Oilers Ready to Make a Big Move for Blackhawks Goalie

Seeing the Need: Oilers Want a Better Goalie. The Edmonton Oilers, known for scoring goals, realize they need a better goalie right away. Even with a new coach, they're gearing up for a big move, ready to spend to get Petr Mrazek from the Chicago Blackhawks.

Locked In: Petr Mrazek is the Top Choice



Petr Mrazek, playing for the Chicago Blackhawks, is the main guy the Oilers want for their goalie position, according to reports. Since GM Ken Holland knows Mrazek from before, the Oilers are all set to do what it takes to get him.


«Cap constraints may force Edmonton into a more low-key move, whether it's any of the aforementioned options or someone like Petr Mrazek with whom general manager Ken Holland has some experience. Then again, with the transition of power happening at the top, Holland's connections may no longer be as much of a priority as Jeff Jackson's are.»

Playing It Smart: Mrazek's Familiarity and Low-Risk Appeal



The Oilers think getting Petr Mrazek is a smart move because he's familiar with GM Ken Holland when they were both in Detroit. They see him as a goalie who's good and fits with what they can afford, making him a smart and safe choice for their team.

Even with things changing in the organization, with Jeff Jackson taking on a bigger role, Ken Holland is still determined to get Petr Mrazek. The Oilers are ready to work through these changes to bring in the goalie they think will make a big difference. While they know there might be challenges in getting Petr Mrazek, especially with money and trade stuff, the Oilers are ready to figure it out. They're open to talking and making smart moves to bring Mrazek onto the team.


With stars like Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl in their best playing years, the Oilers really want to get Petr Mrazek. They know they need a better goalie fast to make the most of what these top players can do.
