    2009 draft re-do

    Do you still take JT over Duchene?

    It may be a case of Homerism, but I think if you switch there places than Tavares would be the all star and Duchene would be the one sitting in the basement of the NHL. At this point they are still both very close but you gotta give Tavares the benefit of the doubt and say if he had a playoff team around him like Duchene does in Colorado, then he'd be putting up a ton of point. Either way JT is the best player on our team leading us in goals and points and on pace for 31 goals and 31 assists. Just watching him you can tell he's gonna be great, leading the NHL in OT winners, he's just clutch and it just seems like the puck always gravitates to him and he always gravitates toward the net. His goal scoring instincts seem just ridiculous.

    Once again, subliminally it may be just blind homerism but if the trade of Duchene for Tavares was on the table, there's not a chance I'd do it.

    I love Duchene, and I loved him going into the draft, but I feel that Tavares' ceiling is higher than his, and I would take him all over again.

    JT for the reasons mentioned above. i'm sure islanders fans would end up being just as happy with MD. however, at the time JT was the overwhelming choice of the fan base. if the islanders had chosen anyone other than JT back then it would have been the last straw for a lot of disgruntled fans.

    Tavares and Duchene will lwys be compared, for the remainder of their careers.

    Last season, Duchene had 24 goals and 31 assists on the 95 point Avs. Tavares had 24 goals and 30 assists on the 79 point Islanders

    This season, Duchene has 20 goals and 26 assists on the 56 point (in 55 games) Avs. Tavares had 20 goals and 25 assists on the 45 point (In 55 games) Isles.

    Tavares has played 134 games and is 44-55-99 in those games. Duchene has played 136 games, and is 44-57-101 in those games.

    I think it just makes for great debate in the future, although I still feel since JT obviously doesnt have the team around him Duchene does and JT is almost magical how great his instincts are in passing and getting the puck when he's in good scoring position, etc., he is the best choice still. It's great to see them so even so far though
