The summer is crucial for the Edmonton Oilers, as Leon Draisaitl, one of their stars, is in contract negotiations.

His current contract of $8.5 million per year could make him an unrestricted free agent in 2025, potentially disrupting the NHL player market.
Draisaitl's agent, Jiri Poner, has emphasized that negotiations must conclude by the end of August or face serious consequences for the team.
If a long-term agreement isn't reached, it could not only impact Draisaitl's future in Edmonton but also that of Connor McDavid, whose contract expires in 2026.
Poner highlights that Edmonton's decision could influence the team's long-term stability and even prompt McDavid to consider other options if his teammate leaves.
"There will always be rumors until Leon signs... There are two other crucial points. Firstly, what is the club willing to compromise in a short-term deal? Leon would then become a free agent again, and the club stands to lose too much. And secondly, what would Connor McDavid do a year later when his contract expires and Edmonton has let go of his best friend?" - Jiri Poner

The situation remains tense and could significantly impact the franchise's future direction.
