Who's the best player in the NHL: Sidney Crosby or Connor McDavid?
Connor McWho? Sidney Crosby might not be such a kid anymore, but he's still as skilled as he's always been.
McDavid might get the numbers, but that's because he is the only person on the Oilers who can get the job done. If Crosby had the opportunities his rival had, he would definitely be putting up those stats. The thing about The Kid that everyone seems to overlook is that he keeps winning.
Crosby might not be leading the league in the major categories, but he continues to put his team over the top in the win column. He has won two of the last three Stanley Cups, while McDavid has struggled to even get into the playoffs.
Until McDavid proves he can win the NHL, Crosby is the man.
Get out of the way Crosby, there's a new sheriff in town.
Connor McDavid doesn't have the luxury of playing on a team with multiple battle-tested players like his counterpart. He has to make do with a young squad and he's done marvelous dragging the Edmonton to wins. Victories in the NHL are a team effort, so he can't be blamed for other players' shortcomings. The team would be nothing without him.
The Oilers captain leads the league in game-winning goals and holds a sizeable lead over Crosby in total points. He also has an elite scoring touch as he showed with a ridiculous between the legs score.
