I mean McDonagh was great sure, but before last years playoffs half of HF boards didn't even know his name, now he's apparently considered a god.

He and OEL have become so overrated because of one good showcasing of talent in the playoffs.

Its unfortunate because McDonagh particularly is a guy I want to like and want to see succeed, but this is just ridiculous.
Except McDonagh didn't make a name for himself in the playoffs. He had a dominant sophomore season, playing the toughest minutes in the NHL and doing exceptional in those. OEL too was dominant down the stretch, both have value far superior to Landeskog's.

You should tune into a Rangers game for once. West coast bias.
