    When Elias doesn't record a point the team is 1-12-2

    When he does record a point the team is 19-8-3.

    If a team shuts down Pettersson it's basically a guaranteed 2 point for them much like if you shutdown McDavid in Edmonton. You could probably make a case for finishing Top 3 in MVP voting if he somehow drags this team to the playoffs.

    I think Petey will be better than Matthews but not Mcdavid.

    OK let's not get ahead of ourselves here...

    EP40 is great, but who the hell can say with 100% confidence that he's gonna be better than McD in 3 years...???

    Hot take prediction..

    Pettersson will average above 20% in shooting accuracy for his career.

    I don't care if the stats say his shooting percentage isn't sustainable.. he's just in a different league than everyone when it comes to his skill set.

    Dahlin is 19 points back which is a lot. But let’s for arguments sake say he closes the gap a bit and finishes 10 points behind EP40 and he’s a defenseman.

    EP40 - 70 points
    RD - 60 points as a defensman.

    Who wins the Calder?

    Wait... What if an undrafted free-agent signs with the Ducks and scores 50 down the stretch and takes the Ducks to the playoffs? Would he win the Calder? Edit: I forgot to mention that this player is a GOALIE!!! OMG Does that stir your jimmies or what?

    You could argue he also has a real shot at the Lady Byng. 6 minutes in penalties is unreal.

    I'd say atm Carter Hart has a better shot at the Calder than Dahlin does. If either of them wins it over Pettersson though I wouldn't even be mad because it means they must have done something unreal down the stretch.

    I believe @Melvin posted the stats on how much McDavid carries the Oilers. Just an unbelievable amount, with virtually no help outside of Draisaitl.

    McDavid is and will always be better.

    Well Paul Kariya just said Elias reminds him of Gretzky and he has no ceiling. Just saying anything is possible but regardless we've got ourselves a gem !

    Even if there's no ceiling on Pettersson, McDavid is still flying somewhere above the house. There's no comparison to be had between the two.

    Time will tell and no I don't think Elias is there yet. McDavid is great but he's not Gretzky or Mario great. He's not that far ahead of a few players in league already. Though I agree McDavid is the best right now.

    Here’s the interview from tonight with Kariya. His comments on Pettersson are right at the start. He says Pete reminds him of Gretzky and that he himself wishes he had a shot like Pettersson’s.

    I don't like giving it a hard no like everyone else seems to. A "soft no" is fine. I doubt Pettersson will be as good as McDavid, but to just write him off now as a player who will never be on McDavid's level seems a little premature. He's already blown right through a number of expectations and ceilings and it seems foolish to say "but this time."

    He has no ceiling. It is extremely unlikely he gets to a McDavid level, but it's not impossible either.

    Great to see Paul back in BC and being around hockey again, even if it’s just as a fan.
