We already have witnessed that Nelson couldn't get these kids to commit yet with a lessor bunch of kids he can get them to work. I don't think a Torterlla is the answer either. We need to find that next MacLean, McLellan or Byslma, but easier said then done.

For the record I'd like to see what Kreuger can do with some better talent, but at the same time he needs to figure out how to adapt better. If his style is to roll lines and it doesn't work because he doesn't have talent, then he better find a better system.
I like a Quenneville type move by the Oilers, get a guy who's an established coach who can take the team to the next level. I will say Flat Out, that guy is Lindy Ruff, he's a former player, long time NHL coach and has coach the whole spectrum of players(given their talent)

If they're going to make a change, he's the guy you get, imo.
