Break Gretzky's NHL records and I'll be a believer...The former NHLer who said the isles should draft Hedman was Butch Goring. He was of the opinion that defense wins championships, and that the isles already had some good young talent up front. You can make a case either way, but the bottom line is that the islanders havent had an elite sniper/50 goal scorer since ziggy palffy. Tavares broke Gretzkys OHL record in points........im pretty sure he fits into that category.
BTW - Tavares' Junior team is losing 2 games to one against Windsor in the semi-finals.
