Matthew Tkachuk was a bitter rival of the Oilers when he was on the Calgary Flames, and now he'll be facing off against against the team again in the Cup Final with Florida.

It's been a few years since Tkachuk regularly played against the Oilers, but he's clearly been keeping tabs on the team. Earlier today, Tkachuk broke down how the Oilers have changed in recent years.
»I think they defend better as a team, more than they get credit for. I think that everyone still thinks about McDavid and company with all out offence going run and gun, but that's not really what they're like. They obviously have that super high end offence, but I would say they're a more complete team now.»
- Matthew Tkachuk

Tkachuk noted that he hasn't matched up against Stuart Skinner often, suggesting he may be a question mark for the Oilers. Other than that, Tkachuk had incredible respect for the growth of this Oilers team all the way through their lineup, with their two way dominance.
If the Edmonton Oilers are going to win the Stanley Cup for the first time in the McDavid era, they'll have a seasoned opponent in the Florida Panthers. The Panthers have now made back-to-back finals, more motivated than ever to seal the job. The Oilers are going to need every player to play their best hockey in order to finish the job, and bring the Cup back to Edmonton.
