There's no doubt the 2016-17 Oilers developed a close relationship over the course of the season.
In his exit interview, Mark Letestu was asked about the team dynamic in the dressing room.
Here's what he had to say:
"I think it's a tight-knit group in there," said Letestu. "When Connor says everyone has a voice, he's not blowing smoke. It's true in there. Everybody's got a voice, there's not a divide in the room, it's not cliquey or anything like that. We've got a really good group; it's special in there.
"I think that's why it's so disappointing that we're going home right now. We're not done being around each other, we really enjoy each other's company that much and the experiences that we've been able to share with each other. I think you've seen that with what's gone forward with the team."
