    I'm also fine with tippett. I'll say this though, hitch is as defensively minded as coaches come. Maybe he's not the best player coach but I think the teams overall ability defensively is more to blame than the coach.

    The NHL is interesting though because the teams are so close these days, I could see this team finishing in the bottom five or making the playoffs next season. Really getting hard to predict.

    I just can't get excited about anything regarding the Oilers right now. I mean, we have two 100 pt players on the roster, a new GM and a new coach, yet I can't get excited. I want to, I really do, but I'm so tired of disappointment. I remember being excited when Chiarelli and McLellan were hired, but that didn't work out so well.

    I'm with you. I remember being very hyped that we "finally had an experienced and competent GM and Coach". I will continue to cheer for the team and hope for the best but at this point I just expect the worst...

    It's the same problem as pre-McDavid. They have their high 1st round picks who (mostly) do well and everything else is garbage. This year their fourth-best forward (after the big three) was Chiasson at 38 points. Fifth-best was Kassian at 26. Two 100-point players and the team finished 20th in scoring. Not good.

    An interesting read about Tippett and his coaching style, should he end up being the coach of the Oilers.

    According to Kurt Leavins of the Edmonton Journal, the Oilers "have an eye on" German forward Frederik Tiffels after his performance at the world hockey championship.

    Tiffels impressed the Oilers as he scored two goals and posted four points in eight games at the worlds, his third straight year attending the tournament. He played alongside Oilers top forward Leon Draisaitl, who could convince him to sign in Edmonton.

    Back in 2015, Tiffels was selected in the sixth round, 167th overall by the Pittsburgh Penguins. He spent 12 games with the AHL's Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins in 2017-18 and 44 with the ECHL's Wheeling Nailers, but has yet to play a contest in the NHL.

    In the summer of 2018, he ended up getting waived by the Pens and spent this year with Kölner Haie of the German Hockey League. In 27 games with Kolner, the 24-year-old posted six goals and 22 points while adding four goals and nine points in 11 playoff games.

    why not...I have no idea if this kid or Nygard are going to be impact players in the NHL, but at this point we have nothing to lose by trying something a little different. Obviously we haven't been able to draft some depth scoring, we haven't been able to acquire any via trade, and we've struck out via Free Agency.
