From an individual standpoint, this season couldn't be going any better for John Tavares.  That continued on Monday night as Tavares scored 4 goals in the 7-5 win over Florida.  That brings Tavares to 45 goals and 86 points, both career highs.  Obviously we know to roll Tavares every time out, but where does he rank going into next season?  He's bumped his shot rate back up to an elite level and his plus-minus is by far a career best.  Is that sustainable?  It might be given how good Toronto is.  This, of course, assumes that Marner returns next season.  I don't think he'll make my top 10, but it will be very close.  At the least, Tavares will be in consideration for the wheel in a 12 team draft come September.  Let's take a look at what else happened over the last two nights:
In Wednesday's daily notes, I said that if I could, I would be looking to buy low on all of the elite goalies.  Obviously some at different levels than others, but everyone knows my love for Devan Dubnyk and the Wild as a regular season team.  I own plenty of Dubnyk stock again this year and it's been nowhere near as fun as last season when he took the league by storm.  Dubnyk was a monster on Thursday night stopping all 41 shots he faced in the 3-0 win over the Canadiens.  Four of Dubnyk's last eight starts (yes, one has bad against Toronto Wednesday but that's Toronto) have been strong so perhaps there's something building here.  Expect things for Dubnyk, and the Wild in general, to keep improving sooner than later.  Let's take a look at what else happened over the last two nights:
