McDavid can talk smack about Edmonton, but knowing their management, they will draft him anyways. Eric Lindros had his agent do the trash talking
Steve Francis outright said no Vancouver
The funny thing is, McDavid and Hall could be fantastic... but we said the same thing about the rest of their picks
Whatever it is, McDavid's a good kid and he's gonna go to Deadmonton, pay his "dues" and decide his future that way. From now till draft day, all McDavid has to do is play his PR cards right and go win the Memorial Cup. Whether a Hall/McDavid combo is coachable is yet to be seen.
and then this

If he did he would not be the first, Eric Lindros is one guy that comes to mind in the NHL also Steve Francis with the Grizzlies, John Elway in the NFL and I'm sure there are a bunch more.
McDavid isn't stupid, his parents aren't stupid they've told him to embrace wherever he goes and don't be that guy.
not directing this entirely at you quasi, but just in general:
it actually may be stupid not to boycott edmonton for McJesus. Edmonton has obviously shown how mis managed they are. The likes of Souray revealing about how poorly staff dealt with his injury situation. And then you have the travesty that is Edmonton itself (Pronger and Heatley obviously did not want to live there)
Him and his parent's are concerned with his career. Staying the course and just letting a shit hole draft you is quite stupid id say. Kind of like going to Arizona (which is the asshole of the league right now).
It's not self centered. Or egotistic. He and his family are looking out for himself. Which is what all the franchises are doing-- looking after themselves. Its akin to not asking for proper working conditions.
(this is like calling players GREEDY when they are holding out due to contract negotiations. Those people have neeed a dose of business reality)
for his career trajectory, he has enough PR pull and hype to be able to pull a Lindros. I hope he does go for it. It should be a nice wake the fuck up slap to Deadmonton's brass
long story short: fuck Edmonton. Calgary got their shit together quicker with no trace of 3 no1 CONSECUTIVE draft pics. Read that again, THREE CONSECUTIVE FIRST OVERALL PICKS. Just how much are the Edmonton brass jerking off the NHL execs?
[23-07, 02:03] shawn79 i find that at vietnamese place they cut ur hair like they cut grass
[23-07, 02:03] shawn79 do u go to vietnamese places for haircuts
Welp...at least someone is excited to go to a shitty organization unlike McCrybaby
ud cry too if u were going to edmonton to start your professional career, sharing spot light with 3 other 1st overall picks and a couple of elite prospects. Also, the management might stunt his development not reaching full potential
RNH is not gonna settle for #2 center going 1st OA. He was on fire at the end of the season before his injury and was a promising future Oilers captain... but since oilers has the #1 pick, i wonder what D oilers can fetch for RNH?
