Eklund - Chiarelli out in Edmonton, what's next??? Buzzcast

Recent events prove the Oilers shouldn’t be buyers ahead of trade deadline

Recent events prove the Oilers shouldn’t be buyers ahead of trade deadline

In case you missed it, the Oilers fired Peter Chiarelli last night during (yes, DURING) the game between the Oilers and the Red Wings.

The Oilers (23-24-3) are in seventh place in the Pacific Division and dropped their third consecutive game Tuesday, a 3-2 loss to the Detroit Red Wings.

Chiarelli was hired by the Oilers in April of 2015.

And after almost 20 years of rushing young players before they're ready - organizational DNA that makes us insane - if it happens even one more time this reporter will be calling for Nicholson's head.

"Well, if there are guys that believe (we aren't talented enough), they should get out of the room", McDavid said. Keith Gretzky take over in the interim, they aren't looking for a new permanent general manager right away. On Monday, the team announced it had signed Mikko Koskinen, a goalie with 31 games' experience in the National Hockey League, to a three-deal worth US$13.5-million beginning next year.

He signed Milan Lucic to a $42 million, six-year contract that now appears to be unmovable. We have some really good staff.

"There is something in the water here we haven't got right", Nicholson said. "We believe in the organization, we believe in the dressing room that we can". He was heralded as the right executive to get the Oilers back to respectability.

But there is one move the Oilers have ruled out, which is to trade away first-round picks and young assets.

The Edmonton Oilers have been a laughing stock for a long time.

Nicholson said Hitchcock will remain coach for the rest of the season as Edmonton tries to close the gap and qualify for the postseason with 32 games left. The big winger has 96 points in 214 games with the Oilers, including just five goals this season. "You're killing Jesse Puljujarvi and Kailer Yamamoto by playing them in the National Hockey League". This week, he signed goaltender Mikko Koskinen to a three-year contract extension worth $4.5 million a season.

Does a deeper cleanse of the Old Boys Club need to occur, or should the next GM be allowed to hire or retain whomever he sees fit, regardless of where they played their hockey a couple of decades ago? "We have the best player in the world and other good pieces". "It was really felt that because of the way we were trending we had to make a change".
