CBC Radio Active: Re-cap of the Oilers season

I joined Rod Kurtz on CBC Radio Active in Edmonton to talk about the Oilers series against the Avalanche and where they stuggled. We talked about the impact Jay Woodcroft and Dave Manson have had since being hired and how they were able to find so much success. And we talked about the top priorities this summer, including integrating analytics into their decision-making process and better managing the cap to ensure long-term success.

The Bar Has Been Set

The third round wasn’t kind to the Oilers, but they were closer than the scoreboard suggested. They’ve got to turn a net-positive season into a positive offseason.

Joined by Romulus’ Apotheosis (@RomulusNotNuma) on the show to discuss the Edmonton Oilers playoff run, what the key drivers have been (aside from McDavid), and what the weak spots are. We also talked about the impact this playoff run will have on the Oiler’s decision-making process in the off-season, especially with some key RFA players like McLeod, Puljujärvi and Yamamoto needing contracts. And we discussed why the Oilers should be changing their overall approach in constructing a roster and managing the cap, and being cautious with signing Kane to a long-term deal.
