But in the off-season, it’s a different story.

Imagine the scene: you’re playing in your usual league and suddenly #97 of the Edmonton Oilers comes onto the ice. It must be a pretty special feeling.
Basically, McDavid showed up in Ontario in a finals game. He was up against Quinton Byfield, of all people, but it was the Oilers’ captain who really caught the eye.
Understandably, he didn’t exactly give it his all. Otherwise, it would have been a bit unfair, let’s face it.
But the fact remains that perhaps he didn’t try hard enough , as his club lost by a score of 9-4. The championship was lost by the club in blue.

People on the scene were talking about how McDavid didn’t put in any effort, but was still stronger than everyone else. That’s what he had to do in such a case, we’ll say.
Hats off to him for doing that. He probably made a lot of people’s day. And when I say the day, I mean the week… and the month… and the year.
– Philly contract.
– Tryout season has begun.
