Two years into his tenure as general manager, Craig MacTavish has an uninspiring record. He’s had some good moves, some bad moves, and overall failed to significantly improve the team he inherited from fired predecessor Steve Tambellini.
On Saturday he was handed a lifeline in the form of Connor McDavid, the finest amateur prospect the NHL has seen since at least Sidney Crosby a decade ago. The stagnant team and the errors along the way aren’t going to matter, as long as he can get it right from here on out.

What a weekend! Who would have ever expected that we'd start off this week with a McDavid in our pocket? All I want to do is talk about our new toy. All I want to do is climb a building and sing our new saviour's praises from the rooftop! Unfortunately, these mailbag questions came in before the lottery BUT THEY'RE STILL GOOD - YOU'LL SEE! With that said, feel free to send all your McDavid related questions to firstname.lastname@example.org for next week's mailbag. Until then, let's learn something together. Enjoy.

I am literally happier than if I had won the actual lottery.
