**The third post in an ongoing series - Robin Brownlee re-lives the 2002-03 Oilers season ** 

In an era when the Oilers were either just in or just out of the Western Conference playoffs, the 2002-03 season started badly and ended worse. In between, it was a campaign that would see the Oilers just in again with 92 points, a gaudy 13 points ahead of the ninth-place Chicago Blackhawks.

Over the past week I locked the Nation writers in a room to battle and argue over who would make the all time Oilers roster. What is an all time roster?

Is it the start of the season yet? No, it isn't. In fact, it isn't even close. We still have over two months to go until the puck drops on the 2015-16 NHL season, meaning there's a lot of time for teams to make moves, and there's a lot of time to sit around and think about who's had a good offseason and who hasn't. Pretty much all of the interesting free agents are off the table now that we're heading into August, but there's still a lot of time for teams to make moves and tweak their rosters. 

With that being said, after the jump I'm going to break down the good and the bad of the offseason in the Central Division (so far) and who might still be looking to make some more moves before the season starts.
