So if we hire Kane does this pave the way for hiring Quenville when Tippets contract is up?

I doubt we'd sign Quenneville - He's still in the penalty box with Bettman, which makes him persona non grata. I still firmly believe that the Oilers would love to rehabilitate Mike Babcock though.

Mike Babock does not need rehabilitation. And if Mike Babcock did need it, then the only person that could fix Mike Babcock is Mike Babcock. Mike Babcock.

Did he ever work for Team Canada?

This is why we need more than one game / week. Without something to focus on I just get stuck in a cycle of sardonic negativity and continually reference outstanding grudges I have against a hockey team I used to be emotionally invested in.

Sardonic negativity? Where? icon_lol icon_lol icon_lol

Lawdy, there's plenty of negativity to go around these days, isn't there? cry If only the Oilers were on a 5 game heater before weeks of no games. World Juniors not being cancelled might have helped.

I think collectively we need some kind of a win, not just a hockey win, a general win that most would agree is a win. I don't even know what the hell that looks like, and I might need help in recognizing it if it ever happens.

He may have had more years, but I could only find that Canada were the 76 champs and 81 runner up in the Canada Cup.

That wont do. There were literally zero glory year Oilers on the 76 team.

Would we get Scotty to hang around the team if we hired Stan?

Stan Bowman, Quenneville, Kane. Seriously, a little bit of guts to do what's not popular and we win a cup in min 2 years :)

He'll just make his own list of the five worst players on the team next time. His mistake was in delegating such a vital task.

I really dont see how there isn't a change made today! Be that coach, gm, or trade. The question to me is what is most likely, I belive it's the coach. Problem I have is that they are going to slap the intern tag on one of the guys already here I dont think any of those options are going to provide different results. I truly cant belive I'm going to say this because I have spent years admiring this coach from afar, with the caveat that I love him as a coach but wouldn't want him within a thousand miles of the oilers bench. We need a hard ass, and I'm wondering this morning if that hard ass might be torts. I think he would most certainly get more out of these guys, but being torts there would be a large price to pay.

Just because he hasn't before, doesn't mean he shouldn't now. He basically said as much at his press conference - said he doesn't believe in doing it, but then said that there's situations where it might be necessary.

I think there's a lot he may not be comfortable doing that he probably should still do. Although, he's an old man who doesn't seem to have a lot of drive, so maybe he just won't bother doing anything.

He a defensive coach with success with unskilled players. Why the hell was he hired to begin with? Goes with our roster like peanut butter and Chong. Oh well McDavid needs to learn how to trap. FFS.

To be fair, with a couple of exceptions our team IS largely unskilled.

They are also soft. Bunch of limp noodles. You can get away with a bunch of unskilled players if they have work ethic. These guys do not.

I'm still waiting for the team to look competent defensively.

Still not sure what to give Tippett any credit for. Special teams maybe? But it's not like he had a history of good special teams in his coaching career. Likely there are other factors making that possible here that we wouldn't really lose if we lost just him.

97 and 29 get the credit for the PP. I can only imagine how much Tippet has taught them about scoring. It would be like Stevie Wonder telling Michaelangelo how to paint.

Saw a good reply on Twitter to the Tippett situation. If it's actually down to the Saturday night game's results whether he keeps his job or not, it kinda already sounds like he shouldn't have the job.

Bet he wishes he'd stuck with the Kraken.
