    Really interesting to see what Oates has done since leaving coaching. He said recently that on the Spittin' Chiclets pod that he won't be coaching again so it doesn't interfere with his video consulting company with all those NHL players.

    Surprised to see he's affiliating himself with a club, as he seemed to think going solo was the best bet moving forward.

    The title didn't say what position and my jaw dropped thinking someone was crazy enough to make him head coach again.

    Didn't he seriously restrict Ovechkin's scoring?

    My condolences to Kovalchuk...

    He should change everybody's curve to Ovechkin's curve.

    He actually changed OV's game into what it is now.

    OV had a mid career slump of sorts where it looked like he would never win another rocket..

    Oates turned him from a predictable north south threat into more of a Brett Hull type scorer where the play came to him.


    OV regained his rocket form because of Oates.

    Then it was Dale Hunter, who forced him to play RW if I remember correctly...

    He made Kovy try RW when he was here.

    Oates had him play RW, Hunter didn’t play him at all.

    Nope.

    No no no. No.

    If Ovechkin were still employing what he went through with Oates, he wouldn't even be a left wing anymore.

    So what happens if one of the independent players he "consults" signs as a FA with the Kings?

    Sounds like he got the deal Belfry got with the Leafs (which is basically who Oates has replicated his consulting practice from).

    Coming from a Caps fan, beware of Oates! When he was the Caps coach, he was telling the Caps goalie coach on how to coach the goalies! Oates can be very arrogant and egotistical. I hope he doesn't ruin the Kings player development program, even as a consultant!

    As a die hard Caps fan, I can tell you that is everything as close to false!

    I'm wrong?

    So Ovechkin scored 32 goals and 38 goals. The 2 lowest of his career the two years prior to Oates.

    Then when Oates became coach, he scores 32 in 48 games (Rocket / Hart winner) and 51 goals (Rocket Winner).

    What's the story then?

    Step 1: Kopitar and Quick trade sticks.
    Step 2: Kovalchuk to RW
    Step 3: Stanley Cup

    Oates played forward in the NHL, so he must know how to coach defensemen, which means he knows how best to coach goalies... right?

    Keep Quick as far away from Oates as possible.
