Just did it in the Knights/Otters game! Faster then that JT kid... and he's a rookie too...
...and he's 2007 eligible, JT is 2009 eligible... the comparaison isn't impressive at all, the guy is 22 months older...
London >>> Oshawa too.
His hands are GOLD
Kane making a STRONG STRONG case to be number 1 pick in this june draft. Also he's got pretty amazing playmaker playing with him in kostitsyn and Gagner
I agree, that's not a fair comparison. Tavares is only 16.
I wasn't comparing the two just said he did it faster... they are also completely different players too
While the comparison isn't valid (ie, Tavares' feat is much more astounding), it's a poor choice of words to say that it isn't impressive. The list of 18-year-olds to score 50 in the OHL isn't very long, so it's still very impressive, whether he's on a good team or not.
If you were a frenchman well you're choice of words would be poor too!
The comparaison isn't impressive, but the accomplishment of scoring 50 is in fact impressive. If I had to re-write my post, I would say the comparaison is insignificant.
Hey, no worries. Your English is much better than my French!
I think "invalid" would be an even better choice of words than "insignificant." But, as we agree, impressive nonetheless.
Kane's on fire lately.
He's on a 12 game goal scoring streak... 23 goals in his last 12.
Edit: 51 in 47
Please come to the Flyers
maybe another 88 wearing the orange and black
Sweet, we need to hurry up the progress of Stevens son and get a #4 on his jersey.
Didn't Tavares get his 50 goals in like 44 games or something like that, and the only reason that Kane is a rookie and JT isn't is because this is Kanes first year in the OHL, even though he's 2 years older than Tavares?
Man, people like you really astound me.
Your jumping to assumptions there buddy... Kane missed games cause of the world juniors so he was behind in games in JT. When I put that in there it wasn't a slight to him. I'm a Knights fan and I wanted JT to win Rookie of the Year not Sergei Kostitsyn even though he was a much better player last year.
As well this year with both Kane and Gagner so far my vote for rookie of the year is Michael Del Zotto not these two even though I see them all the time.
i think it a pretty fair comparisent jt has alot better size than kane
I was not comparing the two in ANY way at all... completely different game styles but both score alot of goals...
p.s Sergei is good.
Just throwing it out there, and WOW Tavares is slow.
he has alot better everything than kane...that is why it isnt a fair comparison
Wow.. ok Tavares may be younger and bigger but Kane is faster, and may have the better hands.
Seriously? Kane is quicker, more creative, better vision, better passer. JT is a tremendous pure goal scorer, but there's a lot of things he's not.
Tavares scored 50 goals in 44 games.
Its still hard to say how much better so and so is over so and so 2...for all we know Tavares will continue to score this amount well into 22 months from now and will be around the same totals. Chances are he will be much more, however Kane is still a great talent and will be a better all around player imo.
I'm quite sure his point totals will be much higher as the Generals improve and Tavares himself does the same, he is only 16 and still has plenty of time to get better. I could see him averaging 3 points per game in a very near future as eventually, some overagers and pro-graduating players will be replaced by 16 years old players.
EDIT : I misread your post, sorry...
What surprises me is that the services didn't think much of Kane until after the WJCs. Meanwhile there were a handful of posters who felt quite confident that Kane, although trailing guys like Gagner this fall, would get accustomed to the league and go to town. So now Kane is angling in on #1 (just like EJ last year)...where was he last year when he was tearing up Kessel's NTDP records against college teams? Probably the same place Kessel ended up as he was panned by many while playing in the NCAAs.
Likewise, haven't seen too many 2008 services lists but I bet its pretty predictable...is it just a general underappreciation of non-CHL players?
Whats the best comparison for Kane?
