The wait is finally over. Oilersnation is ready to explode with excitement. I sense most fans are not expecting Connor McDavid to deliver a playoff spot in his inaugural NHL campaign, but you've been patiently waiting 172 days to see McDavid play his first NHL game.
The anticipation has been building ever since Bill Daly unveiled the Oilers logo on the gold card back on April 18th. Fans across the NHL are excited for another season, but in Edmonton there is a renewed passion among a fanbase that hasn't been this enthusiastic since the spring of 2006.

I have been in love with Jordan Leslie Eberle since before time began. In fact I originally learned of him in a vision I had three previous lives before this current incarnation of my present body.

It’s been a key weakness for the Edmonton Oilers for literally years now, and despite a busy offseason it isn’t clear that the options available on defence have dramatically improved from what was on the roster a year ago. Now it’s up to Todd McLellan to get the most out of an uncertain group. How is he going to do it?

Tonight is the night you've been waiting for since Bill Daly flipped that golden lottery card with the Oilers logo on it. Tonight is the night we get the chance to watch Connor McDavid play his first game for the Edmonton Oilers, and regain the sense of Oilers pride that may have been lost along the way. To say it's been a long wait would be the understatement of the century. We've all been through a lot over these past nine years, but miraculously hope never died.

When the dust settles on this 2015-2016 season there’s every chance that my heart will be broken again if the Oilers miss the playoffs. Still, I write this on the eve of the season and I still hold out hope.
