Following their defeat against the Vegas Golden Knights in the playoffs, the Oilers' players were treated to an impressive speech from their captain, none other than the great Connor McDavid. Indeed, the NHL's best player seemed totally distraught at realizing that once again his team would not be able to win the Stanley Cup.

Edmonton Oilers' defenseman, Vincent Desharnais, was part of the lineup during the club's last playoff match and witnessed this pivotal moment. According to him, we can expect a historic season from McDavid and Draisaitl in 2023-2024, who are more motivated than ever to lay their hands on the precious trophy.

"The atmosphere in the room was crazy and nobody came in. No coaches, nothing. It was just the players and the doors were closed. Connor got up and he spoke... It's the first time I saw him like that, with so much emotion, so much frustration. And the first thing I thought of when he was talking like that, I swear, woah! Next year, people are not ready! I swear, he's going to break records again! I'm telling you right now, touch wood and he stays healthy, but I'm telling you, he's going to be MEAN! The coming season, him and Leon are going to be mean!" - Vincent Desharnais

Wow! That's promising!


Number 97 clearly deserves to win a Stanley Cup soon. After a season of 153 points, could McDavid beat his record next season? Since his arrival in the NHL, the forward has displayed simply phenomenal statistics. Indeed, the Oilers' captain has collected 303 goals and 547 assists (850 points) in 569 games, also adding 75 points in 49 playoff matches.
