Morning, folks!

I was late to the roundtable party last week so I posted my answers on the Twitter account:

Your mileage may vary, of course, and people are likely to be more charitable to Ken Holland than I am in terms of how bad it was when he got here, and how much he can be expected to fix something like that, but the results are the results. The Oilers are probably somewhere closer to average than good — as evidenced by their bottom-third metrics at 5v5 this season — and Connor McDavid turns 24 in January.

That has to be unacceptable. The Oilers have to figure it out immediately. They’ve only got 6 more seasons of control. Tick tock.

Where do you sit? Agree? Disagree? Agree to disagree?
