Absolutely agree with you... I wasn't trying to say he couldn't develop into that. I've seen "generational" tag line handed out on these boards far to often... No one can predict the future. We just have to wait and see.

I wouldn't be surprised to see McDavid being called/labeled generational... With what he has shown already, that might be appropriate.
