Is Ken Holland done for the summer?

It’s the quietest part of the summer, which was exactly what I was saying last week before the Oilers made their big splash, but moves at this point of the offseason are few and far between. The Neal for Lucic swapped really got Oilersnation amped up for next season and has a lot of fans…
