Why not let him achieve something substantial first and talk about it when it's warranted in the insane volume that they do now. Not just after a bunch of OHL games and a nearly invisible SSS game. Because really, who is Connor McDavid in Hockey? Nobody, yet.
26 points in 20 ohl games as a 15 year old is exceptional. The hype is well warranted. He's playing against other teams top defenders too, guys that tend to be 19 or 20. Say what you want, but I'm highly impressed
