Has there been an objectively worse offseason than the 2021-22 Edmonton Oilers? Asking for a friend.


Carolina is shaping up to have a terrible offseason as well.

Haha Oilers are going to be fun to score on this upcoming season with a super old goalie and poor defense overall

I think its just harder being a GM in Edmonton. No one wants to live there.. Hard to get guys to come without slightly overpaying.

They turned a top-9 forward into a top-4 defender. Can't be that bad.

For 1 year, it would be whatever. But 4 years of Ceci? Man.

I agree, but this is self inflicted.

They still had Ethan Bear like an hour ago...

Ceci is a good player but this looks like too much money.

This may be the worst signing of any contract of the day so far but the day is still young

Pretty much. I said in the Dillion trade thread that markets like Winnipeg and Edmonton are in tough when trying to compete for not just a playoff spot but trying to win rounds.

Anything over 700,000 for Cody Ceci is a massive overpayment.

People knocked Matheson and Petterson on the penguins.
But they carried Ceci to 4x3.25 last year.

So glad the penguins did not resign him. Especially at this.
This is a joke of a contract, and goes to show exactly how bad the defense market is right now.
People who think the market was fine, and that it would be hard to move defensemen at some point need to wake up.

Good for Ceci though, he took EDM for 13 million.

I see a lot of people complaining that the defense got worse ... and that may be true:

Klefbom
Larsson
Barrie
Nurse
Jones
Bear

Are likely much better than:

Lagesson
Russell
Barrie
Nurse
Keith
Ceci

But lets not ignore goaltending:

Ikko Oskinen
Lex Talock
Ike Mith

Are a significant upgrade over:

Mikko Koskinen
Alex Stalock
Mike Smith

So hold your head up Ken Holland.

And congrats on locking up Hyman!
We got him for the rest of his prime!

Plus 6 bonus years after of that.
