The Oilers Rig

What Should The Oilers Do Next? SURVEY TIME!

Well Oilers fans – I don’t know about you, but for me… it has already felt like a very long off-season and I know that you’re consumed with playoff hockey and dreaming of the day that the Oilers give us the thrill of actually cheering for them in the post season. There has been some unreal hockey played thus far in the playoffs and I know that I look at some of the teams with a giant green envy monster on my shoulder and think to myself – why? Why can’t the Oilers do this? Why can’t they make it to the playoffs?


We all sit back and do the armchair GM moves in our heads and we all think that we could fix the Oilers. We have all the answers! Wait though…do we? I’ve seen and heard so many different opinions on social media, in talks with other Oilers fans and through the media.   So what do the majority of Oilers fans think management needs to do to get our team closer to a cup run?


We, at the Oilers Rig have put together a survey for you to have your say, tell us what YOU think needs to happen to get this Oilers team to succeed.

Once we get your answers, we’ll compile the results and hey…maybe we’ll send it off to MacTavish and Lowe.

We can call it “Oilers for Dummies”


Ok, we likely won’t do that…but we WILL post the results in a separate article for all to see!!
