At first I thought they had Leon on there and they were just talking and bitching over him lol. I was like, wow, what is this nonsense.

Well if anything can turn a middle aged guy into a triggered 10 year old boy, apparently it's discussing the Oilers.

But beyond the biased nature of it, it's also just really, really boring to listen to them endlessly attempting to break down what's going on with a couple guys that appear to have the personality and depth of a sheet of plywood.

Johnny at least has the semblance of a quality human being going for him, comes from a wholesome (not entitled) and humble upbringing and inspires smaller kids to believe that they can play the game the way he can at the highest level.

Why are we fixating on guys that only know how to mope and play for their individual stats.

Of course another three point game… (…is there a possibility of creating a joint “E&V=NG” thread…?!?)

Anyway.

Check out the TOI for our “heroes” tonight, so employed in order to be able to >JUST< eke out an OT win against the CaSucks…

God, that team is such a pathetic one-trick pony. I hope Nashville demolishes them on Thursday.

It is amazing teams have yet to figure out how to counteract McDavid. Usually someone dreams up a defensive strategy, but nothing seems to work or no one wants to go to the extremes to counter him.

I'd say most teams have figured it out, with very few exceptions. Flames being one of them, sadly.

You don’t have to counteract just McDavid, you have to counteract McDavid and the refs.

A lot of teams have. His point total is vastly inflated because of the power play. Doesn't he only have like 25 5v5 points?

Sportsnet's advertising for Hockey Day in Canada sounds pretty normal, but the Oilers get "Connor and the Oilers". So we're on a first name basis now with McDavid? And the center of the universe Maple Leafs don't get "Auston and the Maple Leafs" or something? Sportsnet really is all-in on the Oilers this year.

McDavid was diving so hard last night. It was pretty terrible to watch.

He knows they are useless at 5v5 so he's just drawing penalties to get PP opportunities.

It's smart really, but also just sad.

Good luck doing that in the playoffs, just like every year.

It would be good if the NHL actually starts calling the dives out with fines, as they are supposed to do. Doubt that happens though, since it is McDavid.

I watched some of the Coil vs Nucks last night and my god what a piece of work mcdavid is. horrible diver.

He leans on people and throws himself to draw a penalty. Shameful. That's your game plan? Pathetic.

I hated Gretzky but at least I respected him somewhat. This overhyped. overrated, one trick pony that is the the oilers is embarrassing. Generational player? Maybe a single offencive generational talent but he's not a complete player. So many better and complete players out there.

If Mcdavid played for anyone else he would be objectively judged and would be a much better player for it. He can do no wrong in deadmonton. Therein lies the big issue for the coilers.

The worst thing the NHL has done for McDavid since being drafted is letting him get away with it for so long that it has become part of his game. If they would have stamped it out earlier, he probably could have adapted and become better at fighting through things. Now he is just lazy and expects to draw a penalty.

It's gotten to the point where McDavid isn't just embellishing to sell something to the refs that could be a penalty. He outright fakes things, which is just bad for the game.

Its easy. All they have to do is hit them like Reaves did a while back.
