    I'm not saying he couldn't do it, but if McDavid scores 150 points in 82 games when things are back to normal, I'll be impressed. Right now I'm seeing the same McDavid taking advantage of an abnormal season, that's all I'm saying

    How is a season where he's this far ahead of everyone else not impressive? It's literally the best any player could do with the situation at hand.

    It's not only the divisions, there is not much travel, not much wear and tear, and for McDavid keep playing this same teams over and over makes it easier for him to rack up points

    Again, McDavid is a special player, I'm just not sure he's capable of putting up 150 points in a normal 82 game season, that's the pace he's currently on in this covid season

    I don't think he will either, but the division he's playing in is still lower scoring than the NHL in 1995-96 even (when Jagr scored 149 with Lemieux to help), so he's still having one of the best offensive seasons regardless. Look how much further ahead he is than Draisaitl who plays with him obviously against the exact same teams, and he's the reigning Art Ross winner who just paced for 128 points last season. It just seems odd to not be able to recognize this season for how great it truly is even if he wouldn't score 150 in a normal season.

    The Oilers and McDavid have dealt with more schedule changes and back to backs/3 in 4 than any team not named Montreal or Vancouver. They may not have had much travel except they have way more than most teams in the states this year. But ever since the Habs games were postponed they have had a very difficult schedule none of which was caused by actions of their own. What is the next excuse?

    He passed 91???

    With how many games left?


    This f***in guy is insane! In a shortened season at that... He's the best player right now... And probably will be for his whole career. Hands down. I think he will edge out Crosby... But he will have to win atleast 1 cup or it will be such a huge disappointment.

    I say if he doesn't win a cup in the next 6-7years he should opt out of Edmonton.. sadly it seems like the organization is holding him back... And I will definitely be glad to eat crow if I'm wrong.

    I'm one of the few who doesn't take this season seriously. My team is even doing very well but I'm not too impressed. It's a weird season with weird divisional games constantly interrupted by covid. I can't wait for things to get back to normal, and again, if McDavid scores 150 points in 82 games, I'll post how impressed I am

    Wait, now that McDavid is closing in on the century mark we start hearing that ‘they didn’t have to travel much this season’? How does that make any sense? The Oilers have had to play opponents in 4 different time zones. Do people not realize how big Canada is??

    He's at 91 with 6 games left.
    4 against Canucks.
    2 against Habs.

    There is still travel but they go and stay at one place instead of traveling all over Canada and US, playing back to backs, going back home, playing a game or two, then traveling again etc...

    Again, a lot less wear and tear on players.

    Then how come no other player besides McDavid and Matthews are having standout seasons from their previous ones?

    Again, all these excuses as to why McDavid is having a super human season also applies to Draisatl who absolutely torched the league last year.

    it’s not just a COVID season, McDavid is nuts.

    Here's a good example of comparing different eras. It's like saying Genghis Khan's army from the 1200s was not as great because they stand no chance against the modern armies of the US, Russia, China, etc. Point being is always compare the greats by what they did in their eras.

    needs 9 more points in 6 more games now with 4 of those games being against Vancouver

    9 points in 6 games is still a decent amount but if I were handicapping betting odds for this he would definitely be favored to hit it at this point

    The best part is the Oilers are top 3-5 in travel every year, and no one makes excuses for other divisions stars putting up points traveling less in the normal divisions.

    Mackinnon is on a 115 point pace in 82 games. Don't think he can do that in a regular normal season.

    Makar is at PPG, not sure if he can do that in a normal season.

    That's just couple of the guys on my team I follow that are taking advantage of the covid season.

    Draisaitl on 120 point pace also, not sure he can do it in a normal season.

    Mack has previously paced 110 and 107 points, playing 69 and 74 games, very close to a full season and very close to 115 point pace, twice. Makar had 50 in 57 as a rookie, you don't think he can improve from his rookie year?

    Draisaitl scored 105 the other year and last year he paced 127, which is better than his pace this year.

    Any athlete from the 50's would be higher skilled, better coached, a better goaltender and faster now. On the opposite McDavid wouldn't to be the player we're seeing right now if he was in the 50's. So saying 50's players wouldn't crack the AHL is basically saying capable NHL athletes were suddenly born in the 80's and 90's. How implausible does that sound? In 1955, the 19th best Canadian forward was a second line player. There's no reason to believe that guy wouldn't still be the 19th best Canadian forward today.

    McDavid is only objectively better if he you put him face to face with vintage Howe. So shouldn't half the actual NHL be ranked ahead of him in all time lists? Isn't it a silly way to look at this? Unfortunately they won't ever face so we should avoid using hypothetical time travel to compare the greatness of two players.

    Ontario unfortunately.
    Draisaitl had 110 points in 71 games last season. Was that not a normal 71 games? Do you think he wouldn't have gotten any points if the final 11 games were played? 120 points+ was all but guaranteed.
