Connor McDavid's arrival to the NHL had been talked about for years, but despite all the hype, anticipation and excitement his play through the first 11 games has managed to exceed most people's expectations.

It's remarkable when you sit back and analyze how difficult it is to play in today's NHL, never mind produce points, yet McDavid has made the transition from junior to the pros look as effortless as his skating stride.

One of the odder moves the Edmonton Oilers made this summer was the trade with the Ottawa Senators that brought Eric Gryba to town.
That’s not to say Gryba isn’t a useful NHL defenceman; he certainly is, particularly in the right circumstances. The trouble is that he was almost the exact wrong kind of depth defenceman to add for the Oilers.
