The Edmonton Oilers will win the 2023 Stanley Cup.

Of course, this may not be the best news for the Edmonton Oilers, as evidenced by the absence of the Stanley Cup parade for the New York Islanders last June. So I contacted Edmonton General Manager Ken Holland to either congratulate him or warn him of the upcoming announcement.

Me: “Hi Ken. I’m going to pick you guys to win the Stanley Cup in our predictions. Please tell me I’m right.”

Ken Holland: “I really hope you’re right lol!!”

This is the spirit.

Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl are talented people of different generations who work in the same team. The pull of these stars will eventually win the Stanley Cup for the franchise. As it was with Gretzky and Messier, with Mario and Jagr, with Sakic and Forsberg, with Crosby and Malkin. So why not now?
