Update on McDavid and Draisaitl's Long-term plans with the Oilers

Published August 9, 2023 at 1:30

The Edmonton Oilers have made significant progress over the years, now consistently competing, thanks to the leadership of Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl.

Although they were unable to advance to the second round against the Vegas Golden Knights, the duo impressively accumulated 281 points this season.

With the help of Ken Holland, the Oilers could potentially make a deeper playoff run next year.

Seravalli on DFO Rundown:

"I think there's a 90-some % chance that McDavid & Draisaitl are Oilers for a long time"

"I thought I saw Stasny mention somewhere that he's retiring"

"There's rumblings that [Toews isn't playing], but you don't know what the itch is like in Oct/Nov"

Despite previous concerns about the Oilers' cap situation, Frank Seravalli, an NHL insider, suggests that McDavid and Draisaitl may remain in Edmonton for the long haul.

Seravalli predicts a 90% likelihood of the superstar duo staying in Edmonton as the Oilers aim to build a dynasty.

If Holland can successfully execute this plan, the Oilers could potentially secure a championship and secure the loyalty of Draisaitl and McDavid for the foreseeable future.
