ill fix this in 8-9 games, or did he mean years? what an idiot, retire already.
I think it's funny you've become a Yotes fan and they haven't improved a lick lol
Does anyone really care anymore?
This is a yearly thing now in Edmonton
I think it's funny that it took you until this season to realize Chia wasn't good at his job.
They constantly try new coaches and nothing ever changes... Outside 3 guys, this team doesnt have anybody that they can trade that can help this team make significant changes... So maybe they need to think outside the box and only have 1 untouchable guy and have everyone else on the block
So basically tell the league that RNH and Drai are available... Nobody really cares about the rest of the roster except McDavid obviously.. But he isnt going anywhere
Draisaitl and Nurse are 2 guys who can likely fetch returns much greater than what they're actually worth. Draisaitl sucks without McDavid and Nurse is awful defensively and racks up secondary assists.
Wait, you are laughing at Calgary paying GG "head coaching dollars" (which I believe was at the very low end of head coaching salaries) without mentioning that McLellan is still being paid the fourth highest salary in the league (and will get it next year too), plus whatever Hitch is getting?
Also "top calibre"? Really?
you still paying his salary with your season tickets though?
Bobby chimes in with some sensibilities.
That's nothing new. Edmonton coaches have been calling out their team for years.
Lowe and McTavish. Howson was over here for quite some time, and actually managed to pull the Jackets most of the way out of the abyss MacLean left us in. Made it easy for Kekalainen to finish the job.
His bottom 6 were AHL caliber, Matt Stajan was still playing regular minutes despite not being an NHL player for the last 3 seasons. Gulletsan got fired because the prim adonna’s forced the GM. Calgary’s loss is our gain!
Tell that to the islanders who have the same team - Tavares and are absolutely killing it. Hard work and buy in go a long way in this league. The Oilers have neither.
Yea its hard to say. But when you have your elite players floating on defense which leads to a goal against I feel like its more than just roster in Edmonton (Draisaitl on the Kane goal to be specific).
Please, please make this incredibly bad coach your head coach. He constantly misused the lineup, completely stiffled the top 6 with a stupid slow 80's style game. He wrecked Brodie beyond repair. He is a terrible coach. The fact that you think its your gain is hilarious. The Oilers hired a super dud to stand behind their bench as a possible replacement. The man is a clueless coach.
He makes Eakins look like a freaking genius.
If he becomes the head coach of the Oilers its the rest of the divisions gain.
People like to vastly underrate the value of structured defensive play and goaltending in order to write a narrative built around the value of hard work.
Need more first round picks and they'll be fine...
Man... anyone who thinks GG is a good coach is out to lunch, he was awful here in calgary. Just wait till you see him use Lucic on the PP every game all year.
He drafted McDavid how bad could he be.
I think you meant to say first OVERALL picks.
I have never seen so many first overall and high end picks turn into nothing.
Of course! The Oilers just need to try harder!
Why didn't anyone think of that! After all these years, all their problems - solved!
At the end of the year I can feel Hitch letting loose on the organization top to bottom on a verbal nuke. I for one cannot wait
It could happen, but his contract will not be extended and then Mark Messier will be GM and Esa Tikkanen will be the new head coach...with Moog, Jackson, Ranford, Nilsson, etc coming into "help"...which really means dinner with Katz.
You’re joking and I know that but this organization would pull some dumb stuff like that. It’s just mind numbing the front office hasn’t been touched at all. We gone through this coach and that coach, GM after GM. Now the teams compete level is in question. What’s the only constant? Kevin Lowe and his gang of egotistical clowns
