Oilers Teammates Fail to Stand up For Connor McDavid After Receiving a Cheap Blow

The Edmonton Oilers continue to lack a lot of fundamentals, one of those being physicality. The Edmonton Oilers current hit leader is Jesse Puljujarvi- that should say enough about the Edmonton Oilers' physical game. Teams in the playoffs tend to get walked over lots, but sadly for the Oilers, it's been happening in the regular season as well, with the greatest player in the entire world (Connor McDavid) in Edmonton, without a bodyguard.

If you ever watch a Chicago Blackhawks or Pittsburgh Penguins game, let me fill you in. If Patrick Kane ever gets touched in any way, Max Domi drops the gloves instantly, clean hit or not, he will not allow others to feel comfortable with hitting their superstar. As the Oilers shouldn't either with McDavid, but who is going to stand up for him..?

Last night was another instance where McDavid received an ''accidentally on purpose'' kind of hit, no penalty was called, and no discipline was given.
