Don't you argue against how everyone has to be politically correct all the time too?
So who cares that he's confident in himself, if he didn't think he could be the best, he wouldn't be anywhere near as good as he is.
I don't have a problem with him being confident I mean heck he would be the 1 in almost every other draft with the exception of the Crosby and maybe Stamkos one.
The problem is Eichel said he will be better than McDavid and he believes he is the best - not one of - but the best player in the draft and that's cocky..he had to the chance to redeem himself a bit by saying "I let emotions get the better of me..So sorry I know this draft is full of great players and hopefully I can become one of them for Buffalo in the future...I will as hard as I can to achieve that goal and if that draws comparisons McDavid I would be very honored "
It's a much nicer tone instead of saying flat out that he is the best. For the record I think McDavid and Eichel will be super super stars but I don't think anyone can protect who the better player will be. Maybe it was just a bad choice of words for Eichel he'll learn hopefully.
