Edmonton Oilers Season Preview

Created by: vic997
Initial Creation Date: Aug 26, 2019
Published: Aug 26, 2019 at 1:05 pm
Team: 2019-20 Edmonton Oilers
Team Explanation
It still doesn't look promising for the Edmonton Oilers.
McDavid and Drai still run this team with some help from RNH.
The bottom six scoring needs to be present this year for the Oilers to even make a dent in the standings.

Edmonton shipped off Lucic for Neal this offseason. The change of scenary could do some good but if Neal can't regain his scoring capacity, the swap is a wash.

What to do with Pool Party? Sign him? Trade him?
I have no idea what they're going to do but hypothetically let's say they do reach an agreement to a contract and he plays 2-3rd line all year.

Bouchard: I think there's a good chance he makes the team this year. I wouldn't even be surprised if we see him playing top-four minutes this year. He's talented and can probably imrpove this team right away.

Smith: as a backup he's fine, but Edmonton is relying heavily on Koskinen after the extension he signed last year.

Hot take: Smith takes over as (a mediocre) 1A and Koskinen's contract ends up making the Oilers look silly, again.

Honestly, that is worst case scenario for the Oilers.
I really hope Koskinen plays well because Smith is horrendous at times

This is assuming they come to an agreement but yeah I agree, I think he'll be traded before the season starts
