First off, I'll come clean. I'm an oilers fan, and heres how I feel about this McDavid situation.
Nothing, and I mean NOTHING can fix the oilers problems until management from the coke head megalomaniac owner down to the trainers are gone. The team has built a losing culture and no players want to go somewhere where there is a losing culture. There has been no accountability for mistakes made with contracts, trades, management hiring and so forth. No team has has this pathetic of a run in any of my memories. I'm embarrassed that we are in this situation and even more embarrassed that an 18 year old kid is unhappy about making it to the NHL because our team is so fucking shitty. Edmonton has a tough hand dealt to them, because the city is a fucking shithole, so they basically need to pay players a premium to be there. Before, at least we could satisfy hockey loving, hockey players by allowing them to be a part of what was one of the most impressive histories in recent memory. That has been all but erased by the embarrassment of the KLOWE and Katz dick suck festival that has been happening since 2006. Until they show players that they are serious about turning the team around, there is no hope, McDavid or not.
I still remember holding the stanley cup with Billy Ranford back in 1990. Its one of my first vivid memories. At this point I'd be happy holding a fucking playoff ticket and a 13 dollar budweiser cup.

Literal breakdown of the word incredible is "not credible."

incredible
/ɪnˈkrɛdəbəl/
adjective
1.
beyond belief or understanding; unbelievable

He's gonna make a couple hundred million dollars. He's hardly worthy of being called "poor fucking kid."

Pretty sure the modified NTC is only valid for the first season?

Or is it all 3 years with him being able to list 5 teams?

Now that the Oilers are stacked beyond stacked in the top 6 maybe they will finally deal one of them away for some solid D and a goalie.

aaaaaaaaaaaaad...... McDavid went to where we all knew he would. Whatevs. It's how it works. I cheer for the Oilers due to fam living there and their 80's dynasty but with a team so stacked and loyal(if not the most loyal) fans in the NHL it's sad to watch it get squandered away by shitty management. It would seem that cleaning house is the only way.

heartbreaker for the Jets . I hope they at least get a home win!

The Oilers finished 26th in goal scoring this season and haven't cracked the top half of the league in scoring since '05-'06 (15th) and have actually been trending down since 2011.

They aren't as stacked up front as you'd hope a team with three 1st overall picks in its top 6 would be.

Also, of note, they had a -90 goal differential this past season. Bubble teams are generally around even; McJesus isn't going to make up a 90-goal differential by himself.

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.
