As the Edmonton Oilers gear up for another season, there are a few key things that need to happen in order for them to have a successful run. While there are many factors that can contribute to a successful season, there are three main things in particular that the Oilers need to focus on if they want to come out on top this year.
The first key to a successful Oilers season is team health. This is something that can be difficult to control, as injuries can happen at any time and to any player. However, there are things that the team can do to minimize the risk of injury and keep their players healthy throughout the season. This includes implementing a solid training program that focuses on injury prevention, as well as ensuring that all players are getting the rest. Player nutrition will help to stay healthy also, especially during the flu season.
Another key to success for the Oilers this season is a better defensive group. This has been a weak spot for the team in recent years, and it’s something that they need to address if they want to be competitive in the tough Western Conference. This means shoring up their defensive pairings and making sure that they have a solid group of defensemen who can hold their own against top opponents.
Finally, the Oilers need to ensure that no players regress this season. This can be a challenge, as players can have off years for a variety of reasons. However, by focusing on player development and providing the support and resources that each player needs to succeed, the Oilers can help ensure that everyone on the team is playing at their best.
