The Edmonton Oilers weren't the only team after Connor Brown.

Frank Seravalli, an NHL insider, often has access to information that the general public may not.

The Edmonton Oilers have been searching for a versatile forward to fill gaps in their team.

On #OilersNow,
mentioned that he thinks 12-16 teams were interested in Connor Brown.

He also told Stauffer he would handicap Draisaitl re-signing at upwards of 70% and picked EDM as his ‘way too early' 2024 Stanley Cup Champions.


With the recent signing of Connor Brown for one season, it appears that the Oilers' window for contending is still open.

Brown is a versatile player who can play in various positions as needed. He is also willing to fight for the puck in the corners. Brown previously achieved a 40-point season with the Ottawa Senators and may be looking to bounce back with the Oilers.

It seems that many other teams were interested in Brown's skills, with Seravalli mentioning that up to 12-16 teams were competing for his signature.

Given the limited salary cap, teams must be strategic in their spending. The Oilers made a wise choice in picking up Connor Brown.
