What Edmonton Oilers need to do in the Offseason

The Edmonton Oilers reached the Conference Finals this year, which shows progress, but they still have lots to improve on and not too much cap room. The Objective for the Oilers this offseason should be to move some of their higher-paid veterans and acquire a goalie. This is what the Edmonton Oilers should do in the offseason.

Before the 2022 Draft, a few trades are made

Edmonton Oilers trade Jesse Puljujarvi and Warren Foegele to the Detroit Red Wings for Robby Fabbri and Filip Zadina. Detroit Retains 1.25 million of Robby Fabbri's annual cap hit.

This is a good trade for both teams, as it gives both teams what they need and all players involved get a change in scenery.

The Oilers also trade Kailer Yamamoto to the Nashville Predators for Luke Kunin, 3rd round pick '22.

The Oilers might not be able to afford Kailer Yamamoto, so they ship him off to the Predators for Luke Kunin and a draft pick

Tyson Barrie is traded to the Seattle Kraken for 2nd round pick '22.

This could end up being a steal for the Kraken as Barrie is a player who had more than 40 points the last two seasons, to get him for just a 2nd round pick is a steal, but Edmonton needs the cap space.

Zack Kassian, 1st round pick '22 to the Montreal Canadiens for Jake Allen, 2nd round pick '22.

The Oilers dump Zack Kassian's contract by including their first-round pick from this year, while also getting Jake Allen and Montreal's 2nd round pick back, this is a fantastic trade for both sides.

Mike Smith is traded to the Arizona Coyotes for 5th round pick '22.

Since the Oilers are retooling their goaltenders, they trade Mike Smith to the Coyotes for a draft pick.

2022 Draft

58-Matyas Sapovaliv

62-Calle Odelius

84-Topias Leinonen

132-Connor Kurth

158-Vsevolod Komarov

190-Tim Almgren

The Oilers didn't have much to work with in terms of draft picks, but they make the most of it and added some much need depth to the farm system.

Edmonton Oilers re-sign a few players:

Luke Kunin-4yrs/3M per

Brett Kulak-3yrs/2M per

Filip Zadina-2yrs/1.8M per

Tyler Motte-3yrs/1.75M per

Ryan McLeod-2yrs/1.2M per

Josh Archibald-2yrs/800k per

Edmonton Oilers re-sign All Non-Roster RFAs

This is how the lineup looks like next season










Although the goaltending and defense is still not ideal, this is the best you can do given the cap situation the Oilers are in this offseason.

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 Waiver Wire Goalies to Pickup

 Here are some goalies to pickup now in Fantasy Hockey: Semyon Varlamov Semyon Varlamov has been solid in net for the New York Islanders in the last month of the season; he has a 2-2 record with a 2.35 GAA, .927 SV%, and 153 Saves during that timespan. Even though Varlamov will only get a few starts with Ilya Sorokin there, he has proven to be a reliable backup when called upon. Varlamov is owned in 41% of Fantasy leagues, you should take a flyer on him if you need a goalie with a good GAA and SV%. Antti Raanta Antti Raanta has played great for the Carolina Hurricanes in the last month of the season; he has a 3-0 record with a 1.49 GAA and .946 SV% during that timespan. With Fredrik Andersen back, Raanta will be back in the backup role, but he has thrived in this role and should continue to do so. Definitely, pickup Raanta if you have Fredrik Andersen because he doesn't start every game. Philipp Grubauer Philipp Grubauer has been playing a lot better for the Seattle Kraken in the l
