    Why the awkward silence?

    I’ll get the ball rolling:

    Sean Monahan, with not much fanfare, just scored 31 goals this season, more than Taylor Hall’s career best. While being known as a big-bodied two-way centre.

    His left winger tied or beat every Oilers player in every major statistical category. And is a rookie.

    His other winger led the NHL in even-strength scoring.
