This in from Hockey Hall of Fame writer Eric Duhatschek of The Athletic, his prediction on Oilers Now that Connor McDavid will score 130 points this year, at least if he follows the path of Wayne Gretzky: “I look at Gretzky’s first year, he tied Marcel Dionne for scoring title, Dionne gets it because of the goal thing. Second year, he’s 29 points clear. Third year, 65 points. And then the next year, 76. So the difference between your year one and year three in Wayne Gretkzy’s career, he exploded. He exploded. I think the same thing is going to happen to McDavid.”

Duhatschek predicts McDavid will win the scoring title by 40 points, with him getting 130 points and Sidney Crosby getting 90. “I see no ceiling for this guy. That’s not to say that Eichel isn’t a great player, and Matthews isn’t a great player, and Laine isn’t a great player. They’re all great players. But I think there’s McDavid and there’s everybody else, just in terms of what more can these guys do.”

Ryan Strome just trying to fit in as Oilers try to find footing .
With the Oilers in an early-season spiral, the integration of Ryan Strome has been put on the back burner. Perhaps not the best thing for one of Edmonton’s newcomers.The team that dealt away the $6-million player — in this case Jordan Eberle — for the guy making $2.5 million on the final year of his deal, always does its best to portray things as a hockey trade. But, frankly, there’s a reason one guys makes more than twice what the other does.
