Even then, the Oilers will most likely not have the opportunity to play the UFA market for another two years. They have over $71 m tied up in 16 players for the 2020–21 season and won't have enough money to spend on high end players to begin with.

On a semi-related note think about this: Since the Oilers traded for Sam Gagner he has been their #4 highest scoring forward. Sam Gagner was deemed so expendable by the Vancouver Canucks that he was loaned to an AHL team, and he is one of the Oilers top forwards.

Edmonton is no good.

Yup. Top fwds for Edmonton include a guy who couldn't play for his team's AHL affiliate and was loaned elsewhere and a guy who came in on a PTO, was on a PTO contract with a different team the year before, and on an $800K contract with the Flames the year before that.

Keith Gretzky will run the June 21-22 NHL Entry Draft for the Edmonton Oilers.

“We’re going forward with the idea Keith will oversee the draft as he essentially has done anyway the last two years with Bob Green and the amateur scouting staff,” Oilers Entertainment Group vice chairman Bob Nicholson informed me prior to the team heading out on a three-game road trip to Phoenix, Las Vegas and St. Louis.

“Our process of identifying and interviewing candidates for the vacant positions of President of Hockey Operations and General Manager is going to continue to be exhaustive and we might not have the opportunity to talk to all the potential candidates until well into the playoffs or perhaps even until they are over.

“We’d like to have the GM in place before the draft, but we are comfortable with Keith continuing in his current role to fill that transition period.”

^So...

“There’s something in the water that we gotta figure out”

BUT!

“We’re gonna just let the guy who has overseen the last couple of drafts oversee this one, because those were fine! ...and then maybe find a new GM afterward”

Math adds up. E = NG

So the Oilers officially can't catch the Flames if they win the rest of their games and the Flames lose the rest of theirs.

Penner, Souray, Whitney, Comrie, Purcell et al. Might be a few more.

Every player who’s played for the Oilers on that podcast has pretty much thrown the whole organisation under the bus - some really explicitly and in detail. It’s not like they’re run of the mill grinders either, all top 6F/top 4D players, who has nothing good to say about the organisation.

It’s a comedy show, but it’s also detrimental to the game. Still, the salty tears are soooooo tasty....

Are you insinuating that there are rearview mirrors in dire need of dusting?

Yes, dust off the mirrors and keep an eye out for blue flags, because we’re coming up to lap them
