Team: 2020-21 Edmonton Oilers
Team Explanation
Hear me out.

Last year. RNH - Drais - Yama were spectacular and this team needs that energy.

Ennis and McDavid had good connection last season and Poolparty has size and speed. McD did also say pre-season that he was impressed with him. Plus Turris and he aren't clicking.

Neal slots in to get his feet wet, Shore and Archibald have been good so far.

Try Barrie up with Nurse. Cause why not. If this D-lineup doesn't work than bring in Bouchard and scratch whoever is ****ting the bed the most on the RD. Man are they missing Klefbom!!!!

Can they sign Howard? Is it too late? Has he already retired?
My big question...Is Edmonton were defense men go to die?

I don't mind those forward lines. Would love to see what Kahun can do with 97 over Ennis though, since there is a chance Kahun is in the Oilers future plans.

I honestly don't believe this is an overreaction, but Koekkoek has been the Oilers most consistent and arguably best d-man this season. At this point, I don't see a scenario where he isn't a regular in the lineup.

Honestly, I haven't seen much of Koekkoek so I will take your word. Also, I agree with Kahun...thought about it too. I just thought with Puljujarvi being a little novice having someone a bit seasoned and that McD knows makes more sense.

Forward lines I like. Defensive pairing I wanna see more Larsson and at the moment less jones and bear they got some work to do to get back in. I can’t see koekkoek getting taken out.

Ya. I thought more Larsson too, but having Jones and Bear together seemed a little risky. But maybe sit out Jones and have...

Nurse - Barrie
Russell - Larsson
Koekkoek - Bear
