You post a link to a message board thread that quotes a David Shoalts article and call it fact? Why not throw something in there from Ek and Garrioch while you're at it... but make sure it's quoted third-hand (like in someone's Twitter feed or something like that)...
The only fact is that there's about a zero chance in hell of Craig MacTavish coaching the Coyotes.
You have a pretty funny idea of what makes something a "fact". I live in Phoenix, and know exactly how this idiotic rumor was started. I also know it was addressed by Wayne Gretzky, himself, and squashed beyond all doubt. What I can't figure out is how anybody could have actually believed such blatently obvious false information. That seven million dollar figure is just so incomprehensibly far-fetched, I haven't the faintest idea how anyone could have possibly, even for just a moment, allowed themselves to even consider it something other than totally fantastical, let alone having the slightest chance of being a "fact".
So Oilers fans are complaining about the fact that MacTavish is a defensive coach and that Hemsky and Gagner and Kotalik need offensive minded coaches... But yet you say that MacTavish would thrive in Phoenix who is packed with offensive talent.... Turris, Mueller, Boedker, Lisin, Tikhonov, Doan, Lombardi, Prucha, Dawes to name a few.
Im talking about grit. Players like Doan, Dawes, Jovo.
