Warren Foegele

It is not cause Warren Foegele has had a bad season that he is on my list, it is because I thought he would be a better fit on this team. So far this season Foegele has been unable to secure a solid role on this team.

He has bounced around from line to line. I was really hoping he would start on the third line and play there the whole season. He just hasn’t been able to hold that spot. Plus with the addition of Derick Brassard he has now been pushed to the 4th line.

The good news about Foegele being on the Edmonton Oilers 4th line is he is over qualified for that roll. Putting him with McLeod and Ryan makes for a 4th line that is hard to play against and has the ability to score goals.

Foegele’s stats for the Edmonton Oilers this season haven’t been terrible, they are about average so far for his career. It isn’t the stats for Foegele that have him below expectations it has been his play. Like I said before he has been very up and down this season.

If he can level out his play the rest of the way, he is going to be an important piece in the Edmonton Oilers playoff success. When it comes to the playoffs the teams that go on deep runs have good depth players. When it comes to depth players Warren Foegele needs to be one of the top players.
