McDavid Flashes More Magic Moves
Surely, the Oil have turned the proverbial corner.
With last spring's first overall draft pick already with the big club and delivering the goods, it'd be hard to assume otherwise.

By March, that level will likely be a wistful memory, but with McDavid's contributions sparking the potential in the other three first overalls on the club, it's doubtful Oiler fans will be tossing any sweaters on the ice in disgust this season.
