I couldn't care less where the Flames are sitting in the standings. I'm worried about where the Oilers are. Where is all this evidence that Mactavish has improved this team? Same holes are still there and now he's brought in a coach that's tinkered with his top of the league power play and now they can't score to save their lives. That power play was one of the only reasons that kept them in games last year. This team is only as good as it's record, it isn't a tweak or two away from turning the corner.
Mactavish may have had good intentions back in April when he took this job. He may have tried to do some things in the summer but he failed. Failed big time because this team IS worse than it was last year. Maybe he figures things out and next year or the year after that things get better. It will be at that point when you can say he's doing a good job but you sure can't say it now with any degree of honesty.
