John Tavares became the first player from the 2009 #NHLDraft to score 300 goals. Only two players have scored more goals since Tavares entered the League in 2009-10: Alex Ovechkin (418) and Steven Stamkos (348). #NHLStats #NJDvsTOR https://t.co/Zf320nvQrg

John Tavares is proof of the theory that you go all-in on elite talent and worry about everything else later. Top guys rarely become available, so when they do you can't be worried about future salary cap, lineup mix or positional depth. Those things are far easier to figure out
