Reuniting McDavid and Draisaitl isn’t the solution

After a disheartening loss that saw the team’s losing streak extend to four games, Todd McLellan has whipped out the blender. This time, he’s going back to his old, trusty solution of putting Leon Draisaitl alongside Connor McDavid on the top line. Unfortunately, that isn’t the solution to what ails this team.

WATCH: Marody scores OT goal

Good things are happening in Bakersfield this year. The kid line of Tyler Benson, Cooper Marody, and Cameron Hebig are all producing at a point-per-game pace and the young Condors are sitting at 6-4 after 10 games.


Puljujarvi could go to AHL

Jesse Puljujarvi has had a difficult time acclimatizing himself to the NHL level this season. He’s bounced in and out of the lineup and can’t seem to frequently find playing time on Todd McLellan’s team. According to Mark Spector, the Oilers might opt to send the young Finn to AHL Bakersfield for some seasoning.
