Holland says the time is now for the OIlers to be contenders

https://www.sportsnet.ca/nhl/article/holland-believes-time-n ow-oilers-evolve-contenders/

Congrats fans, you made it to the finish line! Or at least the starting line! Possibly the dressing room. Still, at least we're in the building! Maybe.

Sorry 2020-21 Oilers. it just wasn't your time.



You can't always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you just might find, you can get a lottery pick.

No Cups

Off-season moves indicate otherwise.

Never change Mark Spector

You can say that Holland’s Oilers have only won one playoff game in two post-seasons under the GM, and he’ll agree. It’s part of the process, losing.

The scary part is I think the Oilers believe this too: you've got to lose first to learn how to win.

What a typical abomination of an article. They've since changed it to, "obscure player", but this was the original copy in the article:

Does no one at Sportsnet read stuff before it gets published?

And maybe even more telling is the players he chose to list as not being contributers in this paragraph:

Quote:

When McDavid and Leon Draisaitl sit down at the second intermission trailing 3-2, and the people they see across the room have names like Gaetan Haas, Dominik Kahun, Joakim Nygard and Caleb Jones, they know that the comeback is on their backs. It’s been that way in Edmonton: If No. 29 and 97 don’t win the game for you, it doesn’t get won.


Weird that guys like Kassian, Chiasson, Neal all get a pass from Spector, especially given they all make significantly more than the group that Spector did decide to call out. Don't ever let the media convince you that it's fans fault that players don't want to play in Edmonton, when they're more than happy to shiv guys in the back on their way out.

Well, if they are counting on Neal to bail them out there is really a problem...

Fair point on the other two though
