Toews. I see this guy as Steve Yzerman already. So solid defensively and he can put up 30-40 goals a season.

Toews is a complete player, Tavares doesn't hit, doesn't play any defense and won't get his nose dirty, he scores goals, that's all

Let's see one's a rising young,nhl star and the other has not even been drafted yet.

hmm...maybe it'd be a good idea to at least wait until Tavares plays in the nhl?

Toews


My Dad is a huge Isle fan and i asked him if he would trade #1 for Toews straight up and he said no doubt. Obviously I would never do this but i was asking him hypothecally.

I voted for Tavares. He's been highly touted for so long that he's become overrated. The kid is simply bored of scoring goals at will and has been in need of higher competition for years now. I LOVE Toews, don't get me wrong, and I know it's a gamble to give up a proven asset for an unproven asset. But we are going to see a whole new Tavares when he gets to the NHL.

Right now, as-of-today? Give the guy that has proven he can be a 1st line center and Captain one of the Original-6 teams. This should even be close...

BUT, I forgot... Potential > Actual Results

On Topic though, I think Tavares will be a better spot light player, score lots of flashy goals, but do nothing more. Toews will be a more complete player, but J.T is gonna be such a goal scoring machine its gonna be hard to argue against him.

The poll question was "who do you think will be better?" not "Is Potential > than Actual Results"

And yes, Toews is an AMAZING player, but I think Tavares is going to be the better player when all is said and done.

Crosby didn't get a reputation for mailing it in like Tavares does, and Crosby is a far superior talent.

Winners do not coast, they show killer instinct, like Crosby.

"Better" is too hard to answer when Toews and Tavares are such different style players, but pretty sure Toews will be the one I would pick to have on my team over Tavares if that is what you mean by "better".

I think Kane vs. Tavares is a more interesting question. They play a more similar game. Still have to give Kane the edge here because he has proven a lot more at this point. It wouldn't surprise me much for Tavares to end up something like Zherdev.

Lets see in 2 years or so, after Tavares has played in the NHL.

But I am going to go with Tavares, call it a hope. Tavares is going to be everything he is supposed to be and if the Islanders don't take him, they will regret it.

This. Except the Zherdev point. He will at least be better than him.

Kinda surprised by all the Toews' votes. I think he is a great player, but Tavares will be better.
