There must be some politics behind this insane overhyping.
I saw McDavid have a few nice flashes out there, but what can you expect when you are playing against the best in the world who are mostly 4 or 3 years more physically mature and developed? It's not like he was given very much ice time either. The difference in strength of a 15 year old to a 19 year old is huge. Very few 16 year olds have played for Team Canada and they usually go as the 13th forward. Crosby wasn't the go to guy at 16 either and he turned out okay.

The fact that Connor isn't draft eligible until 2015 and he is doing this well already is crazy. There are very few 2013's playing and most of them are projected top ten draft picks. Do you see any 2014's playing?
