Want an NHL team that's hyped to the moon like the Dallas Cowboys? A team that has so much talent, yet they ALWAYS fall short in the postseason? What about that same team being beloved by the heads at ESPN and CBC?

Look no further than the Edmonton Oilers! They're a popular Stanley Cup Champion pick because of Connor McDavid and his penchant to do it all! But when it comes to the postseason pressure, the Oilers fold like a house of cards.

Now, Edmonton is currently on a 12-game winning streak and has McDavid and Leon Draisaitl. Therefore, they know more about winning than the Cowboys. However, if the Oilers are prematurely eliminated from the playoffs, the noise will grow louder. Plus, all Edmonton fans will have are the glory days of Gretzky, similar to what Cowboy fans have with their 90's teams.
