The Edmonton Oilers haven’t exactly been the model franchise since their star Connor McDavid signed his eight-year, $100M contract back in July of 2017.
The 22-year-old continues to do his part, having scored 224 points over the past two seasons and winning the Art Ross and Ted Lindsay awards in 2018. However, the team hasn’t built much of a winning program around him.
The franchise hasn’t reached the playoffs in those two years and the team still seems to have a questionable list of wingers to help McDavid and fellow star Leon Draisaitl. There are plenty of fans who are starting to wonder if McDavid regrets signing long-term with the Oilers.
Appearing on Sportsnet 590 radio on Friday, Elliotte Friedman said that he believes that new general manager Ken Holland will get two years to prove to McDavid that the team is heading in the right direction. However, he also believes that McDavid is getting impatient with the organization.
