Part of me wants to see Laxdal with the Oilers, but at the same time, I'm also wary of making that move. It seems to me that a lot of the good WHL/junior coaches who have tried the NHL (Sutter, Clouston) haven't had much success in the bigs. Even Tom Renney had a pretty decent WHL team back in the 90's. The two leagues are different - men vs. boys.

Don't get me wrong, I love Laxdal's coaching work and I hope that he sticks with the OK's for a long, long time. But that said, I'd hate to see him turn out like the other WHL coaches who have tried to make the jump.
