2009 NHL Entry Draft: John Tavares and OHL Forwards

This is a look at every CSB-ranked OHL forward for the 2009 NHL Entry Draft and a look at a couple of draft re-entries too. John Tavares is the headliner, but there are some very good (and relatively unheralded) guys out there too.

Weight told Newsday that during the visit, Tavares queried him about the pressure of being a hot prospect. ``He said, `If I go two or three games without a point . . . ' '' Weight said to Newsday. ``I said, `I know. I lived in Edmonton. I know how that is.' He was getting it when he was 15 years old. He said, `Then I go out and I'm hungry and I get the sixth and seventh goal in a 7-3 win, and I'm (portrayed as) hungry for points.' ''

Timing And Luck

One of the very best blogs out there is YKOil's - unfortunately he doesn't do a lot of articles. This one is on Brian Burke's impeccable timing, and it's one of the most interesting analytical pieces I've read in some time.

I've always felt Hedman should be the No. 1 pick. The reason we flip-flopped Duchene and Tavares [Redline ranks Tavares #3 for the upcoming draft] is due to the fact Tavares' effort level has been underwhelming through the first two rounds of the playoffs. Tavares may score 40 or 50 goals a season, but he's one-dimensional. If he's not scoring, he's not helping. Right now, he's the third-best draft-eligible forward on his own team behind Nazem Kadri and Phil Varone. Tavares (9-10-19) and Varone (10-8-18) have about the same number of points, but Varone is plus-16, and Tavares is even. London has a great power play, and Tavares is getting all his points on the power play. Five-on-five, Tavares has been nothing short of a liability. His attitude of entitlement stinks.
