OILERS FAN THROWS AN ABSOLUTE TANTRUM AFTER THE NHL AWARDS DOESN'T MENTION HIS FAVOURITE PLAYER

JUN 23, 2022  (17H02)      LIAM
Yesterday, an Oilers fan decided to embarrass himself on a podcast and uploaded the clips to Twitter from his enraged rant about why Leon Draisaitl was not honoured at the NHL awards.

Watch below, but be warned, you will lose brain cells.


The fan screams about Draisaitl not getting recognition over Auston Matthews, who took home the Rocket Richard, Ted Lindsay, and Hart Trophy this year.

It was abundantly clear to everyone but delusional Oilers (and Habs) fans that Matthews was the best player in the league this year.

This delusional Oilers fan tries to show that Draisaitl was better than Matthews by pointing out that Draisaitl had more points, mostly from extremely valuable secondary power play assists, and ignores the fact that Matthews played seven less games. Even in those seven less games, Matthews scored five more goals, and scored at a much higher rate at even strength. That's not to mention his far superior analytics numbers that especially show a massive difference between a complete player in Matthews against a lazy power play merchant in Draisaitl.

So when this Oilers fan asks what the point of the NHL Awards is, it's easy to answer. It's to recognize the best players of that year in the league. This year, Draisaitl wasn't really in that discussion. Really, it's typical of a modern Oilers fan to demand respect while not winning anything, and this fan here is the exemplar of the loser mentality.

Draisaitl of course, is an amazing player, and his defensive metrics improved greatly this year (after being one of the worst in the league the years prior). He's even won a Hart and Rocket trophy prior! It's not unlikely that he'll win more awards again, but this year, Auston Matthews was the best player in the league in the regular season, and he deserved the recognition.
