Seven games in four years, for a player that led the ahl team in scoring as a rookie and a first round pick, when the nhl team wasnt worth a sniff and had problems scoring? Sorry but that's not good enough.

Mactavish's extended stay in the unemployment line when it is fairly apparent that he wants to stay active is hardly an endorsement.
I'm not convinced Mact has wanted to be coaching over the last couple years. Speaking for myself if I had coached the Edmonton Oilers for 7seasons I don't know that I'd ever want to revisit the experience. I expect he will when the time comes.
