The Edmonton Oilers are in utter disarray right now, after getting off to a hot start to the season. As the season has progressed, the team's weaknesses have been exposed more and more and if they don't fix them, they won't make the playoffs at all. This is what the Oilers have to do to make the playoffs and potentially win a Stanley Cup.

Issues w/ Edmonton Oilers:

1. Goaltending has not been good

2. Goal Scoring depth

3. Defensive depth

The Goaltending situation for the Edmonton Oilers has not been stable to say the least. Mike Smith has been constantly hurt, so Mikko Koskinen has been the starter for most of the season, and he has proven to be quite inconsistent from game to game. In 20 appearances, Koskinen has a 3.19 GAA and .900 SV%, and Stuart Skinner started 10 games as well, with a 2.70 GAA and .916 SV%. If Mike Smith is going to be constantly hurt this year, the Oilers will definitely need to make a trade for a veteran goalie because Koskinen isn't going to get the job done.

Although the Oilers have of the two top 5 players, and they do get some scoring from Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, Zach Hyman, Jesse Puljujarvi, they really don't get much scoring from anyone else in the lineup. If they are to make a deep playoff run, they will add to add more depth scoring, since that is essential to a deep playoff run.

With the slew of Injuries and COVID-related issues that the Oilers have had on defense, it has shown a glaring weakness on defense, and that is that they really don't have enough depth if one of their defensemen go down with an injury. The Oilers defense should try to add a veteran defenseman on the back end to strengthen the D core; it will help if the Oilers make a deep playoff run.


Edmonton Oilers get Jonathan Quick, Johan Larsson, Christian Fischer

LA Kings get Lawson Crouse, 2023 2nd round pick (From EDM)

Arizona Coyotes get Mikko Koiskinen, Z.Kassian, 2024 1st round pick (from EDM).

Edmonton Oilers make a three-team trade with the LA Kings and Arizona Coyotes, which sees the Oilers pick up three players: Jonathan Quick is a proven veteran goalie with playoff experience, and he will definitely increase their chances of making a deeper run. The Oilers also add some depth players in Riley Nash and Christian Fischer, who add some toughness and grit to the lineup.

Edmonton Oilers sign Evander Kane to a 1 yr deal worth 700k.

Evander Kane may be a headache off the ice, but he is ultra-talented and he would be an excellent fit alongside either McDavid or Draisaitl.

Edmonton Oilers acquire Jake DeBrusk, Connor Clifton from Boston Bruins for Kailer Yamamoto, 2024 5th round pick.

The Oilers add some depth scoring in the form of Jake DeBrusk, as well as a depth defenseman in Connor Clifton.

Potential Lineup with everyone healthy:










Spares: Kr.Russell, S.Koekkoek, K.Turris, D.Shore, C.Sceviour, B.Perlini

With this lineup, the Edmonton Oilers have assembled a team that has a better chance at making a deep playoff run this season, at a shot at Lord Stanley's.

C Sean Couturier -After missing 2+ years, Sean Couturier is back and it seems like he hasn't missed a beat. Believe it or not, Couturier has been one of the top centers in the league so far with his all-around play, putting up 2 goals, 3 assists, 2 PPP, 63 FW, 24 SOG, and 1 SHP. Despite showing that he is still an elite center, Couturier is only owned in 20% of fantasy leagues. Pick him up now, while you still can. Ryan Johansen - Serves as the Avalanche's 2nd line center and plays on their all-world 1st pp unit. Despite not being the player he used to be, Johansen is still a valuable fantasy asset because of the players he plays with. Johansen has 4 goals and 4 PPPs along with 63 FW so far this season. He is owned in 29% of fantasy leagues. Sean Monahan - Someone must have gotten a time machine and put Sean Monahan in it because he is playing like he was back when he was in his prime. Monahan has been arguably the best player on Montreal this year, with 3 goals, 6 points, 2 PP


Here are some players you should pickup in Fantasy Hockey, sorted by position. Center Colton Sissons Colton Sissons is one of the best 4th line centers in the league, but in fantasy hockey, he could be even more valuable than he actually is in real life because of what he provides in the peripheral categories. So far this season Sissions has 5 goals, 1 PPP, 1 SHP, 12 PIM, 20 SOG, 89 FW, 15 hits, and 9 blocks. This is a terrific stat line and although you can't count on Sissons scoring a ton, he will fill out the FW, Hits, and blocks usually. Sissons is owned in 6% of fantasy leagues, snag him up while you can. Nick Bjugstad Nick Bjugstad is having an excellent year so far with the Arizona Coyotes, in fact he has played so well that he earned himself a promotion to play on the 2nd line along with Mattias Maccelli and Lawson Crouse. Bjugstad also gets time on Arizona's 2nd PP unit and 2nd PK unit. Bjugstad may not be a name who stands out to casuals, but his fantasy stat line is

Fantasy Hockey Forwards to Trade For

Here is a list of Players who you should consider trading for in Fantasy Hockey. Tage Thompson Tage Thompson had very high expectations of him heading into this season but has been a massive disappointment to this point in the season with only 7 goals, 8 assists, 4 PPP, 60 SOG, and 99 FW. Thompson has been better after coming back from injury and you would think that he is going to eventually start putting points in bunches. Because of how bad Thompson's statline is this season. it would be a good idea to trade for him because you may not have to give up a lot in return.  Elias Lindholm Elias Lindholm is another player who has had a slow start to the season with only 7 goals, 10 assists, 3 PPP, 68 SOG, and 297 FW so far this season. Lindholm is definitely going to want to play better if he wants to increase his value for his next contract and also showcase himself for a trade at the deadline. If Lindholm gets dealt to a contending team, his fantasy value would drastically improve b
