I like to imagine that Conner himself doesn't consider himself part of his team...
So what you are saying is she’s an “entrepreneur”.

I like how Mcdavid walks around his own home as if he’s walking around his girls parents house.

Hands in pocket, clenched up, looks like he would rather be snuggling with his real girlfriend, Draisaitl

I love that he showed the dining room and suggested t was for team dinners, but only had seating for eight. Wait, I guess that is accurate. McDavid, his ego, McDavid's girl friend, Draisatl, his ego, his girl friend, McDavid's flavor of the week winger, and the king of the house, the dog.

Spector is an even bigger hack than Francis. And that is really saying something.

Its funny how everything is concealed behind gargantuan steel panels, including the tiny TV to entertain a seating area for 15 people.

Oilers are a very good player. Possibly two.

They are a terrible team.

They won't even make it to the second round to face us.

Shame. Would love to put the boots to them in a surgical systems style like the Jets.

Notice that the tour didn't include the 50 shades of gray room (Oh wait that house is pretty much all Gray) and the murder dungeon.

The article actually references losing the point streak as a setback. How is that a setback? That can only be a setback if your goal is to get McDavid a huge point streak instead of winning games. The other setback was not losing the game, it was losing Keith.

The more I see McDavid play outside of his highlights the more it becomes clear why he hasn't won at any level. Watch him last night on the 2 in 1 when his team is down 2-0. He just watches the play develop from the Dallas zone off the face off and doesn't even bother to try skating back until it's a clear 2 on 1.

He did come off as a huge Oilers homer.



He also says that because of the Oilers dissapointment over last year that they won't lose in round 1 no matter who they play. But feels like a Oilers Flames round two its too soon to tell because we're only 20 games in the series.


Both were awful and Spector was plugging his awful book, but Francis is just annoying.
For sure, it's not exactly 'must-watch TV' or anything, I was just curious if anyone else caught it. It was good for a chuckle. I don't think Spector even believes himself when comparing the teams depth and defense. And of course the goaltending is so lopsided that he brought out the old 'yeah but what about the guys shooting on the goalies'. It's okay Spec.......just admit the Oilers are 2 players, that's it. Everyone else knows it.

Pretty sure we heard that going into the series against the Jets after losing the play in round to Chicago the year before.

Reminds me of a guy who walked into our office once and he wanted to build a baseball stadium. Someone in the local media got word of it and actually interviewed him. He was full of Spector logic. The best quote was:

“If I had land, investors, and approval I would start tomorrow.”

Oh is that all.

Just like the Oilers.

What evidence do they have that anything has changed besides the media’s relentless excuses and propaganda. The playoffs are 5 months away and things will not get easier for any team.

Not to mention that whole segment was one thinly veiled plug attempting to pimp out Spector's book.

I wouldnt be caught dead reading that drivel.

Wow, the comments section there is pure gold if you're mining for hypocrisy and baseless claims.

Some goodies:

Yeah, there are players on the Flames playing above their heads. What is going to happen when they come back down to their regular numbers?
Because we all know the Coilers are definitely not playing way outside their average numbers or even career bests. Of course for coiler fans, their team is always going to get even better, no matter how above the mean any one player might be, and every other teams players that are having season years will revert to the mean and cannot maintain that performance.


Quote:
Lucic is a good guy, but you really are mistaken about what drives McDavid. He has even said that wins are more important than individual achievements. I guess you missed the game where Draisaitl had an empty net and passed to a teammate to get the goal instead of padding his own stats.
Oilers Fans: McDavid is such a team player! My proof is that some other player on the team passed to someone else instead of padding stats!

Quote:
Past numbers are used to predict the future. The number all support me. Smith's numbers have always been strong after injuries. Smith has strong playoff numbers.
One of my personal favorites. Looking it up, Mike Smith had a great playoff run, 10 seasons ago in Arizona. In the 9 years since, doing some quick math, Smith is 1 and 9 in the playoffs, with 3.4 GAA and a .907 save percentage. Truly elite, I will weep that we can't have him between the pipes for the playoffs.
