    Default The Oilers Won't Make the 2018 Playoffs Because of Mark Letestu and Oscar Klefbom

    It's very simple why the Edmonton Oilers won't make the playoffs. You need look no further than the worse +/- players on the team.

    Mark Letestu has cost the Oilers so many games with his mistakes. He is at -10. He has a career of -41. And he is 33 years old. He won't get better in this lifetime.

    Next is Oscar Klefbom. He is at -8 this season and career -32. Do you play him or Yohann Auvitu (+7)? You probably have to use Klefbom because it is expected. But the minute Klefbom screws up again, and you know he will, replace him with Auvitu. Give Auvitu the chance to prove himself because he has been doing great so far.

    However, I do not blame the players, because they are doing their very best. The problem is Todd McLellan and Peter Chiarelli for holding onto these players, dragging the team down into the abyss.

    Lucic-McD-Pulju
    Khaira-Drais-Strome
    Maroon-RNH-Caggiula
    Slepy-Letestu-Kass

    Nurse-Russell
    Klefbom-Larsson
    Sekera-Benning

    After Letestu and Klefbom are gone, next on the chopping block should be Michael Cammalleri and Drake Caggiula because their +/- is almost as bad.

    Oilers 0, Jets 5

    Letestu -12
    Klefbom -9
    Caggiula -7
    Sekera -6
    Cammalleri -5

    Unless these players are traded, Oilers have no chance making the playoffs next year.

    These players have to go. Numbers don't lie.

    Auvitu is +7 but they don't let him play.

    Oilers 1, Chicago 4

    I don't watch more than 2 minutes per game of the Oilers on PVR. The incompetence level of Peter Chiarelli and Todd McLellan is mind blowing.

    Letestu -14
    Klefbom -12
    Caggiula -10
    Sekera -8
    Cammalleri -7
    RNH -5

    Comical! I propose the players wear clown suits next time they are on the ice. Of course, someone is always going to respond that +/- doesn't matter. Funny!

    I don't like to watch losers lose so I don't watch the Oilers more than 3 minutes per game, just the highlights. But maybe they will do better if they put Draisaitl and Maroon back with McDavid.

    Maroon - McDavid - Draisaitl
    Lucic - Nugent-Hopkins - Puljujärvi
    Cammalleri - Strome - Khaira
    Caggiula - Letestu - Kassian

    Nurse - Larsson
    Sekera - Russell
    Klefbom - Benning

    Arizona, worst team in the NHL, was up 2-0 on the Oilers before Oilers came back to win it thanks to the best +/- on the team this season, Darnell Nurse with 2 goals against Arizona.

    This game: Klefbom (+1), Caggiula (-1) and Letestu (-1).

    This season:
    Letestu -15
    Caggiula -11
    Klefbom -11
    Sekera -8
    Cammalleri -7
    RNH -4

    Next season these players better not be on the team otherwise Oilers still won't make the playoffs again.

    vs. Vegas

    I can say for the first time this season the Oilers have the proper lines so they should surprisingly do well the rest of the season if nobody gets injured.

    Maroon-McD-Drais (best line in the NHL)
    Lucic-RNH-Pulju (good 2nd line)
    Khaira-Strome-Cammalleri (good 3rd line)
    Caggiula-Letestu-Kass (Caggiula and Letestu are the two big problem players with horrible +/-)

    Nurse-Larsson (watch Larsson's +/- improve fast playing with Nurse)
    Sekera-Russell (they did great together last season)
    Klefbom-Benning (Klefbom s/b is on the bottom with his horrible +/- and Benning is slow)
