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.
