Top Prospect: Connor McDavid

There has been a lot of talk about tanking in the NHL of late. I’m here to tell you, whether you love it, or hate it, tanking is the right thing to do if you’re at the bottom of the NHL standings. Especially, this season.  Connor McDavid is the most impressive young player I have seen since Sidney Crosby. The above video is a sample of McDavid’s incredible skill-set.

all indications are that this kid is the next true franchise player. Here is a small portion of a scouting report I found: “An intelligent and highly creative player who makes dynamic plays that will pull you out of your seat…a fluid skater who moves with outstanding speed, agility, solid quickness and an impressive change of pace…he controls the game whenever he touches the ice and uses his intelligence and vision to put the puck exactly where he wants it…has a very sharp, accurate shot that allows him to pick corners or small openings on the tender even while in full flight…not afraid to work the wall and retrieve pucks himself…has all the tools to become the NHL’s next superstar…just an incredible offensive talent”.

If we learned anything about Connor McDavid, it is that he is tank worthy  

With that said, if you are at the bottom of the standings and still trying to win. You are not doing the smart thing. Start tanking!
