While Oilers nation has been buzzing since news of McDavid’s inclusion in the club’s New Year’s Day practice hit social media, fans would be wise to keep their expectations in check when it comes to the rookie sensation. There is no question his return will instantly make this lineup better, but that does not necessarily mean it will translate into more wins for Todd McLellan’s crew. With that said, it will at least give them a puncher’s chance. Bringing McDavid back into the fold will add some much-needed scoring depth up front and potentially spark what has truly been an awful power play over the last number of weeks.

Not too shabby for a guy who many felt may be hitting a bit of a wall in what has truly been a wonderful career, despite dealing with severe concussion issues that likely cost him what would have been some of his most productive seasons. Going back in time and changing that is not an option, but Crosby still has plenty of gas left in the tank.
