    Amazing how many former top prospects are on the Oilers yet they are still on the outside looking in.

    Legit question. Who will end their career with more IIHF world championships: Connor McDavid or Alexander Ovechkin? (Currently 3-1 in favor of Ovie)

    Ovie
    He is an icon, and will be good enough for another decade. McDavid will end up on a good team somewhere, and if not will not play. Wc tend to favor European teams top.

    One of the best parts of this clip is the guy on the right never moves. Everyone else is doing something, but he's just a man of stone.

    And with the Caps looking at a first round exit - Ovie should be added to the roster in a few days. ;)
