Oilers sign Josh Archibald.

No one can save the Oilers.

WOOF. That's another top 5 draft pick if I've ever seen one.

The McDavid sad face works everywhere. When he was drafted. When he was near molested by Katz, now when he looks at the upcoming lineup

I love how the solution for the Oilers is literally prayers and hopes that signings of 10 goal scoring fringe players like Archibald and Grunlund and having them become Chiassons instead of Rieders are the source of your season's success.

McDavid will have to ask for a trade if they crash and burn again this season won't he?

It's likely that it will be the third straight season where he puts up 40+ goals, 100+ points, and the team is going to be out of the playoff picture by February.

Instead of potentially winning his 4th straight Hart Trophy, he's likely to be on the outside of the playoffs looking in again and not winning the trophy due to that.

Considering he likely only has a 10-15 year window where he's considered among the "best players in the game" he's already going to be at the point where he's wasted a third to half of that window.

I'm not sure anybody would even really blame him if he asked for a trade at that point.

He should have thought about that before signing for 8 years. It's not like it was a secret that E=NG. Nope, he can sleep in that bed.

^ I didn't get signing for 8 years at all. He's not even going to be the highest paid player in the league in the next year or so

I am certain that in Summer 2017 McDavid was convinced that the Oilers were well on their way to a championship. It goes to show that players are no better at projecting the future in hockey than fans are. It also goes to show that McHobo is no good.

Ha, ha, McHobo!

So Edmonton has one more contract to give and only $2,933,001 left in cap space (with 1.75 million in possible bonuses to maybe fit in under that) - that's terrible for the product they plan to ice next season.

Archibald had over ten goals last season. No doubt he is going to be given every opportunity on McDavid's wing lol.
