Four years ago the Oilers were a wreck but had some solid building blocks and brought in Stanley Cup winning GM peter Chiarelli to fix things and he brought in a wrecking ball, lets take a look at his moves and see what the results have been. They beg the question where would the Oilers be if they had refused to tinker and had just stood still or at least taken a conservative approach.
They were awful, GOD AWFUL in 2014-15, lets be honest. No defense, apathy among certain players,
Nice write-up yave...as usual.
Interesting read..and a sorry case of what a GM can do to screw up something. I'm sure that Chia had more help than himself in destroying what could have been there. There's an old boys club that needs to be purged in Edmonton before that team can ever compete...and before they waste the best player in hockeys' entire career.
And I pray Fletcher takes heed.
