The Oilers are lucky to watch Connor McDavid every night, and with No. 97 now doing it on the biggest stage, analyst P.K. Subban has offered him major praise.

After a slow start to the Stanley Cup Finals, Connor McDavid has turned it on in the last two games, to the point where he has now surpassed Wayne Gretzky in some facets. With an assist in Game Four, McDavid broke the record for most assists in a single playoff run, and now, with 41 points in just 23 games played, and with his success under the brightest lights, he's drawing all the praise that he deserves.
Former NHLer P.K. Subban, who is serving on the ESPN desk for this series was the most notable of names to call out McDavid's success, believing he should be drawing comparisons to the best in history after this performance.
'I'm just sick and tired of people talking to me about McDavid and that he isn't the greatest right now," Subban opined shortly after the final horn.

The beloved former Canadiens defenseman didn't stop there however, with his next statement drawing comparisons from McDavid to the person many consider the NBA's G.O.A.T, Michael Jordan.
"Everybody, not one person in the building thinks he's going to do this," he continued. "Tic tac toe puts him in the 'McBlender' and the main ingredient in the 'McBlender'. His guys reach it. A lot of guys reach it. McDavid's teaching Stanley Cup Final. 'You reach, I teach,' Michael Jordan used to say it. Conor McDavid's saying it now and he's doing it on the biggest stage."

While he's not had the Championship success that MJ enjoyed in the 1990's, McDavid is absolutely flying right now on another level, and if he leads his team back from an 0-3 hole, there's little debate that his career trajectory is on pace to be the NHL's best of all time.
