    With Mcdavid behind in GP at only three, he already still has 5 points, a point for every Edmonton goal.

    How long until he takes over the league lead in points?

    probably 21-30 games and that's being conservative

    most likely less if you ask me. he's on another level

    Oilers look baaaaaad once again and yet I wouldn't bet against him being in the lead by Game 20.

    McDavid will not be anywhere near the top in goals or points this year. Book it.

    Conservatively around 30 game/halfway point, worst case, the final quarter of the season.

    This is providing he has an injury free season.

    Interesting to add that Kucherov and Stamkos had similar paces to what Matthews is putting up right now at the beginning of last season, and Mcdavid was nowhere to be seen in the top 20 of points, and still managed to absolutely blow everyone out of the water.

    There will be a few players ahead of him. Not just #34.

    McDavid will pass Matthews with ease disregarding health.

    Ok unless you think Matthews is gonna have a 100+ point season you’ll be proven wrong.

    voted 21-30

    he's pretty far back right now but the gap should narrow quite a bit as he catches up in games played,then it's just a matter of time

    Matthews at 16 in 7... let's say he scores 20 in the next 20 games to give him 36 in 27. McDavid would need 31 in the next 24 to catch him, which is probably a pretty sustainable pace for him. I'll say 21-30 to be on the conservative side

    they stayed hot for quite a while longer than just this too

    Stamkos had 35 points in his first 19 games last year(33 in 19 for Kucherov)

    Last season he got 52ish points in his last 30ish games, so its definitely a pace Mcd can hold.

    I'm always baffled when there is a "he will get injured" poll option for players that aren't injury prone. Explain how you vote for that option... Do you feel it in your bones?

    Anyone can get hurt, but i suppose i mostly wanted to differentiate the "He wont catch up" crowd from the "He wont get a chance to catch up" crowd.

    Didn't McDavid really take off once the Oilers were pretty much eliminated from playoff contention? Maybe the pressure was too much when the games mattered...
