Latest Oiler Signings and Acquisitions in Oilers Discussion Posted July 4 · Report reply Glen Sather and John Muckler set the bar very high in Oil Country (indeed for the whole NHL). Ever since their leadership, the skid has been downward and long-lasting (a whole host of reasons). Hopefully, the Holland era will stop the skid and begin to reverse things. I don't know that we'll ever repeat the giddy heights we once enjoyed, but I "feel" that in a year's time, we'll be talking about how much better the team has become and how promising the Oilers look down the road (serious playoff contenders....not like the Flames). Well within the McDavid and Leon windows.
