Another one bites the dust:

https://www.tsn.ca/report-oilers-slepyshev-to-sign-in-khl-1. 1075128

I wanted to like him, but I would think there are a 100 other guys that can do his job as well or better.

There are 100 other guys that can replace him, the problem is the Oilers have shown a total inability to develop any of them. Except Jujhar.


Not to mention, an inability to correctly set expectations on players like this. They seemed to think he was magically going to take a huge leap forward last year, but that wasn't a good assumption. It seemed to put the player and team at odds, because they were somehow shocked he wasn't a first line scorer this year, when there was nothing in his past performance that said he would be.

I tell you, it's always Oilers math with this group. They look only at what they wish players would be, never on what they actually are and then use accordingly.

The Oilers believe in feels over reals. They run the Oilers like <redacted> is running Canada. Feels over reals.


McLellan definitely doesn't though. Wanted nothing to do with this guy.

Still find it nuts how he was ok with saddling McDavid with Lucic for 2 months, where Lucic manages I think 1 primary point (assist) over those 2 months being gifted McDavid 5v5 time and top PP time. But, he doesn't try Lucic-Drai-Slep that almost got him to the 3rd round even one game all year.
