The Edmonton Oilers started their Stanley Cup playoff journey on Monday night against the Los Angeles Kings. Despite their current success, things weren't always so positive for the Oilers. In the 2020 playoffs, they were swept in the first round by the Winnipeg Jets, and their star players Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl were held scoreless, leading some to call them overrated.

However, when the hockey world was criticizing the Oilers, Wayne Gretzky, the greatest Oiler of all time, had words of encouragement for McDavid, saying, "When you lift that Cup, it's pretty special, and you will lift that Cup one day because you're that good."

Since that playoff series, McDavid has continued to improve and this season he scored 64 goals and 89 assists. The author of the article is confident that McDavid will win not just one but multiple Stanley Cups before he retires.
