    Since Jan 9 of 2018 including pre season, Connor Mcdavid has 30 goals in 42 games. My question is do you think Connor is capable of hitting 50 in 50 at some point in his career?

    No. Could he hit 50 in a season? Probably. Could he hit 60 in a season? Maybe. 50 in 50 is just not reasonable though

    And I say that as someone who thinks there’s a very good chance that he goes down as being a top 5 player all time

    I don't think so.

    50 goals? Yes
    60 goals? Probably
    50 in 50? No

    50 in 38 would be the target.

    Really unlikely but I'm unwilling to say McDavid can't do anything at this point. He continues to blow me away every year.

    Of course there's a chance. Is it possible? Yes. Is it probable? No.

    If I were to bet on any player doing it, it would be him for sure, but I still don't think it will happen.

    What will happen in the next few years though, is that he will take top place in most points in a season this century.

    If Ovechkin can't, McDavid won't.

    if Rattie can keep up the same smart play in the regular season. I'd put money on him hitting 30 goals playing with McDavid.

    He could be the Blair MacDonald of this oilers era.


    with the dynamics of what the McDavid line has shown to date, I'd say no to 50 in 50.
    I'd be dancing if he could get 50 over the season, though!

    Ovechkin peaked at 65 in this era. McDavid is better than Ovechkin in terms of generating scoring chances for himself, but he lacks several things that Ovie has
    1) shoot-first mentality to the extreme
    2) top tier shooting ability
    3) linked to the above, powerplay role (he's not a shooter there)

    Honestly McDavid could score 50 goals at even strength alone but would still be hard pressed to flirt with 60. 60 over a full season is the absolute peak I see for him. I think 100 assists would be more likely for him TBH.

    I would say no. He will score more goals than he has but not 50/50.

    The poll is poor as well. Two options are the same and the only option of no he won't is that nobody will do it again.

    I would pick that McD won't do it. But I wouldn't rule out somebody in the hockey future doing it.

    Realistically, Rattie is the only guy in league at the moment that has a chance.

    No, but for all the talk about Laine and Matthews, I am going out on a limb that he beats them both this year lol.

    I think Laine gets 50 this year. he's my pick to win the Richard trophy.
    I know not stepping outside the box with that pick, but he's that good of a scorer.

    If he sets that goal for himself, then yes.

    I went with the 4 choice since "It's highly unlikely that we'll see that in this era of hockey" wasn't there.

    I think that top-20/top-25 is all but assured at this point to be honest, barring some crazy injury issue. I won't be surprised to see him mentioned as a top-10 all-time player when all is said and done.

    There is a decent chance that he pots 50 goals once or twice in his career though, just not in 50 games.
