    Just read: https://www.tsn.ca/the-oilers-are-squandering-mcdavid-s-excellence-1.1255904

    Now I'm trying to think of a worse ratio of player ability:team performance over a sustained period of time, but can't really think of anything that comes close to a generational player missing the playoffs in (probably) 3 of 4 years. There's got to be a case of somebody in the pre-cap world though, right?

    Mario Lemieux? Turned out to have a pretty good career too.

    Give it some time.

    Ovechkin was pretty wasted last Summer.

    As great as McDavid is, I find it hard to believe he'd be able to outdrink him.

    Ovechkin during his Stanley Cup celebrations.

    Damn, two seconds too slow.

    Those situational shots and goals graphs are really telling.

    Proof that the Oilers have failed completely at building around McJesus, and it shows on the ice and in the standings.

    Lemieux in the 80s, Dionne for his entire career.

    It’s way too early in his career for this yet, but it’s somewhat concerning that there is no reason at all to think things are going to improve in Edmonton any time soon.

    Marcel Dionne should be at the top of this list.

    I’m hoping the new GM can fix the team by the 2020 season. He’ll have 2 off seasons to fix this mess with a lot of contracts coming off the books at the end of next season.

    This is probably the closest to wasted you can find, so i'd say no.

    I'm pretty far from an Oilers fan but c'mon, still way too early.
