"Keep the opinions sane and well thought out."
Canada, AB • Canada •
So bitter.

Yes, it sucks that Edmonton won the draft lottery, outside of Edmonton they are reviled as a worthless loser of an organization and yet get the main prize of this generation. Or do they?

They get to draft Conner McDavid but that doesn’t guarantee a that McDavid plays a game for the Oilers. On TV the analysts looked downtrodden, the other G.M.’s rolled their eyes and fans across North America just said, “This is Bulls*&t” when Edmonton won. Even McDavid looked very down about the whole thing, certainly wasn't beaming with sunshine.

If Conner Mcdavid wants to go from being a wildly talented player to wildly talented player revered as a hockey god by the entire hockey world outside of the concrete snow dungeon known as Edmonton, he will follow this simple plan to “Lindros” the oilers without coming off in a negative light as Lindros did when he snubbed the Nordiques. We'll term it McJesusing the Oilers instead.

1. Get drafted by the Oilers and be humble about it. Say and do all the right things about the city and the team.
2. Have agent “look at all of his options” I.E. “ We’re looking at all of clients options on his entry level deal, he’s unique and should be treated as such”
3. Agent very publically lets it be known he is advising his client, (his very humble and sweet kid of a client) that he (the selfish and horrible agent) is wondering about Oiler compensation from the NHL should he not sign his ELC as part of a bargaining chip. (Yes everyone knows he’ll get max salary but what about all the private limos, estate rooms on the road, ice time issues etc?)
4. Let time slip away on ELC while privately telling Oilers he’s not going to sign there.
5. Leak it to the media to get the buzz and pressure on to trade his rights.
6. Stick to it. Agent tells media that he feels his client would be better served going back to the draft and taking his chances with an organization that values him more. (it’s all BS, everyone will know but it won’t be coming from McDavid, he’ll come off clean as a whistle). Hey, his client just wants to play for Canada at the Juniors, it's his dream as a hockey Patriot.
7. Edmonton either trades his rights for a massive haul to another team or lets him go for compensation from the NHL.
8. McDavid’s real reason for not signing in Edmonton gets “leaked” to the media via his agent that he didn’t want to go to such a dysfunctional organization, that he heard bad things about the city.
9. McDavid becomes the hero of the hockey world, everyone agrees with him and balance is restored

The compensation from The NHL is stated as follows:

8.3 Compensatory Draft Selections. (a) In addition to the seven (7) rounds of the Entry Draft, there shall be an additional number of Compensatory Draft Selections not to exceed the number of Clubs to be in the League in the following League Year. (b) In the event a Club loses its draft rights to an Unsigned Draft Choice drafted in the first round of the Entry Draft (except as a result of failing to tender a required Bona Fide Offer (as defined below)), who (i) is again eligible for the Entry Draft, (ii) becomes an Unrestricted Free Agent, or (iii) dies, a Compensatory Draft Selection shall automatically be granted to that Club, which Compensatory Draft Selection shall be the same numerical choice in the second round in the Entry Draft immediately following the date the Club loses such rights. By way of example, if a Club cannot sign the third pick in the first round, it will receive the third pick in the second round as compensation.

What this means is McDavid holds the cards, if they’re played right he has the power of a UFA almost to say trade me, even pick a destination, or lose me for the 31st pick overall in 2016.

The NHL would not dispute this, they hate that he’ll be playing in some frozen arctic corner of Canada and not in say, Arizona or Toronto, where U.S. Media would see him all the time.

Maybe, just maybe, he lives up to his moniker as McJesus and answers the Leagues prayers.


P.S. Pat Steinberg didn’t help me find the compensation information but I still love him anyway.

If im connor I pull a lindros. And I wouldnt care how I looked thru the media. Good players go to Edmonton to die. Just ask devan dubnyk and David perron how life can be outside of Edmonton. Me personally I dont care one bit he plays for edmonton just means hewont face the habs 5 times a year. But seriously how many times does a team need to draft 1st overall to turn its luck before the league steps in. I say if your team has drafted in the top 5 for 3 consecutive years you automatically get pushed out of the top5. It will force teams to start looking at there scouting and development systems harder

Well all this complete bullshit is useless and classic for such a piece of shit blogger and human being in general. The thought that you put so much effort into being a sour shithead is beyond me.

Connor, his agent, his dad and his coach in Erie have all said that he would be honoured to play for Edmonton so go fuck yourself and grow the fuck up you useless fucktard.

Your location reads "keep the opinions sane, and well though out". Perhaps you should have taken your own advice before you wasted time writing this garbage filled with conjecture and blatant insults towards a city. Karma got McDavid drafted to Edmonton just to spite all the fuckers like you out there. Have fun watching him light the league up in Oilers colors. Bahahahahahahahahaha

Bast- give your head a shake- Dubnyk took how many years and teams to finally get it... His balls were in the vise- either put out or get out of the NHL- thats how close he was... as for Perron that little whiner- what has he done exactly with the Penguins of late- I say depending on what we do with that pick #16 we could have very well won that trade as it was a team improvement just not having Perron on the roster this year!

Wow. Living a fairy tail. You should really consider changing your name on here because there is nothing sane or well thought out in this. Crazy.

This is pointless long-term anyways. Everybody knows Mcdavid is signing in Toronto as soon as he becomes a ufa.Just like Stamkos and tavares will before him and Getzlaf and perry did before them.

I love how oiler fans come and say jealously and all this load of crap. But the simple fact is, you should be awarded the 1st pick 4 out of 6 years. And it was painfully obviously, and awkward for anyone who saw McDavid do his interview after the Oilers won the Lottery.

I figured I would pop back on again for another "fuck you!" This time I get to add in a "Go fuck yourself ImNoTroll" and that other Nucks dumbass too.

So McDavids agent was on with Stauffer today on the radio. Hate to break it to you but there is no chance of anything you wrote happening. So find something else to whine about.Better yet just take that sheet off your bed in the institution and put it to good use...

McDavid loves the Oilers fans, but hates the franchise. http://slam.canoe.com/Slam/Hockey/NHL/2015/04/19/22353211.html

Stay Classy EDM! fans of 29 other teams know that this was a damn shame for the nhl. You apparently know otherwise... just like how as a pens fan I know Crosby doesnt whine one bit and just does his job as a captain. Just like how Leafs fans think there players are all worth more than they are in the trade market. Its amazing how those homer glasses can make fans blind to the facts. This was a funny, tongue in cheek post. Chill out and stop acting like tough guys while sitting at a keyboard.

McDavid is going to be an Oiler for a long time. Anywhere between 6-8 years.
