    Video compilations like that literally make me laugh out loud and shake my head in disbelief.
    McDavid is just so good its ridiculous.
    Absolutely ridiculous.

    The mind bending part....he isnt even in his prime yet. :nod:

    The acceleration at 3:16 versus Dallas is just stupid. Like it doesn't even look real.

    It literally looks like they kept every one at regular speed but fast forwarded for McD, it just doesn't even look right. His speed is just insane.

    I wonder how many points weve costed McDavid by not having good transitional puck moving D? I did the rough estimate last year and it was about 15 points. For the first 3 years, really the only good ones were Sekera and Klefbom that could move the puck effectively constantly. Luckily for Mcdavid, Nurse is looking to be the best in this area, and if McDavids performance with Nurse continues like it has for the past 2 years, McDavid could be in for a nice point boost

    The only thing we need now is a good RHD puck mover so McDavid can recieve passes in stride on his forehand

    Some really nice plays by Draisaitl in those highlights as well.

    Can't wait to see him in person four months from now. Already my favourite player to watch ever.

    Watched the video and it reminds me how good his vision on the ice really is, making passes that on the replay look impossible. He's so routine with it I almost forget how unreal that skill set actually is when it's fully on display.

    His passing ability and vision is why I think it can be so hard to play with him sometimes. You just don't expect it

    That's why Maroon did so well, just going to scoring area, he'll find you.

    McDavid is my second favourite player to watch live all-time. :)

    BUt he is the most exciting player I have ever seen live. When he gets going full tilt there is no one in my lifetime who could match him.

    I'm 40, just to give context, and I think he's easily one of the 5 most exciting players I've even seen play. Not one of the 5 BEST, although he might be that as well, but 5 most EXCITING. The things he's capable of doing, at any given moment, is almost hard to believe.

    He looks a little pissed off here. I like how he says that he wants to score more.

    They should have Hall present McDavid with his Ted Lindsay award.

    Edit: Also where's the ignore Thread button, that's a hand device.

    5 major awards already for McDavid at an early stage in his career.

    Great acceptance speech for the Lindsay.
    Love the promise at the end.

    I wonder what award their going to name after Connor? He’s going to own the Lindsay for the next decade at least. Maybe it can be a generational award?
