Another Oilers-less Wednesday is upon us, which meant that it was time for your boy to jump on the radio with the fellas from The Locker Room to discuss all things Edmonton Oilers. This week, we used the time to try and figure out what went wrong.
After only seven days and a whole lot of wasted hope, the Oilers got bounced from the playoffs in the qualifying rounds and, to be honest, it was hard to truly express my frustration with how we got to this point. That said, we tried our best to figure out what exactly went wrong and what changes may possibly need to occur before the start of next season. With that in mind, we walked through some of the latest rumours and “ideas” that have been put out on social media over the past few days and tried to decide if any of them could have some legs. Regardless of what we think, the only thing that’s clear at this point is that Ken Holland will have his work cut out for him as he looks to improve the roster without having barely any space at all under the cap. Can it be done? Time will tell.
