    I voted Matthews. McDavid is alright I guess but being a part of the Leafs organization makes Matthews better. It's just a fact.

    @Soli

    Not sure which part of my post you liked...

    The part where I said I hope the Oilers prove me wrong...or the part where I was going to lose my perfect GDT record.

    :laugh:

    Relax. I'm not aiming for a scientifically accurate, statistically significant poll. It's a GDT. Have some fun! You would think my tongue in cheek comments after each poll option would have given that away.

    For Malkin I think you need to change this to "I am score".

    I feel like we haven't beaten Pittsburgh in a while, as was the case with Nashville. Incoming auto loss!

    Let's hope someone is flying tonight..not just McD...

    We need to get some of the others going...even if it's just another line... McD can create something out of nothing so give him a couple of fast kids and see what comes of it.

    I'd try for a bit....

    Yama - McD - JP
    Rieder - RNH - Drai
    whatever

    Also, I'd try some traditional setups on the PP...2 defencemen and the same lines..let them develop some chemistry.

    JP a shooter on the lw and EB with a point shot... on the 1st pp.
    #1
    JP-Yama-McD
    Nurse-Bouch

    Klef shooting on the left and give AL a chance to develop some offense (hard shot but inaccurate) from his traditional position on the right.
    #2
    Rieder-RNH-Drai
    Klef-Larsson

    Depending on the teams, you might need to substitute Lucic in to either one of the pp's.

    Best player in the world is definitely McDavid. Why does MacKinnon have a vote over Ovi though? Not to mention the Matthews votes which I hope aren't serious.

    This really bothers me. I've seen a lot of this.

    People get upset if TM pulls out the blender, yet when he does stick with something people want change. This isn't something recent either. Goes back to game one of this year.

    Will they get their 2nd goal of the season with McDavid off the ice?
    Will the defense score their 1st regulation goal of the season?
    Will the 2nd line score their 1st goal of the season?
    Will the bottom 6 score their 1st point of the season?

    Lets hope that I don't have to copy and paste these questions into any more GDT's. This is getting pathetic Oilers, lets see something from somebody who doesn't have a beautiful flow and rockets attached to their skates.

    Kassian will score today.

    ...Assuming he's not scratched of course.

    JJ should be scratched over Kassian, but I suppose it would be harder to slide Marody into the lineup if that were so
