1 Cup

Many articles are coming out blasting the Oilers for more than just Chiarelli. Let's collect them here.

1) 'We're getting taken advantage of': Oilers season ticket holders fed up as team flounders

https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/edmonton/edmonton-oilers-seas on-ticket-holders-1.4990685

Quote:

It's time to stop disappointing Oilers fans, Allan said.

"Promising and not following through — we've just had enough of it," he said. "We've been hearing this for 12 years. We sell the building out every night. We buy the merchandise. We're loud fans and we're passionate. And that's getting taken advantage of."


2) Connor McDavid deserves so much better

https://www.cbc.ca/sports/the-buzzer/the-buzzer-oilers-chiar elli-mcdavid-1.4990191

Quote:

Firing Chiarelli won't magically solve the Oilers' problems. With the exception of their improbable, post-lockout run to the Stanley Cup final in 2006, the Oilers have won one playoff series in this century. That's despite having the No. 1 overall draft pick four times since 2010. Billionaire Daryl Katz bought the team in the summer of '08 and is already moving onto his fourth GM. Until that guy is found, some of the job will be handled by assistant GM Keith Gretzky (you know his brother). That's a sad reminder of Edmonton's long-gone glory days.


3) Rot in the Edmonton Oilers structure goes much deeper than the GM

https://edmontonjournal.com/sports/hockey/nhl/edmonton-oiler s/rot-in-the-edmonton-oilers-structure-goes-much-deeper-than -the-gm/wcm/3117d6df-1d7d-44b1-8b5d-d8c75079a58f

Quote:

After eight coaches and four general managers in the last 10 years, it’s obvious to everyone that the problems in this franchise runs much deeper than coach and GM. The rot in this structure is down to the foundation.

Can firing one person for the 10th time in 10 years really fix the problem? At what point are they just painting over rust?


4) Friedman 31 Thoughts

https://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/nhl/31-thoughts-whats-next-o ilers-chiarelli-firing/

Quote:

For Edmonton, this is more than just a GM search. This is an audit, an investigation into every pore of the Oiler way... Nicholson made one immediate change in philosophy: more AHL time is coming for younger players. But why stop at that? The timing allows him the opportunity to talk to a wide swath of people. Information is powerful currency. Interview lots. Ask about best practices. Find what else is out there. There is plenty to discover.


Hopefully more to come.




How could one doubt the braintrust of 6 Cups Kevin Lowe, MacT's E-MBA from Queens, Paul Coffey's skills coach resume, and drunk Gretzky?
