Sidney Crosby Considers Connor McDavid The Best Player In The NHL

from Mike Zeisberger of NHL.com,

Sidney Crosby considers Connor McDavid to be the top player in the National Hockey League.

"I think McDavid has set himself apart just based on the awards and the accolades he's gotten and the consistency he's had," the Pittsburgh Penguins captain told NHL.com on Wednesday. "I think it's fair to say it's an easy pick just because of that."...

Crosby, 31, said the influx of young talent in the League has produced highlight-reel moments from young skilled players like centers Auston Matthews (21) of the Toronto Maple Leafs and Nathan MacKinnon (23) of the Colorado Avalanche. But it's McDavid's resume in his first three-plus seasons in the NHL that has allowed the Oilers forward to separate himself from the pack.

"There are so many different guys," Crosby said. "Matthews has emerged this year and it really looks like he's taken even another step. I think there's a lot of guys in the conversation. But it's hard to argue (McDavid). He's been really consistent. He's won scoring titles, MVPs. So yeah, that's an easy one to pick."
