I would have to go with Tavares. With Hartnell injured, Giroux's numbers are going to suffer for a period of time. Vanek and Marleau are really streaky. If you look at last year as an example, you will notice Vanek came out of the gate on fire and than just died down, and Marleau has a tendency to go stretches of 4-7 games without producing a point at random times. Given the shortened schedule if either falls into one of their slumps it could be pretty costly. Datsyuk is pretty darn consistent and I really have no knock on him at all. But I feel like Tavares was probably a little better than him last year and is trending up whereas Dats may just stay stagnant or trend slightly down. Hope this helps.
