Coleman as a fit

Created by: oilsince95

Team: 2021-22 Edmonton Oilers
Team Explanation
I think Coleman would be a nice balance for McD and Pulju 5x5, just support really well with speed and some finishing ability and tenacious grinding. Also, if Holloway bursts on the scene, won't hurt to have Coleman on 3rd line, as his cap is likely not egregious with bigger names out there to be had (Saad, Tatar, Schwartz, Hall, Hyman etc.).

    Same. Oilers badly need a player like Coleman. Imagine him beside McDavid creating space out there for the best player in hockey.

    I'd say Hyman would do the same thing.

    Hyman indeed, and Saad also in the same vein as an option. Coleman I just think might come a little cheaper than those two I think, and his speed might suit McD's wing best. Hoping for one of the three for sure!

    No, but even more space sounds good lol.

    Well... one can always use more space. The thing I have noticed about Hyman at least (Coleman too probably but haven't seen him play enough) is that he has the ability to go into corners and come up with the puck.

    Pretty sure Matthews appreciates that more than people know.

    Would make sense. Just never know which players might like to hear a "hey, want a legit shot to play with Connor McDavid each night?". Useful selling point haha.
