50 goals in 50 games: Can Leon Draisaitl do it?


“Don’t sleep with Leon,” Zach Hyman joked. “He’s also pretty good.”

Hyman popped the question at the NHL Player Media Tour in September, answering my question about how excited he was to be joining the Edmonton Oilers and potentially playing with Connor McDavid. Verbal comments are weird.

Not that Draisaitl qualifies as a forgotten star. He’s an Art Ross Trophy winner, a Hart Trophy winner, and he’s second among all players in goals and points over the past five seasons. However, with McDavid playing at a level not seen since Mario Lemieux in the mid-1990s, is there any case that Draisaitl is… underrated? Or at least not properly. How feverish would the hockey world be if McDavid or Auston Matthews were the ones following 50 goals in 50 games?
