<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>JKCpp</b></div><div>Draisaitl had selke votes in 2018-2019 and 2019-2020 but ok also check the numbers after ekholm arrived and u will be surprised</div></div>

Thank you for bringing that up! Yes he's received a grand total of 4 total Selke votes in his 9 seasons in the league. The highest he ever placed was 13th, when he got 2 2nd place votes and a 4th place vote, in 2021. Of course worth noting is the 2 2nd place votes were both from members of Edmonton media who cover the Oilers. He also received 1 5th place Selke vote in 2020, the year he was statistically one of (if not the) worst forwards in the entire league. So yeah, he's not really raking 'em in.

The basic numbers tell that yes, they allowed fewer goals per game post Ekholm trade... but going deeper into that, in the 21 games following, they played mostly interdivisional and interconference games, which led to them playing cupcakes, like the Ducks twice, the Coyotes twice, and the Sharks three times. That's 1/3rd of the games right there against teams who knew going into the year they had no shot. They did have some good wins in that span though, to their credit.

However, the playoffs...woof. 12 games, and only 3 of them did they allow fewer than 3 goals. In 7 games, they allowed 4 or more! A part of that goes to shaky goaltending, I'm sure, but then how do you not structure your defensive system around limiting shots at that point? Can't blame the goalie every year...
