"Not to toot the oilers horn, but"

I'm surprised he didn't throw in comparisons to the patriots, all blacks and even God himself.

It's okay to admit that players are good. I'm honestly not trying to toot the Oilers horn but a McDavid-led Oilers is like watching Jordan-led Bulls, Lebron-led Cavs, Lemieux-led Pens, etc. Just sit back and enjoy what a true generational talent can do with a solid team.
This post is hilarious! Thank you for brightening up my morning with your awful, awful words.

Hmmm ya he definitely looked like a man on a mission vs the Ducks... don't think Jordan would've passed up that shot in game 7. He was relatively ineffective for large portions of that series so if you are gonna come here and claim he is the second coming of Christ at least let him gain a track record in the playoffs first.

"It's honestly okay to admit that players are good" while talking about their own player. Don't you guys have forums where you can scratch each other's asses? I actually feel a bit sorry for you needing to jump around to other teams forums looking for other people to validate your McDavid love. It's pretty cute.

McDavid has Draisaitl (maybe) and Talbot. Also a GM who is the worst cap manager in the league.
Look at the coaches that those teams had as well. Jackson, Bob Johnson etc.

The Oilers have T-Mac who did ok against the Sharks, but once again lost his superstar and fell flat on his face against the Ducks.

We saw that in the playoffs as McDavid pulled a disappearing act against the Ducks.
Ohhhh and for the record, Jordan played his best ball during the playoffs and could could be counted on in crucial moments.

It's the Oiler way to assume sunshine and rainbows and cup parades are on their horizon. They don't know anything else.

It's out of the realm of possibility in their minds that there is anything less waiting for them.

Even though their franchise player became uninspiringly average in the most important games, logic dictates it means nothing and he will still carry the team to the promised land. Surely.

You see last season was more than a one-off season. It was the turning of a corner, for good. The long awaited sign that the Oilers would soon pass the rest of the NHL in the both the micro and macro senses. Because you see, the Oilers are exempt from flash in the pan seasons. That only happens to other teams. It's law of the hockey gods. And their dark years are over for good, because...

Because McDavid. And it's destiny.

The dynasty awaits... are you ready?

(Literally the impression/message I get from every blog post, news column, blurb I see out of that city. And we wonder why they are delusional.)

In some ways you can't blame the fans up there. The media up there, whether it be Stauffer, Spector, Jones or Matheson, are so busy blowing sunshine up the Oilers and Eskimos asses and so frigging scared to write or say anything negative about an Edmonton sports team for fear of being blackballed amongst all the shills up there that the fans take it all as the gospel truth!! When was the last time an Edmonton sports reporter asked a "tough" question in a press conference?? Unfortunately the idiot fans up there are just easily brainwashed by the "shill" media in that city.

With Sekera out, their defence is pretty much a house of cards. One injury and you'll really see them struggle. Maybe even without one.

They've loaded and loaded up on the front end over the years (and it still isn't that impressive), while trying to pass off middle of the road d-men signings to fill their top 4 and play above what they should be. So when the inevitable injuries hit, and they have AHL quality d-men playing regular shifts because they don't have any depth, they'll understand why Calgary continued to pushed over the past couple seasons to fill their top 5 the way they have, and just how important that is to winning.

You can't skip a legitimate top pairing and d depth on the way to contending. At some point, that fact is going to hit them in the side of the head like a rock. They are not nearly as close as they believe they are. And I personally find it amusing.
