Connor McDavid had the best offensive season of his career with 44 goals, 79 assists and 123 points. This means the two-time Hart Trophy winner might be getting better and he is flanked by 50-50 guy Leon Draisaitl. So with the scoring accounted for, can the defense hold up? And what about goaltending? Can Edmonton trust Mikko Koskinen or will they need to turn to Mike Smith? If the Oilers can be strong in the defensive zone there’s a chance for the franchise’s first Stanley Cup since 1990.
