Isn't he like 20 points behind the scoring race? Back in the day the best player was the guy who had the best point total. McDavid doesn't make his linemates better. Which would be the 20 points he needs.

The question in the original article in the Athletic was not "who do you think is the best player?" it was something like "who do you think is the most complete player?".

 

I definitely agree that Crosby is the most complete player.

McDavid is the most flashy player. But the last two years he has struggled to put up the most points. I call it Bure 2.0

I'm sure playing in Edmonton could have something to do with it... not to mention frustration over teammates failing to bury chances, but I always think that the major difference between Crosby and McDavid is Crosby's willingness to go get the puck for himself. Especially in the corners. If McDavid doesn't strip someone of the puck in the neutral zone, he has to wait for someone else to get him the puck.

Love how Torts made best and worst coach to play for lists

I thought that was good too. I was like, "Woah, Torts made the want to play for list?" Then I read the next category and everything made more sense. :lol:

Funny Torterella top 5 in both coach lists. Must have polled a lot of Pens to bump Philly into the top 5 least favourite away cities :lol:

Put McDavid with Kucherov and Points line backing him up, nothing against Stamkos he’s great too, but I’d bet those two guys would challenge Yzerman for third most points in a single season ever.   EDM has virtually no secondary scoring and when they break it up it doesn’t fix things (Draisatl).  And they don’t have much of a defense making it easier on them either.  There’s a reason he’s won two Lyndsay/Pearson’s in a row, the players themselves know how amazing he is, but he’s doomed in EDM (they are in CAP hell) ... Unless something drastic occurs, I don’t think he’s going to stay once he’s a free agent, if he even lasts that long (and asks for a trade).

I can’t count past 10... I missed two questions!

 

Should the current playoff format be changed?

Yes - 60%

No - 40%

 

Should NHL players go to the Olympics?

Yes - 99%

No - 1%

 

The 1% is just 1 person quoted as saying “you can’t take three weeks off”.
