The Edmonton Oilers fell just one game short of winning the Stanley Cup in 2024. After the loss, superstar Leon Draisaitl fought back tears in an emotional interview.

While they didn't win the Stanley Cup, the Edmonton Oilers captivated the hockey world with their 2024 run. They will undoubtedly aim for the same goal next season, led by their two superstars. After the heartbreaking Game 7 loss, Leon Draisaitl shared how much this team means to his captain, Connor McDavid, in a heartfelt interview.
«He's the greatest player to ever play in my books. So many things that a lot of people don't see that he does. He single handedly turned our franchise around.»

«Just love, love sharing the ice with him. He's just a really, really special person.»

This shows the genuine love and passion in the Oilers locker room. After coming so close to their dream, Draisaitl spoke about how much McDavid wants to lift the Cup.
«It speaks to how amazing of a hockey player he is, but there's no player in the world that wants to win a Stanley Cup more than him. (He) does everything right every single day just to win it one day. It's really hard, especially him (McDavid) being sad.»

With their two stars leading the way, the Oilers have a chance to come back strong in 2025. However, with Draisaitl's free agency looming next summer and McDavid's the year after, if they can't reach their goal, we could see major changes in the organization.
