GDB 5.0: Home Opener (7pm MT, SN1)

Better late than never. Absence makes the heart grow fonder.

Oilers Finally Rolling Out Optimal Lineup

Oilers Finally Rolling Out Optimal Lineup

I’ll give Todd McLellan credit for listening to his players. They, led by Connor McDavid, were quite vocal about not wanting their lines split up and wanting consistency. There is certainly value in that. Consistency with the lines allows players to build chemistry and, in theory, play better. For the Oilers, that simply did not translate. Edmonton won in New York Saturday, but when McLellan changed the lines up after 40 minutes in Winnipeg on Tuesday it was clear he had to do something. For
