Before he got hurt this season:
17 GP 14G 9A 23pts
Wouldve scored 60 and won the rocket richard if he played all season. And probably competed with sid for points due to tampas major increase in offense this year. Just based on his on pace numbers.
Oh well. Next season...
Pretty small sample size to start projecting whether he's be competing for points race, but based on history and start to the season, pretty reasonable to think he'd be right there in goals.
However, Tavares currently is competing with Sid for points. Granted, he's been really hot lately and needed 8pts in 2 nights to creep up there and he's still trailing by a signficant amount, so he might cool off and fade away, not sure. Tavares has always been a great player, but right around a point per game. The question is: is he just on a really hot streak now and wil even out a bit down the stretch, or is he having his break out year? The latter might be more likely, since he is only 23 (same for Stamkos actually)
