The Edmonton Oilers have been busy lately. As the offseason signings continue, the Oilers will struggle to find the chemistry and brotherhood they have seen on this team before. With the loss of Warren Foegele, Vincent Desharnais, and Ryan McLeod, new roles will need to be filled both on and off the ice. It seems like the Oilers are changing their identity this offseason. What part of the Oilers identity is changing, and will the Oilers regret this change?

Throughout the 2023-24 season, the Edmonton Oilers exuded a brotherhood. A sense of camaraderie that helped them salvage their season on multiple occasions. Whether it was by bouncing back from a 2-9-2 start to the season or by battling back from a 3-0 series deficit in the Stanley Cup Finals to force a Game 7, the Oilers were a resilient group that stuck together through thick and thin.
