Connor McDavid not a leader? Personality deficient? James Neal begs to differ

This in from Edmonton Oilers forward James Neal, his thoughts from the playoff bubble in the Players Tribune, where he talks about the championship leadership quality of Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl. Neal starts out by relating a story about how McDavid as a 16-year-old held back from going full speed as he practiced with NHLers because he didn’t want to show them up. “Even as a junior, he was already the best player o

Any Questions?

Any Questions?

I’ve met a lot of players over the years who talk a great game. They enjoy the microphone, the scrum, the attention. That’s where they shine. There’s nothing wrong with that. Win or lose, they are the go-to guys for those toting notepads and cameras and looking for a juicy quote. I miss Janne Niinimaa. Gold. Then, there are those guys who play a great game but would much rather let their actions on the ice speak for them. That’s where they shine. Getting anything any good out of them i

Baggedmilk on #theLOCKERROOM: McDavid’s personality, overestimating the Blackhawks, and 50/50 love

The NHL qualifying rounds are in full swing, which meant there was a lot to talk about with the fellas from The Locker Room when I jumped on the air to discuss all things Edmonton Oilers. This week, we previewed tonight’s game against the Blackhawks, looked at those who question McDavid’s personality, and a lot more. To kick off today’s appearance, we got things start with an awkward question from Lochlin, specifically what kind of underwear I go with. As a man with impeccable taste, ther

Oilers’ James Neal: McDavid, Draisaitl ‘on another planet’

Oilers’ James Neal: McDavid, Draisaitl ‘on another planet’

For two straight summers, James Neal had to watch from a distance as opponents took turns celebrating their days with the Stanley Cup. In 2016-17, he was part of the Nashville Predators squad challenging to dethrone the defending champions before losing in six games to Sidney Crosby & Co. One year later, the winger had a shot at redemption as part of the expansion Vegas Golden Knights, but lost again — this time to the Washington Capitals in five. “I didn’t really realize it until l

Dave Tippett Looking For Consistency "Within The Game"

Dave Tippett Looking For Consistency

The Edmonton Oilers, regardless of their second-place finish in the Pacific Division, are still searching for consistency. The Oilers ran hot-and-cold for most of the 2019-20 season, and didn’t really settle into a lengthy groove at any point. Inconsistency has been the story of their best-of-five series against the Chicago Blackhawks to this point as well. The Oilers completely no-showed Game 1, falling 6-4 on Saturday. They controlled Game 2, winning 6-3 on Monday night. Head coach Dave Tip

Stanley Cup Playoffs 2020: Oilers vs. Chicago Game 3

A five-game series is like having a job evaluation every day for a week. Even if you do well Tuesday, there’s another big test tomorrow. Imagine a batter versus a pitcher. The count is 1-1. Strike two gives enormous advantage to the pitcher, 2-1 is a hitter’s count. That’s tonight for the Oilers and the ‘Hawks. This is fun, right? RIGHT? THE ATHLETIC! Great perspective from a ridiculous group of writers and analysts. I am proud to be part of The Athletic. Here are the most r
