The most exciting prospect since....well probably Taylor Hall, Ryan N-H, or Sidney Crosby if the press is to be believed but those clichés aside, has there been more pressure on any other rookie than Connor? The weight of expectation is simply enormous....signing an endorsement deal with Adidas may have taken a bit of the sting away but wow. This is the most intense I've seen for a signing. As the Edmonton Oilers get their 4 billionth first round draft pick because they continue to be rubbish (even with first round draft pics everywhere) and as expected Connor was snapped up and even said it was an honour to be going to Edmonton with a straight face. Well tonight the Oilers prospects took on the canucks prospects. It seemed a bit of a reality stretch to see Connor line up in the prospects team but how did he go? Surviving an early game ka-thumping he seemed contained enough scoring "just" one goal and one assist. However he got the first star and so has made a good start to his oilers stint. the result? Oilers 8 def Canucks 2 (ouch!) Thanks to @Dan for the nhl thread! awesome. Hopefully wolfpack gets reincarnated and joins the convos as well.
