The oilers have missed the post season for eight years straight and macT is going to be very busy this summer if he doesn't want the same fate at the end of next season. So I am going to predict some of the trades and signings he is going to make this offseason and ask what I would like to see him do.
First of- draft Leon draisaitl he could slide right in to the 2c role next season. ( some might think I'm crazy for saying that)
Reason-the oilers desperately need size and strength up the middle and draisaitl could be and Instant impact to the lineup.
First trade- Gagner + 2015 1st to NSH for josi + 2014 3rd
With the drafting of draisaitl the oilers no longer need gagners services and will use him as a " bold move " with Nashville also helps oilers on the back end without tearing up their young core
Second trade- 2014 3rd+Martin Gernat for Kyle Clifford
This bulks up our bottom six with a player that was almost an oiler anyways
Third trade- cal clutterbuck for Taylor fedun
Signings- Matt niskanen ( 3.5/4 years)
Nikita Nikitin ( 2.5/2 years)
David moss. ( 2.125/2 years
Resignings- justin Schultz (4.5/ 6 years)
Jeff petry. ( 2.5/ 4 years)
Luke gazdic (950k/2 years)
Opening night roster 2014/15
T. Hall - R. Nugent. Hopkins - J. Eberle
D. Perron - L. Draisaitl - N. Yakupov
K. Clifford - B. Gordon - C. Clutterbuck
M. Hendricks - M. Arcobello - D. Moss
R. Josi - J. Schultz
J. Petry - M. Niskanen
A. Ference - M. Marincin
This roster looks a lot better than lasts and hopefully it actually happens depending on what happens with every other trades and signings.
Well, thanks for reading!!!!!!
