19 is probably one of the easiest ages, outside of childhood, for a white guy living in the US/Canada. No real job, no rent to pay, no real worries outside of whether or not the cafe has jalapeño-bacon mac and cheese.
Now, being 19, and being Connor McDavid, is just about the easiest thing a human being can be asked to do. Just put a stick in his hand and ice under his feet and he’s somehow going to find a way to get rubber between metal, and do it regularly.
:22 seconds into tonight’s
overhyped big Eichel-McDavid matchup, it was #97 in white that got things going and made it look oh so easy.
So again, 19 years old, the hockey world at his feet, and is able to create goals out of the simplest of forechecks? That’s what we like to call the good life.
11th goal of the year, 6th point in his last 8 games, think this kid is comfy playing in his new role?
