watch the highlights...McDavid had some pretty passes to set up Draisaitl, but he created on his own and set up McDavid for just as many. Also last year he didn't play with Mcavid and still put up big numbers.
You know, if you had used this kind of defense for a Sabres player you'd be told something about "blah blah blah, results." or "they didn't make the playoffs" or something similar. I believe the Sabres have an $8.5m player who put up nearly the same numbers for his team and no one is convinced he's worth it.
