Apparently Oates walked around Hershey like his sh** didn't stink and was a complet A-Hole to everyone. According to this guy, Oates ran practice and rarely let French intervine and French and Mann were at practice basically to pick up pucks. I am really hoping Washington didn't make a mistake here by hiring Oates and skipping over John Cooper. Devils fans seemed happy to get rid of him and said his PP in NJ was pretty horrendous. Either way I'm glad he's out of Hershey and the team seems to have been playing a lot better since his exit.
They still using Oates's system or did they tweak that when he left?
