Discussion in 'Edmonton Oilers' started by OilerFan4Life, Nov 14, 2013.
Craig Mactavish expected to talk to media today.
i am going to say Smith and Bucky are done
Eakins fired and Messier named coach.
Or something along the Old Boys Club schtick.
I swear to god if they fired Eakins...
Watch Rishaug find a way to rip on Yakupov again.
I wasn't the only one thinking this! Okay.
Something about MacT not enjoying how Eakins... tore down the pictures of Gretzky and Messier in the locker room. Now they can be there... in person...
Maybe he resigned?
I think you guys expecting staff changes will be disappointed.
I feel like if they did it would be MacT stepping in as coach.
I'm so excited!
I don't think it'll be anything dramatic. I think he will say that although this has been a disappointing start to the season, the organization believes it is on the right track and that patience is required. This is a process and Rome wasn't built in a day...blah blah blah.
Interesting... He'll get ripped no matter what he does. I'm guess this is about something minor though, maybe he'll just reassure fans or some bs.
hired another Old Boys Club member I'm guessing
Yup. I'm expecting more of the same ********
Let's play a game....predict what MacT will say.
"We're all frustrated but we have the right players and coaches"
"We're seeing positive signs"
"I did 40 curls this morning. Thanks Dallas!"
Exactly. This is just going to be a "state of the team" type address as we are one-quarter through the season.
Exactly. PR, damage control. Nothing more.
Listening to Stauffer's show, apparently the Oilers are on the ice and he never mentioned any new or missing faces amongst the team or staff. Sounds like it will be a 1/4 season media address.
In an attempt to broaden the fan base, we are changing our name to the Alberta Oilers.
As an outsider, sounds more like a PR move. Edmonton is the talk of the NHL right now, and for all the wrong reasons. It's a PR nightmare, and after all it is a business. I expect him to go out there and try to calm some nerves.
They should save this meeting for Monday after Oiler fans have dealt with the impending embarrassing loss to the Flames and Sharks.
If ever there was a time to fire a coach its NOW! They made a mistake getting rid of Kruger IMO - he had the team playing far better than years prior. Now they are so down on themselves they actually need the motivational Kruger around.
The Oilers need a better coaching staff period.
There is nothing to say, we are worse this year with Eakins behind the bench, a healthy lineup, and improved experience on the ice (Ference, Gordon, Perron).
Eakins resigns/fired, Kevin Lowe named interim head coach.
Rishaug goes on ******ed rant about yak being a coach killer and that if he were a good ole canadian boy this wouldn't have happened.
Probably nothing worth a damn, maybe MacT reinforcing his confidence in Eakins?
Let's not get our hopes up. It's probably nothing.
