    GMs rarely get fired during the season. I think the last one was Scott Howson in 2013.
    With Montreal off to a nice start, maybe Bergevin survives.
    Is there a team that would fire their GM in November if they're in the basement?
    I think the consensus will be Chiarelli, but are there other candidates?

    Francis. Well, "resigned" but yeah, Ron was on the outs shortly after the deadline.

    And a week ago I would have said Chia would be gone by Thanksgiving. He still might IMO.

    If Hextall doesn’t fire Hakstol, hopefully him. Hakstol is destroying that team.

    Smart money would be on Chia, but penny pinching owners are always ready to fire anytime.

    Edmonton could burn the whole thing down, with only McDavid left standing.

    LA looks like they're in trouble to me too.

    They still have to pay the guy when he gets fired. If anything penny pinching owners would rather keep a GM.

    I questioned the Rob Blake promotion, but he's only been at it a year and a half. Probably too soon to fire him even if they bottom out by Thanksgiving.

    It doesn’t make logistical sense to fire GM during the season.

    Benning is actually doing a damn good job. I'm sure hes sorry he doesnt have a time machine to make the process faster for you, but we have a lot of nice pieces coming up.

    Wonder if Jim Nill will last all year. If things dont pick up in Dallas, this could be his last season

    I was hoping for it last year honestly. Doesnt look like much improved.

    With their calibre of players they should never have only 2 goals over a 3 game stretch, especially when scoring is way up.

    franceso aquillini does not have a history of letting anyone go mid season. Won't be Benning.

    He really screwed up this off season. Too focused on the flashy moves, when they didn't work out he didn't have any secondary plans. If we're not looking good by December he needs to go.

    Someone is going down in Edmonton if the season starts to get away.

    Hopefully Bowman, Q and the entire coaching staff, sick of their idiotic decisions.

    Coaching staff.... maybe if things go really badly, but doubtful mid-season. However, Bowman won't be let go anytime soon, for better or for worse.

    The Oilers Owner D. Katz has left his $120 million Malibu mansion and was with the team (and still currently is) since the Jets game.

    Pretty sure he’s ready to clean house but the 3 game win streak has bought the coach and GM some time. Lots are speculating that he was with the team to get rid of the coach. But let’s be honest. If he wanted to get rid of the coach he could have called Chia to have him fired. I think he’s with the team to get rid of Chia and the coach and clean house.

    The Oilers Luxory boxes were sold with 3, 5, and 7 year leases. So some of those boxes are up for renewal after this season. The locals are restless. We want Chia’s head. That feeling is all over the city which likely extends to some of those luxory boxes.

    The Oilers are a cash cow. We are one of the highest revenue teams in the league. So Katz is going to want that to continue. So if the the City wants results and for the shit show to stop the easiest solution for him is to fire everyone and have the money keep rolling in.
