Oilers' Chiarelli, Senators' Dorion finalists for GM of the year award

Oilers' Chiarelli, Senators' Dorion finalists for GM of the year award

"There's still an element of growth in our D", Chiarelli said during Tuesday's news conference.

"We're okay for next year".

"We had significant improvement in pretty much everything". Prior to the season he added depth to his defense by acquiring Adam Larsson in a trade with the New Jersey Devils and signing unrestricted free agent Kris Russell, and the result was the Oilers allowed 207 goals, the fewest in an 82-game season since 2001-02.

Well, they're further along than in recent years when one of the biggest criticisms of the Edmonton Oilers by some was the National Hockey League team's penchant for drafting forwards first overall when there was a clear need on the blue-line.

The 30-year-old Sekera was injured six minutes into Game 5 of his second-round series against the Anaheim Ducks when he was crunched along the boards by Ryan Getzlaf. It was their first 100-point season since 1986-87. He had eight goals and 27 assists during the season and had one goal and two assists in 11 playoff games this season.

Democrats seek impeachment of Donald Trump
When that ended, Trump asked everyone to leave except Comey, and he eventually turned the conversation to Flynn. The existence of the memo was first reported Tuesday by The New York Times .

But Chiarelli said "there's still a fair bit of work to be done". "That will improve with the guys working on it because we were pretty specific about it in the (player) exit meetings", he said.

The Edmonton Oilers already have a big hole to fill on defence next season.

Chiarelli echoed comments made last week by Oilers coach Todd McLellan, urging critics to not judge Eberle, a proven goal-scorer, by the small sample size of 13 playoff games. "If you look at Klefbom and Larsson and take out Sekera and Russell because they're older, we've got Matt (Benning) and Darnell (Nurse) on the other pairing". "I thought he was really good for our team the way he approaches the game, the way he battles, his poise, his skating".

"Do we have a championship D-corps?"
