    Field because injury risk, cold stretch by McDavid, hot stretch by any of the many people in the field (or multiple in the field...).

    Mainly injury risk though. McDavid when healthy has consistently shown that he's a dominant offensive force.

    He was already on a completely different level than the field last year but now looks even faster and stated that he wanted to score more this year. As his team mates said in training camp, “He is going to torch this league.”

    McDavid for sure unless an injury occurs.

    Going with the field just because of potential injury, otherwise easily McDavid.

    You think there's a better chance McDavid misses some significant time due to injury rather than staying healthy this year?

    in general you should NEVER pick against the field, however in certain situations you do.

    an example:

    who will win the NBA finals this year: GSW or the field?

    this poll is exactly like the question above

    McDavid wins barring injury. It is not even a choice.

    Crosby who is a similar level talent only won two art rosses. So the odds in any given year are too low to bet anything except the field.

    Crosby was injury prone though. Also McDavid doesn't have a prime Ovi or Malkin to go up against. Not yet at least.

    as good as McDavid is betting against the field for the Art Ross is just dumb

    this is a trophy that 13 different people have won in the past 17 seasons

    takes a Gretzky level talent to justify that

    I'll take the field.

    But this is simply playing percentages.
