2. Connor McDavid
The next best player in the world has arrived, and I don’t use that term lightly. Anyone that has followed me on Twitter for the past few years knows how glowingly I speak of Sidney Crosby.
Anytime that someone compares a player to Sidney Crosby, I’m quick to shoot it down. Blackhawks fans have been eager to declare Kane and Toews better than Sid, but neither hold a candle to him. With McDavid, comes the first legitimate Sidney Crosby comparison.
He’s only been in the league two years and he’s already won a scoring title and a league MVP. With Leon Draisaitl behind him, McDavid will quickly turn the Oilers back into a contender in the Western Conference.
