Nuxfanabroad Posted November 29, 2016 Share Posted November 29, 2016 He's up there with Horvat, as 2 of my favourite young players in the game. Today Babcock comparing his high-octane, league-assault to early Orr. Probably the highest compliment you can give a kid in this game. Gotta say, I've always detested the Oil ! Can't forgive'em for the 80's :^) But now this kid is something, & I really like how he carries himself. The game gets another young star, but I'd say off-ice, it appears he exudes class & modesty as Orr did..whatta' breath of fresh air in this particular day & age! Just read a sportsnet article how he visited a young 10 yr old girl, who only has wks to live(terminal brain cancer). Got choked up, & I can't understand why young people(& their families) must endure such pain, whilst the majority of us are never dealt such cards. That said, proud to be a big fan of this game, when I see the character & moral resiliency class stars like McD share with these young fans. This game has produced a lot of these young people, that we ought to be proud of. My hat's off, Mr McDavid..We're GONNA beat you & win some Cups!(but I hope you do, as well) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
