'I Don't Feel Bad For You': Leon Draisaitl Playfully Roasts Local Media

EDMONTON -- One more win.

That's all the Edmonton Oilers need to secure the franchise's sixth Stanley Cup.

In Game six, the Oilers took the Florida Panthers to the woodshed. They received contributions from up and down the lineup in a true team victory.

Warren Foegele continued his point streak by opening the scoring. Adam Henrique netted the goal that would stand as the game winner. Zach Hyman scored his 16th goal of the playoffs. Ryan McLeod and Darnell Nurse would bury an empty net goal each to put the nail in the coffin for the Panthers.

Leon Draisaitl dished an incredible saucer pass to Foegele for his goal. Whatever Kris Knoblauch's reasoning was for changing the lines, it paid off.

After the game, Draisaitl spoke to the media on the podium along with Stuart Skinner. What followed was one of the most entertaining interactions recorded between a player and journalist this year.

Mark Spector began asking a question, "you should know these commercial flights are killing us old guys." He pauses and then Draisaitl interjects a simple, "I don't feel bad for you."

Spector laughs at Draisaitl's quick wit, and Draisaitl smiles back. Although Draisaitl may have a history of being "pissy," he certainly wasn't during this media scrum.

Earlier this year, Draisaitl had a heated moment with a local reporter that resulted in the now famous line, "what do you want me to say to him?"

Draisaitl has come a long way since this moment. He's shown an ability to publicly take responsibility for his miscues.

Of course things are a lot different when your team is on the verge of winning the Stanley Cup.
