With the Edmonton Oilers’ best season of the McDavid era in the books, GM Ken Holland will now be tasked with filling up the remaining holes in this roster to hopefully give the Oilers the next push towards a Stanley Cup.

Last summer featured a mixed bag of moves that resulted in a roller-coaster first half of the season. Luckily, Holland was able to atone for some of his mistakes by making a good mid-season coaching change and a solid deadline trade for Brett Kulak.

With the NHL draft looming and some off-season trades just on the horizon, I’m going to break down Ken Holland’s best and worst trades as GM of the Oilers. If he is to build a championship team, he will need to learn from these successes and failures.
