McDavid makes an ice cold comment on taking league lead in scoring

After another incredible three point effort today against the Anaheim Ducks, Oilers superstar Connor McDavid has taken the league lead in scoring for the first time this year.

When McDavid was asked about taking the lead in the scoring race, he completely dismissed the incredible accomplishment, alluding he's only interested in the Stanley Cup.


«We're playing for things bigger than that.»
-Connor McDavid on the scoring race



This is a display of pure leadership and maturity past caring about individual stats, and being solely focused on the success of the team. With McDavid leading the team to play their most complete game yet, with their deepest roster yet, the Oilers looks poised to make an actual run at the Stanley Cup.


The cold dismissal of the individual stats is something we've seen from McDavid all year, but after seeing this team crawl themselves out of a last place spot and back into the race for the division is truly insane. This team feels different this year, and in just a few weeks, they'll have to prove just that.

Against the Los Angeles Kings likely in the first round, the Oilers will need to play as a consistent full unit to beat their tight defensive checking system. As long as the Oilers maintain the mentality McDavid is leading with, they'll be unstoppable in the playoffs.
