The Edmonton Oilers have a dynamic team, based on the scoring depth alone with the top-six forwards they possess. Connor McDavid is the best player in the world and the next-best point scorer in the league in Leon Draisaitl.
Zach Hyman and Evander Kane are those depth players the Oilers team successfully managed to acquire and utilize to their ability, with Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Connor Brown being the leaders in the locker room that shall provide scoring that will complement the point-recording ability of the Edmonton Oilers team.
With this combination of forwards, I look at how the gameplay will be executed by coach Jay Woodcroft and the expectations of the organization, along with its fans.
