But McLellan breaks a long streak - first Oilers coach since Ron Low to get another head coaching gig in the NHL! Congrats to him?



That is pretty telling isn't it? That no other Oilers head coach got another NHL job since.. since.. I can't remember when.

Congrats to MacLellan entirely I'd think.



Ron Low with the Rangers. That’s the last one.

Don’t forget Dallas Eakins with the ducks in a bit.


Well, once the curse is lifted, who knows how many times we will see it happen.

McLellan, Eakins, Nelson...we might see a few get new gigs.

For what it’s worth, I hope teams hire McLellan and Eakins. I think they both were pretty poor here and so I’m happy to see them flounder on one of our rivals. Eakins can drive their players nuts with stupid mantras and ridiculous defensive schemes, while McLellan can kill their special teams and then belittle his own players. I’m less excited about Nelson working as head coach somewhere else as he could be entirely competent.


Rumor is that Ralph is looking for a management job if he comes back to the NHL. Might be an ultra rare guy to get promoted vs his Oiler job.


What do you mean? We’ve had plenty of our guys get promoted up:

Kevin Lowe - asst coach to head coach
Kevin Lowe - head coach to GM
Kevin Lowe - GM to POHO
Kevin Lowe - POHO to Vice-Chair and Alternate Governor
Craig MacTavish - Asst Coach to Head Coach
Craig MacTavish - Head Coach to stepped down to Special Assistant to the GM
Craig MacTavish - Special Assistant to the GM to GM
Craig MacTavish - GM to Asst GM and special advisor
Craig MacTavish - Asst GM to whatever the hell his title is now.
Scott Howson - Assistant GM to Blue Jackets GM
Scott Howson - Blue Jackets GM to Special Advisor.
Scott Howson - Special Advisor to Assistant GM
Scott Howson - Assistant GM to not renewed to scout to whatever the hell he is now.

You play your cards right and being an Oilers exec isn’t a hindrance to getting a promotion. It’s just that they don’t promote based on ability or aptitude and if you lose your Oilers job, no one at another team is likely to touch you...


I was actually thinking of Howson, so could only say Krueger would be a rare case. obviously those other 2 turds don't count :)

Krueger definitely has a chance to be the first to earn a promoton vs his oilers job and not be a sad disappointment though!


To distill all this banter down.. since MacLellan and Eakins aren't in the NHL and seems to be the head coaches in waiting Ron Low is the only former Oilers coach to be rehired in the NHL. That's a sad state of affairs donchaknow?!

Krueger was unfairly treated by the Oilers Management as was Tom Renney.. but Tom landed on his feet rather well and Ralph went to an entirely different sport and rose to an area of prominence!

I don't think Ralph would give up his sweet European deal to come back to volatile world of NHL coaching. I think he's done.. he like to coach for sure but his deal in Soccer is amazing.. or so it appears.





Ralph is back on the market. His EPL contract expired and I think I saw that the new owners of his EPL team are not that good and he wants to move on anyways. His name is out there now for NHL jobs



"The Edmonton Oilers are not where they should be right now and that is unacceptable. We need to get better immediately. That starts today"
-Kevin Lowe, April 2013


"Next year (15/16) I would forecast as another developmental year"
