McDavid or Draisaitl? Guy Boucher's answer will surprise you!

What makes it difficult to face the Edmonton Oilers is without a doubt the fact that they have a two-headed monster in their lineup, Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl. These are two extremely talented players who can hurt very badly offensively during a game. It is not for nothing that both players are very often at the top of the NHL scoring rankings for several years!

But if you had the choice to take only one, which one would you choose? According to Guy Boucher, the two players are extremely similar, but it would be Draisaitl he would choose to play a seventh game today. The reason is very simple, it is that the number 29 of the Oilers is much more complete than his teammate in several aspects like that at the level of the circle of the bets.

However, there is a clarification. The former coach of the Lightning and the Senators would make that choice to play a final game today. However, its choice would be totally different considering the long-term aspect. He mentioned that McDavid can improve many of the gaps in his game such as the defensive one over time.
