The Edmonton Oilers have struggled to make a deep run in the playoffs to this point, but with the best player in the NHL, many within the organization feel as though it's just a matter of time.

Despite putting up historic numbers, McDavid and co. are yet to record a win in the Western Conference Finals, and now, it's got many fans concerned about his free agent status in 2026.


While he's had great regular season success, the goal is to win a Stanley Cup, and unless he can see progress being made towards that, there's a chance he could walk away.

A solid move from the Oilers



The Oilers have now seemed to realize this as well, as they've made the smart front office decision to hire McDavid's long-time agent as the CEO of Hockey Operations.


Whether it's a good move or not, it's clear this was made with his free agency decision in mind, and with this, if the team can take steps forward on the ice, it's clear they're in with a good chance of keeping him around.
