Couple thoughts on the Oilers upcoming season, and the lack of confidence in the management group and coaching staff.
I joined Rod Kurtz on CBC Radio Active to talk Oilers and their first home game in front of fans since March 2020. We talked about management’s off-season approach of adding veterans to the roster, where the strengths are in the roster and the weaknesses. We also talked about which youngsters the Oilers will need to emerge as regular options. And we discussed what we're watching for this upcoming season including the Oilers even-strength play without McDavid, as well as the penalty kill.
I joined Rod Kurtz on CBC Radio Active to talk about the Oilers and their free agency activities. We covered the signing of Zach Hyman, what he brings to the team and the risks associated with the contract. Discussed trading away Ethan Bear to make room for veteran defencemen, and what to expect from forward Warren Foegele. We talked about Tyson Barrie's actual impact to the team, and signing Cody Ceci, and if he can fill Adam Larsson’s role (short answer: nope). Also covered Evan Bouchard's role next year and the barriers in place. And we closed off with my thoughts on the outstanding roster issues and how the front office remains the Oilers biggest deficiency.
