The sheer number of players needed to become a cup contending team is ridiculous. That is where management has been a complete failure. The Oilers have not added a single player through trade or free agency that can be considered a core player going forward, other than Justin Schultz.

That is not building a team. That is sitting on you ass doing ****-all. That is why I believe the whole management team should have been part of the "house cleaning."
