Connor is far and away the worlds best player and it isn’t close
I think they’re just trying to goad you Doyle.

Although, in case You didn’t know, McDavid’s league leading assists actually means he doesn’t utilize his teammates. :lol:

Who would division leading Toronto be more afraid to face in the playoffs, hart trophy winner Connor McDavid or Bubble Demko?

I rest my case.
We are all Jim Benning.

But for picking one guy... I’d take mcdavid

Maybe that doesn’t make sense... :lol:
Connor is unreal but one on 5 rushes dont fly come playoff time. He doesn't utilize his teammates as well as Dry which clearly makes Dry your better player
You're right, of course, but maybe bringing in Tyson Dee Man Blaster Barrie is what they've needed to finally go deep in the playoffs. Gotta build from the net out, right?

McDavid is the Canadian Pavel Bure. He’s dazzling for sure, should be a winger. I like Matthew’s. He has more tools than McDavid. Better centre, more of a complete game

Lmfao fuck you guys must have splurged for the good crack this weekend. Crazy Lennie out of town? :lol: :lol: :lol:

The guy is scoring at almost 2 points a game and he should switch to wing. Maybe he should play goal. Mathews is nowhere near Connor. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Beags gets skates on pucks. He’s a board guy and nothing else.

Is an art form. Pay close attention to Beages board work. He braces both hands off the glass and gets his skates going sniffing out the puck. Greener loves this

He's wily...one stick or 2 skates? Its why he has a stanley cup playing center in the NHL while McDavid has none

I'd like to see McDavid get the Fedorov treatment, try him out on D. Maybe better suited to his skills, and he can learn how to pass the puck by flipping it to centre or chipping it off the glass.

McDavid is a great player. Will go down as one of the all time greats. Top 5 for sure. It’s just fun to pick on him

I hope some day, Pettersson can be as good as McDavid. :wink: Remember when McDavid's career almost ended early, first year, scary broken collar bone? Pettersson might be a tad overrated by some but when he's thinking, he might be the best we have, though I still think that may eventually be Hughes.
