Ugh - how many Cups is Edmonton going to win, small chance McDavid leaves them in 5 years. This team is going to be a dynasty, Puljujarvi is still yet to come and they will no doubt trade RNH for something decent in return.

Man, remember when the Oilers were a joke and a cautionary tale that tanking doesn't work?

They won a lottery with the best prospect probably in NHL history. They get Dylan Strome and things are different right now. Tanking works only if you get lucky as well.

And Leon Draisaitl is an absolute stud, man I wish we took him.

What if the ducks decided to forgo the usual tightly contested, 1 goal heartbreaker game 6 loss and instead get their customary game 7 meltdown out of their system tonight?

That's about the only hope I have for them winning this series.

Rakall has really opened my eyes this playoff series, he's a impact player night in night out. Very good hockey player.

Ducks are super talented, Carlyle is mediocre. Nick Ritchie is going to be a monster power forward, Getzlaf has plenty left, so many good young dmen. How this blowout happened I don't know, it was 4-0 when I turned it on - how many of the goals were softies Gibson should have had?

I think we have it backwards. Can McDavid play away from Draisatl?

One of my best friends was right - I was agonizing over which of the two Sams we were going to take and he said 'idiot, it's not close, you pick Draisaitl'.

Sam needs to have a huge offseason, I wish he would have gotten an invite for the Worlds.

Stokes was very adamant about Draisaitl that entire season. Everyone fought with him, he deserves a ton of credit. Drai is by far and away the best player in that draft.

I just watched some of the highlights from the Ducks-Oilers game. Wow, that was some of the worst goaltending I've seen.

The number of the day is 30%.

btw Oilers should have traded Drai instead of Hall. Drai for Parayko would have made them unstoppable.

I'm starting to think you're as clueless as that Ales Teichman guy Harrington called out on twitter

Stokes comes out with some crazy stuff but he is looking pretty good here.

Draisaitl is a beast.

The deflected puck in the neutral zone, caught with a skate to the lucky finish was a delightful play.

Random latching on... sometimes you look foolish, sometimes you don't.

I was a Draisaitl proponent back in the day as well, but none of that matters anymore.

Let's see what Reinhart does at his natural position next season, he's far from a finished product.

And to keep things on topic, Draisaitl is my playoff MVP at the moment.
