I don't disagree with a lot of what you're saying but my point is that the Oilers need more than just a goaltender to fix this mess
You dismissed any possible dealings with Philly just because they don't have a goaltender but the fact remains that they have some players that the Oilers can really use and with Holmgren looking for a shakeup of some sort to save his job, it's a prime opportunity for MacT to pounce.
The goaltending will have to be addressed as well of course but it's just one of many issues that ails this team.
I agree with this point. I just think that the first deal they should make is for a good goalie. Build from the net out, as they say.
And honestly, not a lot of what Philly has appeals to me. Simmonds would be a great add but fat chance Philly gets rid of him. If we can bend Holmgren over then go for it...
The things Philly fans say about Coburn raise a few red flags too.
