A few months out we were on McDavid watch with many skeptical if he would be able to hit the 100 point mark in this shortened season. However, as we approached the end of the season, McDavid kept putting up more and more points. It was last night against the Canucks on May 8th that McDavid finally hit 100 points in 53 games. Furthermore, the Oilers still have three more games, thus McDavid will still have time to add to his point total.

McDavid’s unreal season though has sparked up some more debate about where he lands amongst the greats and whether he is the best player in hockey and sport right now. It’s tough to answer the first with McDavid still early in his career, but I think it is officially time to hand over the “best hockey player in the world right now” torch over to McDavid.

I’m sure there are plenty people out there who will refute the idea using the “weak North division” as a basis to their argument; and I get that. The teams, defense, and goaltending aren’t as strong but what other play could actually do this? The answer is nobody. McDavid is likely already the most skilled player the NHL has ever seen. He’s also the youngest player across the four major sports to dominate at the level he currently is.

No matter what happens in McDavid’s future, he likely to go down as one of the best to ever play. Although he could really strengthen his reputation by hoisting Lord Stanley at some point during his career. Nevertheless, that’s what McDavid and the Oilers will be focusing on as they have locked in the second seed in the North.
