The Edmonton Oilers are on the cusp of returning to contention for the first time in years. New general manager Craig MacTavish has reshaped the roster and made it more competitive. He succeeds former GM Steve Tambellini, who was regarded as too cautious.

MacTavish promised some "bold" moves this offseason. His moves may have not been "bold," but they improved the team. 

Even with these moves, the Oilers may not be over the hump yet. Moves would have to be made, but what would those be? 

Several Oilers are nearing the end of their contracts, and some need to step up after a disappointing 2012-13 season. 

Criteria for inclusion on this list would be players who had disappointing seasons, players whose contracts are expiring and players who MacTavish has put on notice. 

Here are the players who need to step it up this upcoming season.
