Like many others, I was expecting this outcome.


But it really just feels so wrong.

Makar is a fantastic player, but Q. Hughes just laid the groundwork for what will be a legendary NHL career.


Makar I look at and think, "man, that guy could win a Norris one day!"

Quinn I look at and say, "man, that guy could be the best player in the entire National Hockey League one day!"




Makar COULD WIN a norris one day......Quinn WILL BE A PERENNIAL Norris favourite year in and year out

He did, but the analytics favor Quinn. QoC, oZone/dZone starts, shot metrics, etc. I thought it might give Quinn a bit of an edge.


Either way they're both amazing young talents.
