The Edmonton Oilers have made some significant moves this summer, but with Leon Draisaitl's upcoming free agency, even bigger decisions loom.

For a while now, the Oilers have faced the looming free agency of Leon Draisaitl. After reaching their first Stanley Cup Finals as a team, many thought the pressure would ease. However, it seems that's not the case, as Draisaitl's agent has issued an ultimatum:
«There's no rush yet, but either it happens quickly, i.e. by the end of August, or it doesn't work out at all,» Poner said in German. «It will also become clear whether Edmonton wants him or not. Leon holds all the trump cards.»

According to his agent, if a deal isn't made by August, Draisaitl will enter the next season as a free agent, putting immense pressure on Edmonton to strike a big deal.
Frank Seravalli also revealed that the team is willing to take their time, showing confidence in their relationship with Draisaitl even without a new deal in place. Simply put, if a deal is to be made, Draisaitl wants to become the highest-paid player in the NHL. With Connor McDavid's free agency coming up a year later, how the Oilers handle Draisaitl's situation will significantly impact those negotiations as well.
