Well, the Kraken got their easily winnable games out of the way with...mixed results thanks to the unfortunate way hockey can be and Igor Shesterkin goalie-ing the Kraken, so now it’s time for a rough game.
Behold, the Edmonton Oilers. The Connor McDavid delivery system.
The Connor McDavid delivery system is a mostly just a concentric series of bullets to the skull of your team’s Goals-Against tally via...well...Connor McDavid.
Depending on who you ask, he’s either the unquestioned best player in the world right now, or 1a with Sidney Crosby serving as the respectable aged 1b. The Oilers are as he is; when he’s playing, they are a juggernaut. When he’s not playing, they are...profoundly...okay. Look, a team that’s only very recently experienced their first loss is not one I’m willing to write off. They are theoretically beatable!
But you have two big dilemas in Leon Draisaitl and McDavid to deal with. And it will be a very good test for the Kraken ahead of time.
Question of the Thread! Who do you think will win the Hart Trophy (MVP trophy) for the league this year?
