It's Probably Nothing...

Less than 24 hours after a humiliating sweep, Wayne Gretzky is leaving the Oilers to work for the American TV Network TNT:

Gretzky is obviously one of the most prolific players to ever skate in a game of hockey, but he has failed to recapture that same level of success as an executive. He became a member of the Oilers leadership group in 2016, but the team has just three postseason births in that time and none past the second round. Nobody would blame Gretzky solely for the failures of the hockey operations department. However, one cannot help but wonder why his knowledge and experience never trickled down to the ice in a consistent way.

The question is, will this be a prelude to the last time the Oilers started hemorrhaging talent in the days following an unsuccessful exit from the playoffs?
