John Tavares is in a bad slump as he has not scored in his last 12 games. The Maple Leafs have scored 39 even strength goals in that span and not only has Tavares not scored, he has been on the ice for only seven goals. The talented center has 48 points in 51 games after being held pointless in a 10-7 win over Detroit Saturday. He should snap out of it soon so if you are able to get him in a fantasy trade from a disgruntled fellow manager, do so.
