    McDavid has 3 points so far and the Oilers have 3 goals.

    How can a team that drafted #1 overall three times in a row and 4 times in 6 years be so bad?

    Literally no secondary scoring.

    Last season, with McDavid off the ice the Oilers scored 1.82 goals/60 at 5v5. Worst group of wingers in the league

    Twice as many draft lottery wins as playoff appearances since the 2005 lockout.

    Their secondary scoring is playing in New Jersey and Brooklyn.

    I’m not even mad anymore. It’s actually kinda funny. Like it’s absurd.

    It's always somebody eh? The whole system in Edmonton is just toxic. They need to nuke that whole thing and start brand new with McDavid, Drai, Nurse, and maube Klef.

    Eichel is captain and GM of Buffalo so I'm sure McDavid could handle that role too.

    It's unfortunate that we're going to get no Mcdavid in the playoffs again. Usually it'd way too early to say something like that but the oilers brought back practically the same team that was slow and terrible last year. Not sure what they thought would happen.

    The lineup really is abysmal, it shouldn't be possible to build a lineup like that in their situation.

    Coach is garbage as well.
