Sabres? Oilers? Coyotes? Leafs? ‘Canes? — McDavid would be happy to play for any of them

41 Comments

Based on the Q&A Connor McDavid did recently with the Toronto Sun, it doesn’t sound like we have to worry about an Eric Lindros-type situation at this summer’s draft.

McDavid, one of the most highly touted junior prospects of all time, was asked for his take on five possible future homes. He proceeded to call Buffalo “a special place,” Arizona “a fun opportunity,” Edmonton “an awesome place as well,” Toronto a potential “dream come true,” and Carolina “an awesome possibility.”

Those are, of course, the five teams with the best odds of winning Saturday’s lottery and drafting McDavid. And based on his answers, we assume he’s equally excited at the prospect of playing for any of the other nine teams with a chance.

I mean, obviously not Philadelphia, but any of the other ones for sure.

Just kidding, Flyers fans! He’d be happy to go there too. He’d be happy to go anywhere!

(But obviously not New Jersey.)
