You can expect the on ice play to improve hopefully with a new coach and a new system, but I agree with Patches, expecting to go "All-In" again is just not smart management.
Roll with what we have, hope some players bounce back under a new leader, and hopefully that's enough to get to the playoffs....where anything can happen.
Dropping cap and very little flexibility makes this the best case of direction IMO, if you don't like we know you like the Oilers, jump on that bandwagon for our re-tooling year.
