MacT has made moves that (so far) look like they have improved the Oilers.

Most Notable:
  • He signed Gagner to a reasonable deal, which won't handcuff EDM in the future.
  • Drafted Nurse 7th overall, who couldn't have shown any better in training camp.
  • Traded Horcoff's constraining contract.
  • Improved the team defensively, signing Ferance, Belov, Grebeshkov, and acquiring Larsen.
  • Improved the size and grit of the forward corp through the additions of Joensuu, Perron, Gordon, Gazdic, and MacIntyre.
  • Extended Nugent-Hopkins, solidifying EDM's no.1 centre position.

Overall, in one offseason, MacTavish has made a lot of changes. Many might seem small, but collectively they look to have made the Oilers a better team. How much better is yet to be determined.
