So last night we were sitting around watching the World Cup of Hockey match on the TV waiting for the NHL season to begin. Whether or not the tournament is a real thing or a brilliant negotiating tactic against the Olympics remains to be seen.
What does not remain to be seen is the impact of Connor McDavid.

This is a tale of trial and error, failure, determination, and triumph. Oh and fancy advanced statistics. So many fancy statistics.

It was announced a few days back that the Octane Dance Team will not be riding in the back of the pickup truck with the Gretzky statue as the team moves to Rogers Place. This was met with shouts of "good riddance!" by some and continued cheerleader shaming by others. I for one liked the Octane, saw great value in what they did and will miss them now that they are gone.

After trade deadline came and went I found myself with a lot of time on my hands. No massive trades to wrap my brain around, no giant clean up of my Eberle mechandise collection to box up for all eternity. No arranging for a fire sale of YakCity NationGear (side note: Yak City gear on sale here! Make an investment in lasting MemeWear that will remain relevant for at least 20 more games).

Oh snap! Coach McLellan went off last night in his post game press conference. If you haven't already watched the highlights and jumped up and down clapping your hands with glee, it can be found above. I was double excited because it was OilersNation's own hero Jason Gregor asking the questions that McLellan was smashing out of the park, pitch after pitch, after pitch.
