Report: Oilers conducting 'full forensic analysis' amid 11-game skid
The Edmonton Oilers are reportedly considering all aspects of the organization as they search for answers in the midst of a lengthy losing streak.
The Oilers will be evaluating everyone over the next few days, according to TSN's Darren Dreger.
"From ownership down, there's a full forensic analysis going on this week in Edmonton investigating everything that's gone into this organization over the last several years," Dreger said during an edition of Insider Trading on Thursday.
It's unclear who is actually conducting the evaluations, but owner Darryl Katz, general manager Craig MacTavish, president of hockey operations Kevin Lowe, vice-chairman Bob Nicholson and head coach Dallas Eakins are expected to have their work examined.
The team's three-game win streak in late October reportedly saved Eakins' job, but the latest losing skid may not be so kind if it continues.
