    I'm not putting his name forward as an idea for the next GM, but I would be curious to hear what Bill Scott's role has been in terms of the Condors.

    Wonder if Oilers could lure Mark Stone here on July 1st. Assuming Oilers next GM is Mccrimmon. Mark Stone speaks very highly of him and credits much of his success to his time in Brandon.

    By all accounts Stone would be a great guy for the room, really help this team moving forward

    We don't have the cap space. Unless our plan is to go into next season with the exact same team + Stone. And even then....that's still a horrible roster

    That's why we need to be sellers...trade off Kassian, Talbot, Manning, Petrovic, Benning, Spooner for anything you can get picks wise...Lucic and Sekera too if you can. Just get picks, picks, picks and glorious cap space. Take those picks and trade up the best you can during the draft. Go hunting for replacements in the summer.
    I'd even consider trading Drai at this point for another winger that's willing to back check consistently (and can still score - Duschene maybe)?

    Go into next season adding Stone, Bouchard, Jones, Benson, Marody and Gambardella as well as a vet or two that isn't ready for pasture.

    Benson-McDavid-Draisaitl
    Lucic-RNH-Stone
    Khaira-Marody-Pujujarvi
    Gambardella-?-Kassian

    Klefbom-Larsson
    Nurse-Sekera
    Jones-Bouchard

    I disagree on the drafting piece especially when it comes to Bob Murray. anaheim has been drafting in the back half of the first for over a decade and still manage to find good players and develop them properly.

    Don't think Marody can carry 2 4th liners into a 3rd line

    I suspect that we'll see improvement from those wingers next season.

    I'll sadly believe it when I've seen it, both have taken good step backs this year.

    Fair enough. Ideally both start on a 3rd line next season and then if they want more ice they will need to earn it. Jesse saw a coaching change and is now not in favor with a 2nd coach, maybe that opens his eyes a bit? We'll see.

    Would love it, but he'll never come here. It's pretty much common knowledge now that he's going to Detroit at season's end

    I don't know who actually is the best to be honest, but I like what gregor said the candidate needs to do.

    Take a page out of Hervey's book. Hervey has been on record to say when he goes into an interview he lays out his plan. A plan that talks about the type of guys he wants to bring in as well.

    A smart guy should bring that up in the interview. I want to bring this and I want the power to fire anyone not named Bob Nicholson. I'd also bring up if you want to keep MacT and Lowe or whoever working for Katz, that they are never allowed to be at any meeting. If he wants to pay those guys to sit in the owner's box fine, but they aren't coming to meetings and I don't want them calling me with advice.

    I kinda wonder what's going to happen with Keith Gretzky. He's already making some moves. Is he actually auditioning for the role? Or will they hire a new GM and promote Keith to POHO? Or will he just stay on as Assistant Manager? I don't know why but my gut feeling tells me that is unlikely.

    The job is more attractive if some of the trash is already moved out.

    Of course, KG was going to make moves regardless, but I still wonder what his role will be with this team going forward. Does he just settle back in in the AGM role? I feel like he's probably the most competent guy among the Oilers management group, which I realize isn't saying much, but in contrast to those guys he seems to have a good hockey mind and ability to assess talent on a level comparable with some of the better teams in the league. I wouldn't mind keeping him around.

    Should be shown the door with the rest of the management. Did you forget that he was Peters 2nd in command and went along with his moves. Two nothing trades don't change anything, you need higher expectations.
