Cody Ceci thrived in a top-pairing role under Jay Woodcroft and Dave Manson, but can he sustain this level of play over a full season?

It’s quite evident that the Edmonton Oilers markedly improved ever since their coaching change. In early February, the team sat outside a playoff spot under Dave Tippett and Jim Playfair. Once they were replaced with Jay Woodcroft and Dave Manson, the team held an excellent regular-season record of 26-9-3, ranking third in the entire league during that span, and the team went on to advance to the Western Conference Finals in the post-season.  Nearly every player saw a considerable improveme

Road to Nowhere

Road to Nowhere

Graph via Puck IQ The Oilers would have given significant riches for a player like Warren Foegele (as he currently plays) in the fall of 2015. That kind of winger, young and with some skill, would have been a solid third-line player behind Taylor Hall and David Perron on left wing. Now, the team has too many good players and not enough cap room, so someone has to go. Have the Oilers ever had too many good wingers? Why yes, yes it has happened before. THE ATHLETIC! Lowetide: W

Inking Jack Campbell to a 5-year/$25 million deal comes with risk but something ha
