How to fill the last holes

Created by: GermanGretzky
Initial Creation Date: Jul. 28, 2021
Published: Jul. 28, 2021
Team: 2021-22 Edmonton Oilers
Team Explanation
The big holes now left are 3C and a goalie. I would love Cizikas in the Bottom 6, because together with two of Kassian/Foeggle/Archibald I could imagine this being a good Crash and Bang Line.

About the Goalie situation: I'm not sure what happens next, but EDM could either trade for Kuemper or Vanecek. The latter would be possible without trading Koskinen away, which could be cheaper in the end. You probably need to trade a 1st for Kuemper but Holland doesn't trade a 1st easily, so I can imagine the Oilers get outbid (The Avs need a goalie PRONTO for example).
Maybe the Oilers start the season and trade for a goalie at the Deadline, depending on how the goalie situation looks (could be not the worst strategy, given how unpredictable goalies can be).
What do you think?

In the end, even with the same goalie tandem, this is a much better team than a few hours ago!

Doubtful Oilers can outbid Colorado for Kuemper. Avs are serious contender with no starting goalie
