Would be great to see him have a solid year here. Sign him to a longerterm deal.... next year. I know, always next year, we flourish.
Another area of weakness with the team is the lack of size up front, but the Oilers have a plethora of young players coming up through the system who bring size and physicality in their games. Chase is a feisty agitator, something also sorely missing from this team, but Pitlick, Khaira, Moroz, Zharkov, McCarron, and Yakimov bring size and physical play. Adding some of these players along with Nurse and Klefbom next year and/or the year after will go a long way to stabilizing this team for the future, putting them on a fairly solid trajectory for years to come.
