To say John Tavares’ star has fallen would be a stretch, but it seems he’s no longer the consensus No. 1 pick.
A little more than a year ago, there was a push to change the NHL entry draft rules to accommodate Tavares as a 17-year-old, while the Leafs were examining whether they could fast-track him on a minor-league contract, amid talk that an all-out rebuild could see a last-place Toronto team pick him first overall.
Now, some NHL scouts contacted by Sun Media are wondering if his No. 1 ranking will be challenged in the coming season.
