You can fall into a fathomless YouTube hole looking at McDavid's highlights and emerge credulous, ready to proselytize on behalf of the NHL's next superstar. But a lot can change over a year, and the hype cycle is rarely kind. Get built up too much, and the run-up to the draft will be spent tearing you down, picking apart your game for any real or perceived weaknesses. It happened with Tavares and it happened with Nathan MacKinnon, the last "next Sidney Crosby." Both those two are doing all right, and McDavid will be fine too, as long as he's not held up as someone's second coming and instead judged on his own merits. Because he's pretty damned meritable already.
