Rank them based "only" on "potential". RNH vs Tavares vs Landeskog vs Hall.

It comes down to Tavares and Nugent and I'm going to homer vote for Nugent. The way he dominated as a just turned 18 year old weighing 170 pounds at most was just insane. You could make a similar case for Tavares also who is way more proven.

Tavares is the answer to this question unless one of Crosby, Malkin, Stamkos or Ovechkin is included, and rightfully so. In fact just purely on potential, I'd even be tempted to take Tavares over the latter two.

Tavares with ease for me.


After that, I'd go RNH, then Landeskog, then Hall.

Nugent put up 2 less points in 20 less games in his rookie year.

I went with Tavares, but RNH is definately a valid option. All 4 of them are really. 3 1st overalls and a 2nd overall.. Very high potential in all of them. I personally fell that Landeskog and Hall will be the PPG, captain, dynamic goal scoring types while Tavares and RNH will be big point producing superstar playmakers.

Tavares' vision is just too good to pass up though.. He's also been steadily improving and I see a big season for him post-lockout.

Tavares has the potential to surpass 65goals112points? Heck no.


RNH for me, then Tavares but its about as close as you can get, then slight edge to Hall before Landeskog.

Tavares isn't the goal scorer that Ovechkin is/was.

I still think he has the potential to break 100 points, they need to put more talent around him.

Put him on the Tavares' rookie year Islanders, and I dont think he gets that.

and in jt's rookie season rookie scoring was way down it could also be argued that jt was injured during his entire cold streak during his rookie season and playing on pain killers, before jt was boarded by pronger and lost a few teeth he was top 5 in the league in scoring and then towards the end of the season he started putting up points at that same pace again

and ignore the fact that tavares's ppg has increased drastically every season while rnh's ppg isnt much better this season than it was last despite playing in a lesser league, tavares' off season work ethic, hockey IQ and training separate him

Guys been in the league 3 years, broke 100 points 0 times. Ovechkin's potential is consistent 50goal+100p, and no less year after year, only 2 other players in the league have that kind of potential, Crosby and Malkin.

Crosby, Malkin, Stamkos, and Ovechkin are on a different level than Tavares and I seriously doubt you would take him over the others.

I never said he was Ovechkin good, since he's not. Ovechkin made a case for the best player in the league for a few years.

Also, Ovechkin HAS played with much better talent around him all these years. Not saying that's why he's been so good, because it's not (was always an ovy fan). But Tavares has had the pleasure of playing with the insane playmaking and scoring abilities of Michael Grabner, Matt Moulson, and Frans Nielsson all these years. He's pretty much carried Grabner and Moulson back to relevancy.

and ovechkin hasnt done anything like that since tavares' rookie season

when all is said and done during the overlapping part of their careers jt outscores ovy by a wide margin

Linemates?

Also ES scoring for top forwards is a greater indicator of success.

What is Landeskog doing in this poll anyways as almost everyone counts scoring and not intangibles for forwards.

I think Tavares will be the better scorer and goal scorer of the 2 centers.

Hall might become the "best player", followed by any mix of the 3 depending on how strong RHN and his overall game gets.

Tavares PPG
Season1 - .65
Season2 - .85

RNH PPG
Season1 - .84
Season2 - 1.05 (in the AHL yes, but hey you brought it up)

Looks to me like their PPG have improved at the same rate over their first two seasons.

Since when is a 1.05ppg not a big difference from .84?

Tavares was not top-5 in scoring when he slowed down his rookie season, he had a great start, was almost ppg and on 30 goal pace then hit a giant rookie wall.

And you do know that it is MUCH easier to "drastically" improve a 0.65ppg pace then it is to improve on a 0.84 right?
