After Oilers lost to Red Wings at home, the team fired its general manager Peter Chiarelli. Oilers didn’t announce the replacement, but the plan with the former general manager failed because of poor performance.
Oilers fire the general managers after a home loss
Edmonton Oilers fired Peter Chiarelli, the general manager, after a home loss to Red Wings, the team with fewest standing points. You could wager on this game and win a lot of money with Pin-Up. His replacement wasn’t announced at once. The upper management of the team is formed by Craig MacTavish, Kevin Lowe, and Scott Howson.
Oilers hired Peter Chiarelli as the general manager in 2015. He headed Boston Bruins for 9 seasons and his team managed to win the Stanley Cup. However, his work for Oilers is full of controversial transactions and decisions, a lack of success, and a failure to surround the team star with other talented players.
The former general managers got a vote of confidence from the CEO because Oilers finished the season on the 12th place. Although Peter Chiarelli had a plan to fix things, it obviously didn’t work. He fired Todd McLellan and hired Ken Hitchcock trying to save the season and himself at the same time.
Edmonton Oilers lost 3 games in a row. The team decided to use a break to regroup and fire its general manager. His last controversial decision was signing Mikko Koskinen to a 3-year expensive contract just 24 hours before being fired.
