Connor McDavid is a fucking cheat code.
After getting fisted in game one, McDavid put the entire team in his fanny pack and went for a skate last night finishing with a pedestrian hat trick in a 6-3 win tying the series w Chicago at 1 game apiece.
His hand-eye, speed, strength, and vision are almost unfair to watch and I got a distinct impression The Oilers only lose when he tries to play a team game.
Here are all three tallies, each one as hard to calculate as the other including a bank shot for his third which I’m convinced was intentional.

I wonder what goes through the minds of Toews and Kane when they watch McDavid. Over the past decade, They’ve established themselves as superstars and last night they could only watch as McDavid dissected them in a fucking phone booth.
Like what even is this?? pic.twitter.com/bRKk3TY5Bk

If you don’t think that Connor McDavid is the best hockey player to ever live, you’re wrong.

Conor McDavid is the most skilled hockey player to ever play the game and It’s not even close. Other than Sid, no one sees or plays the game like Conor.
Enjoy it. Suck it up. Gretzky hasn’t played in 21 years, and as a Wayne-phile, this is the closest you’ll get to watch a player play who’s co much better than everyone else in the NHL that you can’t find a modern-day comparative.
Connor McDavid just proved again last night why he’s the best player in the world. His skills are like nothing I’ve ever seen before. #McJesus

Oilers, Pens Stanley cup final. I’ve said it for weeks and I’m dying on that prediction after watching McDavid disembowel the Blackhawks for fun.
