    I picked the right player name. Never a doubt!

    Congrats Leon.

    Conn Smythe next up?...

    My clever play in words choosing this name when most people thought Leon was riding McD's coat tails should yield bonus points..;)

    Leon the line driver.

    A healthy and rested Leon and a healthy and rested Connor should present a world of problems for whoever we play. Leon was a beast the last time that we were in the playoffs so I could see it if we get to the promised land :)

    Congrats Draisaitl!! Well deserved! Extremely grateful to have such a amazing player on this team!!
    I feel we haven't even seen the best of him yet. Having McDavid and Draisaitl on the same team is such a blessing for the Oilers!!!

    “Oddly, neither New York Rangers nor Toronto Maple Leafs have ever boasted an Art Ross winner. The last Ranger to lead the league in points was Bryan Hextall Sr. (Ron’s grandpa, for goodness sakes) in 1941-42, while Toronto’s drought now stretches to 81 seasons since Gordie Drillon won the pre-Ross scoring title way back in 1937-38. And here we all thought 1967 was a long time ago!

    The Oil on the other hand have copped 10 titles in 40 NHL seasons, a tidy 25% conversion rate. “

    hard to do with a hockey player.

    It's amazing how good he is (doubt anyone predicted this), how much he has improved over the last few years, and how much room he still has to grow his game. He has become my favorite player on the Oilers, which is incredible since we also have McDavid. Congrats Leon!

    Remember all those morons who said that he was over-paid?

    He's 4th in points since signing the contract, and 1st since the start of 2018-19. Ovechkin is the only player who has scored more goals since October 2018 (99 to 93). I'm not sure even the biggest Draisaitl homer would have predicted this. He just exploded.

    And this attitude probably has a lot to do with it:
