Tavares is now 6 points back of Duchene. True, he's played two more games, but the gap is certainly shrinking...and if he's broken out of his scoring slump, it could be a very tight race down to the end.
Duchene does have other intangibles on his side--his team is competing for the playoffs (this is an advantage over Tavares only), and he's been a great two way player, not just a scorer. He looks like a legitimate superstar out there--flying past opponents, making quick turns and dangles, and setting up great plays.
But the bottom line is, if he isn't at least a solid 7 points or so above the rest in rookie scoring when it's all said and done, I think the trophy may go to Myers.
