As the Edmonton Oilers exit the playoffs after losing to the Vegas Golden Knights, Ken Holland is gearing up for the off-season. Tough decisions await him regarding the team's future, and his recent comments about Jack Campbell may cause some concern.

Holland's optimistic claim that Campbell will improve in his second year is questionable, especially considering how Stuart Skinner was forced to step up and fill the role that Campbell was meant to play.

«I believe Year 2 is going to be pretty good.» Ken Holland on Jack Campbell

He noted there's a lot pressure initially when a goaltender signs a big contract and changes teams.




Instead of starting fresh and saving some salary cap, Holland has chosen to double down on a strategy that may not work in the end.

Holland's bold words may lead to speculation about his future with the team, and whether he will follow Kyle Dubas if things don't go as planned next season.
