No, he isn't on the same level as McDavid, but he was always considered a future face of whoever's franchise drafted him. Murray acted publicly like getting stuck with the #2 pick (which everyone knew would be Eichel) was some horrible consolation prize when in reality, he was still getting a top level player. I'm just saying, that would have rubbed me the wrong way if I were in Eichel's shoes.
