I don't think he'd request one but if Chia does get fired ( ) this spring could I see the new guy coming in and just gutting absolutely everything? Sure. Colorado trading Edmonton Ottawa's first plus their own and other stuff for McDavid? RNH for a first +? Draisaitl? If you're a new GM given carte blanche you could do a lot worse than starting with 5 first round picks in your first draft (and likely more in the future for those guys) and TBH can anyone really throw out a better strategy for the Oilers right now than to totally gut this nightmare?
