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)

Considering stammer has 3 90+ points seasons already and 57 points in 48 games last year it'd be very reasonable to assume his projected points would be pretty accurate and he would have been at or above 100 this year

Considering he had 3 seasons finishing with 90 odd points and a 4th in a row after that with 57 in 48 games (projecting to be in the 90s again over 82 games), I think a safer bet would be him finishing in the 90s again.  Not to say over 100 would be out of the question, but he has been a very consistent 90+ point player over the past 4 years, not sure why that would change.  Sure, 23 over 17 games projects to 110, but its far too small a sample size to do that.

 

For example, look at his past 4 years

 

2013 - 26pts in first 17 games (finish on pace for 97 over 82 vs projected 125...not even close)

2012 - 18pts in first 17 games (finished with 97 vs projected 87...hotter later in year)

2011 - 31pts in first 17 games (finished with 91 vs projected 150...not even close)

2010 - 20pts in first 17 games (finished with 95 vs projected 96...pretty good)

Defensively, who is considered the superior player? I have heard conflicting arguments for both players.

Man, if there was only a way to get both of them on the same team. Oh wait...

I have watched both play, but it' was Tavares that made me say "damn, what if he was a Wing" I think it's his all around game
