The average NHL fan might know how good he is but he's some what hidden in McDavids shadow.
Many call him a #1C here, that makes him the most underrated?
I know most will say that he only produces with McDavid but that’s not true.
He produced at a 2.01 P/60 away from McDavid and played more minutes away from him.
He only produces like a top line superstar with McDavid.
In order to be considered a true Stanley Cup #1C he will need to spend an entire season away from McDavid and play at that level.
Not even close.
He's regarded as a #1C or #1RW by anyone reputable. Also shown he can be a great #2C.
He's fairly rated.
I don't think his talent is underappreciated. People correctly disagree with any notion of him being considered a 1C or listed as one of the league's best centers, but that's not necessarily to do with McDavid's shadow - he just isn't proven enough as a center to go there just yet.
Considering he had a 2.79 P/60 overall, and 2.01 puts him around guys like Zach Parise, Kevin Hayes and Max Domi? That's not good...
He's not good enough to be the best player on a championship team.
The poster was talking about 5-on-5 stats. 2.01 puts him with players like Eichel, Tavares, Backstrom, Marner, and Laine.
Tobias Rieder will hopefully be stapled to Draisaitl all season so he doesn't have a revolving door of wingers again.
More like overrated. When Connor is not making him look like an all star he is a 50-60 point centre. I mean that is not bad production but he is not a star and certainly not worth his contract.
He's pretty fairly rated.
He's a near-elite talent that can't carry a boat-anchor like Lucic.
Rofl that's a funny one
He's rated pretty evenly IMO, I wouldn't call him a 1C yet until he can play a full year centering his own line putting up 70+ points. His most common linemate last year was still McDavid even though he can center his own line.
Same tier (slightly lower) as, Mathews, Eichel, Marner, currently. Could/probably change later as they reach their potential.
A beast, young big, fast strong, IQ through the roof. Only getting better.
This post is based on absolutely nothing.
Draisaitl put up 21 points at 5-on-5 away from McDavid last season. Over an entire season that would be 39 points just at full strength. He's only going to score between 11 and 21 points in all other situations the rest of the season (PP, PK, 4-on-4, 3-on-3, empty nets)? Not a chance.
He eats Marner for lunch.
Are u mad ...that he recently beat Monahan in a poll.....
You didn't even have to respond to this one. Flames Justin over here can't even spell his own name.
Yet he was the best on a near conference finalist team with 97 on it....
I love to see the San Jose and Anaheim fans chime in right away
Marner will outscore him this season.
Put 25,000 vbucks on it?
He'll have the 15th highest cap hit in the league next year as a 23 year old. Underrated?
