Connor McDavid, the superstar center of the Edmonton Oilers, is arguably one of the best players in the NHL in modern times. The fact that he would like to be paid in this manner makes perfect sense.

Apparently, Bruce Boudreau, former Canucks coach and NHL analyst, believes that Connor McDavid is headed for an enormous payday in the near future. In light of the fact that Auston Matthews' new contract is worth $13.25 million a year, it is very likely that Connor McDavid will surpass it as well.

Auston Matthews got a brand new extension, and that's got us thinking about other potential contracts.

The fact that Connor McDavid continues to break NHL records every year, in addition to being a regular playoff performer, Bruce Boudreau sees him easily surpassing both Nathan MacKinnon and Auston Matthews, at $15 million per season.

As far as McDavid is concerned, he is not looking forward to his next contract, as he is looking forward to next season and the Stanley Cup.

There was a recent mention of Jack Eichel as a player who won a Stanley Cup while earning over $10 million a season.

Considering Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl's play is always of high quality, there is no doubt that both deserve a fair amount of the cap. In any case, this player, and this team, are still fighting for a cup or bust.
