from Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal at the Edmonton Sun, As the folks from the BarDown website point out, Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl have more points (43) than the entire Anaheim roster (41) which speaks to the brilliance of the Edmonton Oilers supernovas and the California club’s popgun offence.
