills. Considering the heartless leaders before him, Tavares is much closer to the character of the GREAT Islanders of the 80s than anyone we've seen since.

Assuming JT remains healthy next year and plays a full 82 games, I'm thinking he's at 80 points. 35 goals, 45 assists.

As this team develops, it's his number of assists that will climb most dramatically.

Most encouraging sign was that his skating and his all-around game, really improved tremendously. Improvement on the scoresheet is nice, but that was even more important. He can become a dominant player in this league, quite simply.

Yup, that's the ticket, and if he exceeded that I would not be surprised.
The key will be the rturn of Streit and the filling out of our defense with NHL types rather than AHL types.
Most offense starts from the defensive zone, and Streit is so good at skating the puck up on the rush, and then getting it to the net. That makes a world of difference to forward scoring, even moreso on the power play.
+80 would not surprise me in the least.

PA can score. I don't like him, but he can score. JT will get 75-85 points next year with or without Parenteau on his wing.

What I really like, is that even in the games he didn't score points, he created offensive chances. You think if he had some of the goal scorers and playmakers other centers have (such as St Louis and Giroux, etc), how much he would have scored. That being said, he now has a bonafide 30 goal scorer on one wing, and a 20 goal scorer on the other. 80 goals by your top line isn't that bad.
