pointed to individual players and asked Oates if the player didn't have the talent
to be on the team. Soon after Oates was gone.

I think if you look at the talent, or better yet lack of talent, on that team, Oates
was justified. With out looking at the roster, I would bet only close to 1/3 would
make the current B's roster.
It must have been awkward telling CJ Young that he did, in fact, not have enough talent to be on the team.
