Tavares could take over the OHL scoring lead tonight.

The OHL's current leading scorer, Tyler Donati, isn't playing because the Bulls are out of action tonight, and Tavares' Generals are facing the third worst team in the league, the St. Michael's Majors. Donati has a 2 point cushion on Tavares.

If Tavares scores 3 points or more tonight and takes over the scoring lead, will he be the youngest player to have led the OHL in scoring?

Kane has 85 points in 38 games - he'll likely pass both of them within a week or so.

Impressive pace, in a way, but Kane has two years on Tavares and I think the whole point of this thread was to ask if Tavares would be the youngest player to ever lead the league in scoring... which would be even more impressive...

You have to of course consider the fact that most would be rookies at his age as well, while Tavares is playing in his second season.

He leads the league in scoring now, if you consider goals scored as the tie breaker.

Man oh man, Tavares is sick. I wonder how many teams are gonna tank the 08/09 season to get a crack at him.

How much is he gonna score in his 4th season in the OHL? He scored 88 points last year, on pace for a ridiculous 133 this year. Whats gonna happen in two years? Just wow.

He's only gone point-less 3 games this season and only once in the last 26 games.

The guy should look at playing in europe in the future -- he'll get nothing more out of the CHL.

It's been suggested that (as cliched as this sounds) he could be the Lemieux to Crosby's Gretzky, in terms of joining the league a bit later but having that same comparably astounding offensive pedigree, and maybe duking it out for the Art Ross with Sid after he's been established for a few years.

Still far too early to come to any conclusions, but it's a tantalising prospect. My only regret is that my Penguins will be to good by 2009 to have a chance at drafting him.

It's hard to give up NHL Draft day as the most exciting sports day of the year!

All I know about this kid is that he is young and good. Can someone give me a rundown of his strengths and weaknesses so that I can ****talk him in the future?

Just his skating. That's it.

This kid is just insane.

To dominate a league that's usually dominated by 18-20 year olds, as a 16 year old, and even more impressive, come on strong as a 15 year old rookie...

I just don't know what more to say about him.

Excellent stickhandling, passing and shooting. Last year his skating was good, but it seems he's improved and likely will every year as he gets stronger and more physically mature. Good on-ice vision, and very mature for his age.

Seems like he'll be a franchise player one day, so I doubt you'll have much cause to "****-talk" him unless your name is Ovechkin or Crosby.

JT had a 7 point night tonight... 4 goals, 3 assists, +5.

50 goals in 44 games as a 16 year old.

The kid is something else.

thought i would give this a bump.

Tavares did take over the league lead tonight with a 7pt game (4g 3a). He also reached the 50 goal marker with his last goal which was an empty netter.

he now leads the OHL by 7pts
leads the OHL by 9 goals (17 on 3rd place)


I am not trying to hype since I havent even seen the kid play, but those numbers are getting close to video game levels. Pretty rediculous

Maybe the Flyers should take a note from the Pens and just suck it up for half a decade.

JT's 4 goals tonight were as follows:

Even Strenght
Short Handed
Power Play
Empty Netter

All he needed was the penalty shot. Congrats on 50 in 44 games.

Tavares is no Lemieux.

I agree. His skating was hampered earlier in the year as he played for quite a while with a knee brace, but it really has come a long way.

And the scary thing is...as many points as he gets seemingly every game, he always stands out on plays that don't result in goals, and could easily get 2 or more extra points every game.

I remember people saying the samething about Crosby. He turned out fine playing in the CHL.

Tavares is playing outstanding but he hasn't done everything yet. He needs to play like this in the playoffs. Lead his team to the Memorial Cup. Until he does that I don't think Europe should be an option.

The thing is though....Crosby only played 2 seasons for Rimouski.

This is already John's 2nd year, and he still has a full 2 seasons before he even gets drafted. With another full year of eligibility in the O after that. He's going to outgrow his competition very quickly.
