*Buzzsaw* Posted October 18, 2019 Share Posted October 18, 2019 Everyone's talking about the Oilers as if this current win streak is sustainable... it ain't. Just like last year, all the goals and points are coming from McDavid and Draisaitl's line. After Neal, and a bit of Kassian, there is no production. The reason the Coil are doing so well is their two big guns are playing lights out... but it is not sustainable. On his current pace, McDavid will score 199 pts in the year... and that isn't the reality in today's NHL. That's ultimate Gretzky in the days of Messier/Kurri/Coffey... and tiny Goalies with tiny pads. So my prediction is the Coil will come crashing back down to earth. On the other hand, when you look at the Colorado scoring, it is sustainable. Yes, you have the AV's big boys piling up the points.... but their percentage of team scoring is nothing like McDavid... the rest of the team is chipping in their share. I can easily see the Avalanche winning their division... they showed they were ready in last year's playoffs, and I think they want to continue that trend. So to all you guys in the 'Chuck... sorry, but your season start is not going to last. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
