    Hmmm I didn’t see Lucic become a “lethal offensive weapon” when paired with Mcdavid.

    You honestly have no idea what you are talking about and it’s not clinging if I am stating a fact. Yes, it’s a fact that he’s never gotten above 70 points.

    Lucic is finished as a top end player. Legs seem gone and his hands were always stone

    LOL, NOT-A-CHANCE, swap teams and linemates Marner would outscore Draisaitl by 20 points and actually play a little 2 way game to boot. there are 3 zones on the ice, Draisaitl plays hard in one of them.

    It could be close in the future but Gaudreau is still a step above, Gaudreau is elite right now but I suspect Marner to be there soon enough, Draisaitl is too lazy to ever be elite

    I don’t think it’s really possible to have an under rated player playing for a Canadian franchise, but draisaitl is definitely the second best oilers forward after Mcdavid since Doug weight

    I am too lazy to dig up the highlight but he did float really bad on the Evander Kane goal. But Oilers are pretty messed up so maybe he would backcheck harder on a good team.

    It’s possible if he plays on Mcdavids wing. Toronto is still a much better team overall then Edmonton so he might not outsxore Draisaitl in this situation. Edmonton has no Dmen that can pass the l puck up the ice and our transition game is just give the puck to Mcdavid.

    add 20 points to Marner and he'd be outscoring McDavid.
    Oh you Leafs fans, don't ever change

    Yep, a 23 yr old 32 goal scorer 66 pts player at the 55 game mark is not worth 8.5? In what world...

    Draisaitl has been on the ice with McDavid 63.79% of the time this year. Slightly more than his ELC year.

    Don’t bother posting if you dont watch a player play. You take draisaitl off the team and the team gets worse, thus by having him on the team he makes the team better proving your point moot.

    There’s plenty of players on the oilers you could remove and the team would be better for it, Leon is not one of them.

    Yes, it is also a fact that does not tell us how talented he is.

    You dishonestly said I do not know what I am talking about. I really do.
