    I have been thinking about this since Booby Nick announced Chia will return next season, but what outcome would you want to see next season?

    Oilers making the playoffs, thus Chia stays on as GM

    OR

    Oilers miss the playoffs and Chia is fired.

    Odd dichotomy to make. My issue isn't centered on making playoffs so much as how the roster is constructed next year. If Connor drags us to the playoffs but our roster looks even worse, I still want him fired. If he makes a killer trade for say OEL, but we just barely miss the playoffs because it's a deadline deal, I'd probably be okay with keeping him.

    Obviously I want the team to do as well as possible but I don't think Chia is the right guy to turn us into contenders. It kind of depends on what he does this offseason though. If he can land a Karlsson or OEL I will have time for him.

    I'll take option C. Oilers make the playoffs but Chia chokes on a hotdog and dies before the trade deadline. :jk: I'll take option "A" as I'm not a narcissist who puts my ego ahead of team success.

    Not sure why it's an odd choice. Chia keeps his job if they make the playoffs and loses his job if they miss. That will be the deciding factor.

    Make the playoffs and Chiarelli steps down as GM.

    Why would I not want the team to win? Do people want Chia fired that badly that they want the team to suck to make it so?

    sorry

    I have to reject the premise of this thread--oilers have done no roster moves partly because they can not really do any NHL moves until after the cup is won

    if we walk in with the SAME roster--no one can have much hope

    but there will be changes

    gone are
    Slepyshev
    Pak
    and the French defender I hated from the word go

    IN
    The Fin

    we have no clue how the roster will look on october 1st

    once the draft roles around and we decided which RFAS we want--we will get a better idea

    I’m surprised all options aren’t “Fire Chia”.

    So you think we'll step back? There's a terrifying thought.

    I am being a bit tongue in cheek, but I wouldn't be surprised with "the changes being made" to be honest.

    My prediction is no matter what happens, some posters will complain about it.

    I'll bet my life savings he's gone if they miss. You can't waste a generational talents prime years with failure. It's criminal. That said, a nightmare scenario would me getting beat in the first two rounds, management thinks all is well....and both are back.

    That's a pretty damned safe prognostication.

    This is the proper answer. The playoffs and not 100% correlated with Chia's success/failure, let alone proving causation. It is largely correlated for sure, no doubt, but both of these points indicate valid corner cases where this is not applicable.

    Our roster is no where near as bad as people make out. Worse teams on paper made the playoffs this year.

    Currently have one of the best groups of centers in the nhl which includes the best player in the world...

    Need to have some development or bargain bin acquisitions pay off and we could go from outside the playoffs to cup contender quickly. Just the way the league works now.

    With minor changes we will make the playoffs if our goaltending is reliable. I think we'll see a decline from Vegas and Anaheim plus improvements by Calgary and Arizona. I think the top 3 in our Division will be a combination of us, Calgary, Vegas, San Jose and LA.

    I don't get why someone would want us to miss the playoffs just to see PC fired.

    Short term pain for long term gain? Almost every contract he’s given out is one that will damage this team for a lengthy period. We will be dealing with some big headaches for 4-5+ years because of him. I can’t stand another losing year( with the added pain that resale value is worse now than the decade of darkness) but he’s doing such long term damage that I’m terrified about him doing more, so I can see why someone would take that option.

    Sorry, but did I just read you want Chiarelli gone in hope that it increase the resale value of your tickets long term.

    :sarcasm:The other tiered fans aren't going to feel much sympathy there. :naughty:
