John Tavares..That name can bring up many a comment or argument or whatever you want..but is this kid overexposed, or soon to be? And before people start going overboard here, I am not saying he will be #1 or not, I am simply asking if playing 4 full years of major junior hockey can overexpose you by your draft year? I have had arguments and conversations over the #1 pick for 08', and how some think Stamkos is untouchable now. Not going down that road, so dont bother commenting on that. But that got me thinking about Tavares and how he is rated #1 so early and for so many years that by the time the draft comes, could he get bypassed by someone who has come out of nowhere? Is that possible?? This is the kid who 6 months ago people said was untouchable, but now thanks to Hedman is atleast catchable..how?? All he has done is prove that he is elite, and he still has 2 years to continue that. I guess what I am saying here is does going into the CHL at 15 years old hurt you in the long run for the draft? Dont get me wrong, this kid will have no trouble going high or making it to the NHL, but does his overexposure hurt him in the long run? Gm's like to draft on promise and future, say a player like a Hedman emerges in 09' doesnt a gm get a little more excited about what their future "could" be instead of seeing what Tavares will be after watching him play for four seasons. Does any of this make sense?? I am not down on Tavares at all, just wondering if he becomes passable by 09' because we have been spoiled watching him for four years, and we know "exactly" what he is and will be. Any thoughts??
