why do you think mackinnon is better than mcdavid? genuine question, i'm just curious
anon,,,anon u ask the world of me and expect me to put it into words that aren’t just *waves at him frantically*? or “AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA”?
for u anon, i will try. long story short - nathan mackinnon is the best in the league bc he’s the most completely player. i think it’s really hard to be the best if you don’t play a 200ft game. like, obviously that’s not the ONLY thing that makes him the best, because plenty of players play 200ft games.
BUT. he’s a fucking beast. bro. he’s just. he’s so big and strong. like - so big. and strong. sturdy. firm. big. AAAAAAAAAAA anyway. he’s a bull in a goddamn china store when he has the puck. oh you’re one of the best defensemen in the league? SIKE nathan mackinnon just charged through you. nathan “can dangle in a phonebooth” mackinnon can fully decide “you know what, i’m better than these guys, why don’t i bust through ‘em like they’re beer leaguers” and then DOES. he’s sooo fast and can somehow get faster??? with the puck??? like……he takes two strides and SEEYA, TELL ME HOW MY ASS TASTE
but first and foremost……..he’s a team player. he makes the team better, whether that’s by taking a team friendly contract, or helping them take care of their bodies better, or just encouraging them to be the best them can be - he’d rather gush about the team before he even THINKS to talk about himself. the man grew up being compared to sidney crosby - every move he makes he’s being compared to sid. and instead of being spiteful or jealous the man??? decides “you know what, sid and i are best friends now actually and he’ll always be better than me but that’s ok because i am taller and have a personality”.
and just - idk man i can’t even put my thoughts into words but just know that i’m feeling and if u don’t have the range to agree with me that’s ok.
