McDavid was frustrated last night, threw an elbow at Kotkaniemi's head. Only got 2 minutes, and given his stature, I'm surprised he even got that.


Now he got a $5k fine. In a normal season he makes $152k/game. Does someone making $12.5 million even know what $5k is? How the hell are these fines so damn small? Ridiculous. For me, $5k would keep from doing almost anything. When the dude makes more/game than I do in a year? Not exactly a deterrent.


I imagine him at the pawn shop now, trying to hawk one of his 50 XBoxes.


:lol:

Did they ever.

I know McDavid has a crappy supporting cast and was hacked and slashed by the Jets at will, but c'mon Superstar, it's triple OT and your season is on the line! Be the hero.

He was beyond exhausted at that point--Tippett was riding him, Draisaitl, Nurse, and Barrie like it was ten-cent night at the strip club.

Also, ain't like that was a defensive zone turnover, he turned it over in the attacking zone, and it was just then the defense picked the worst possible time to change. Also, Connor, who happened to not look good at that point during OT and by his own admission was exhausted and dogging it on the backcheck, was in prime cherry-picking position.

Lastly, I'm not about to say that Mike Smith was bad because he, apart from McDavid, was a huge reason behind the Oilers' success in the first place, but that was a very stoppable shot.

When the second line is Nugent-Hopkins, a rookie, and Zack friggin' Kassian, you don't just have a crappy supporting cast. You have NO supporting cast.

If they have the "Yzerman talk" as the local scribes there keep saying with McDavid, I hope he demands a trade right then and there and storms out.
