Do not hire an ex coach who can't get an NHL job who failed miserably here years ago who has had one year of management experience as a vice president in charge of something or other.
Do not hire an AHL coach on whim after talking about the need for coaching stability who you could have had as an associate coach for year to see how he operates.
If you insist on hiring this AHL coach get rid of the two obvious nepotism assistant coaches and let him hire a full staff.
Do not boldly strut forth on the day of your hire with the rest of the 'dream team' of management and talk about bold moves, being impatient, being able to judge players very quickly, not making any excuses and the fact that you are going to change the culture of the team and a day later saying you are going to get rid of two vets.
In the end the only thing that matters in the whole debate we continually have on these forums is the record of the team. Unless the Oilers get very hot over the next 13 games they will in effect be out of the playoffs by the 1/3 mark of the season and that would be totally unacceptable, an embarrassment of a very high magnitude.
