Edmonton Oilers general manager Craig MacTavish has been a busy man this off-season on and off the ice. Below is a quick look into what MacT has been able to accomplish so far this summer:
Sam Gagner recently signed on for the three seasons with the Edmonton Oilers and I started to think about what his upside was and who he compares to long term. One name that immediately came to mind was Joe Pavelski, who has turned into a pretty darn good second line center in San Jose.
The Edmonton Oilers wish list this off-season is a long one with NHL quality players needed throughout the line up. At a quick glance the needs look like this:
Hall Nuge Eberle
____ Gagner Yakupov
PRV ____ _____
Brown Lander ____
Obviously these holes can not be all be filled this off-season and Mact certainly has a ton of work to do.
