As a female with eyes, I'm thrilled.

Hopefully they let him do the post-game interviews again :sarcasm:

OntOilFan 06-11-2012 11:20 AM

There are no words ...

Could this organization be any more of a circus?

Embarrassed to be an Oiler fan. Again.

SilverHaireDevil 06-11-2012 11:20 AM

Bucky!! your new head coach!! :laugh::sarcasm:

backhandsauce 06-11-2012 11:21 AM

Good news. Mac T may have lost his group of players, but he is a very smart hockey man.

Great move.

Mr Forever 06-11-2012 11:21 AM

Tambo... really?

Wow, this definitely made me laugh. Didn't MacT deny coming back last week? Or was that just in a coaching capacity?

Coldhardmitch 06-11-2012 11:21 AM

I really hope we get to hear from all the posters who wanted him back. It sure seemed like there were a lot of them

Skm 06-11-2012 11:21 AM

Mark Spector speculating (no pun intended) that he might take Tambo's job if/when he fails:

:facepalm: seriously??? I wish people in Edmonton would picket Katz' house.

Skm 06-11-2012 11:23 AM

Tambellini just got a new puppet master :laugh:

Mr Forever 06-11-2012 11:23 AM

MacT as a potential GM replacement?!

AHHHHH

Imagine the deal Horcoff will get when his contract is up

Really? It seemed a legitimate source to me.

hockeyaddict101 06-11-2012 11:23 AM

Want to point out for people that think Jim Matheson has no connections. He was the first to write about this in Sunday's Journal.

oh God the old boys club drives me insane. We can't move on? Hemsky may be pissed. Haha
Seriously though, if he does replace Tambo, it can't be any worse.

But I think we're all tired of seeing old faces in new positions.
