Leon Draisaitl is a superb prospect. Big, smart and skilled, it’s easy to see why Edmonton keyed in on him at the 2014 Draft.
It’s equally clear that right now that he's really struggling in the NHL.

There was a time when Ryan Nugent-Hopkins—despite his enormous skill—would look awkward or unable. He certainly could not push the river ala Taylor Hall, and many nights looked overwhelmed. Our 'baby Nuge' is all grown up folks, and he's real and spectacular.

There wasn't a team in the NHL that needed to stop the bleeding as badly as the Oilers did. Luckily, we got some clotting! Final Score: 3-2 Oilers

Steven Stamkos hasn't played at Rexall Place since December 10th, 2010, a span of almost four seasons, however, he has had personal success both times he laced them up in Edmonton. He scored in a goal in both games, but the Lightning lost both times.
Oilers fans are hoping history repeats itself tonight. Let the best sniper in the game score on a wicked one-timer, but also allow the Oilers to pick up their first W of the season.
What will be more difficult for the Oilers: stopping Stamkos from scoring -- he has five goals in five games this year -- or skating away with their first victory?
