Josh Manson is a chip off the old block and one of the players bubbling under in the AHL this season. His recent recall to the Anaheim Ducks may be as a showcase for a deadline trade.

Can Craig MacTavish find a "Dubnyk in the rough" like Cliff Fletcher did for the Minnesota Wild? The Wild was 18-19-5 before Fletcher acquired Dubnyk, and they are 13-2-2 since the 14th overall pick in 2004 joined his fifth NHL organization in less than a calender year.
The Oilers need more than just a goalie standing on his head to turn the team around next season, but Dubnyk has shown how important having confidence in your goalie is to a team's success. Minnesota was sound defensively before Dubnyk arrived, they allowed the fewest shots per game, but their GAA was 24th. Dubnyk arrived, played solid and the Wild have taken off.
MacTavish's main priority during the off-season will be acquiring a goalie.

Craig MacTavish is an articulate man who has always been great in front of a TV camera. His brief stint on TSN as an analyst was educating and his scrums as a coach were always interesting, plus you could count on a great quote. It’s hurt him from time to time, though. Sometimes he gives away too much of what he thinks privately about players and that can hurt expectations and maybe even damage relationships. Perhaps he’s just too comfortable speaking in front of the camera for his own good, because sometimes he tips his hand and other times he can talk himself right into danger.
