Given his history, Chiarelli will exercise more patience, even as the Oilers continue to run out of time. He knows Talbot, Klefbom, and Draisaitl can be better. He believes the cold hands up front will eventually warm. He understands today’s trade possibilities could turn into handcuffs starting next year, the first season of McDavid’s $12.5 million annual payday. Chiarelli does not want to make a bad start turn into more of a long-term problem by making rash moves.
