Compete in 2019 Contend in 2020

Created by: Ryryguy4

Team: 2019-20 Edmonton Oilers
Team Explanation
Plan is to shed whatever money we can this year and burn off the remaining years on a number of contracts. Team would compete this year and have enough money next year to resign nurse if they so choose, and chase a free agent. Goalie remains the issue but that again can be addressed next year.

Lucic deal piggybacks one that johnathan willis had in his athletic article. I'd be willing to add bear to the lucic deal as well.

in case it wasn't clear. the point is to be more competitive in 2019 and burn off a bunch of dead weight contracts. As constructed there is also much more flexibility to make changes and/or sign free agents in 2020.

No clue my guy. But probably before the Oilers will... Mcdiddly, Drat and Talbot carried you guys to a series win 2 years ago, now with no goaltending, doubt Mcdavid and Drat can do it alone.

Tavares + Marner + Nylander + Matthews + Kadri + Kapanen + Johnsson + Rielly + Gardner + Muzzin + Anderson = Bruins in the 2019 Stanley Cup Final.

Seems to me Toronto is no closer to a series win than Edmonton is.

Well they are, you have to get in the playoffs before you can even try win a series... Oilers missed the payoffs by quite a lot last season if I do remember correctly? and to be knocked out of the playoffs by the team in the cup finals is hardly saddening. especially when the Leafs were the only team to even come close to beating the Bruins. So we lost to be the best team in the east, not worried.

Simpleton seems to be a good description lol. That's like saying seems to me the Bruins are no closer to winning the cup than Tampa is. Like no, your logic stinks.

Why can’t Leafs and Oilers fans ever have civil discussion. Always becomes a pissing contest.

Because both fan bases are typically delusional and both think their teams are way better than they are, and each sides stupidity frustrates the other.

You've completely missed the point. Simpleton indeed.
