Don't you think it would be a lead story across the hockey world?

All Oates did was make 3 scoring lines.

I question that Nick is playing better, and assume Ovi's TOI / usage does not reflect that of a 3rd liner.

Ovi has done nothing to get demoted. This is simply him after Montreal. He is our only scoring winger and best even at his worst. He was 5th last year in goals.

Oates is simply trying to get him to be his old self.

JoeB knows it and is saying it right now actually.

Ovi will butter Oates bread; he is not that dumb to demote him.
