Same % they had the season before, also with mcdavid, draisaitl and Nuge
Our power play keeps rolling, Kahun either works on Drais line or they go back to DRY. Either way he's putting up 75 points. As mentioned earlier in the thread he rocked 89 in 56 last season.
Also with tippett. Oh wait.
So they keep the same coaches and same elite PP players, then add another very high end PP player and it’ll get worse?
the only thing that will limit the Oilers PP this season is game management by officials who think giving the Oilers PP’s gives them an unfair advantage.
74p with 32g/42a.
I'm going with 90 points. Drai's pace last year would have scored him 88 points in a 56 game season and he scored 89 in the first 56 last year. I think he keeps that pace.
Regression to the mean.
There’s no way Oilers pp can stay at near 30% even if they added prime time Bobby Orr.
His point per game likely comes down - hard to match what he did offensively last year. He likely get more defensive responsibilities though, which was evident from Tippetts usage of the second line last game. I say he gets around low to mid 60 points with much better all around stats.
That's ridiculous. If they added prime Bobby Orr the powerplay would definitely be over 30%. The powerplay yesterday looked good they just didn't put the puck in the net. Watch other teams' powerplays and then watch the Oilers and it's completely understandable why the Oilers had a PP% that was that high last year. It wasn't because of luck, it's because McDavid and Draisaitl are that good in the offensive end when they have time and space.
So will McDavid just become an average player as well this year?
