Tambellini better be gone before the draft. Worst GM in NHL history. He's worse than Mike Milbury.

It really is a joke. A sad, sad joke.

I'm sorry, but I simply cannot pretend that if this team had Ruff, Hitchcock, etc. that this team would somehow be a playoff team.

This team is a lottery team because we have terrible bottom 6 players, and I mean TERRIBLE. We have awful defense other than Smid and Gilbert, and half of that duo is hurt. Lastly, we have ZERO secondary offense and our THREE best forwards have all been out this year.

I'm fine with Renney being fired, I'm just not going to pretend that this team is going to turn it around if/when it happens.

If they do, I'll happily eat crow because it will mean we are winning. Win-win scenario I guess.

Tambellini needs to be fired before Renney. Tambellini wants to tank and that's why he didn't make a trade or sign a defenseman knowing that Whitney wasn't healthy to start the season.

Poor kid, he cares a ton. Too bad he's been surround by complete garbage since he's been here.
Rob Brown suggesting on air right now that Hall was "screaming about why we pulled the goaltender" .

Dan tencer confirming that Hall said "why did we pull the *bleeping* goalie ? "

It sure looked to me like he was saying "I'm sorry" toward the bench . That's just a sad sad thing to have to witness .

**** Tamby , **** Katz , and **** Renney .

Good for Hall showing some stones I hope he blasts Renney .
Pulling the goalie at that point was peewee coaching .

Renney says pulling the goalie was the right thing to do. He also laughed when the Hall thing got brought up and tried to make a joke about how the question was asked.

Defense. It really has to be the worst group in the league, goals against stats be damned. If anything Renney is doing right, it's making this atrocious defensive lineup look somewhat competent with defensive systems. But even systems can't make up for lack of talent: defenseman that can't move up the puck; that can't make a good first pass; that have no high-end offensive instincts; that lack a great point shot. A good defense that can move the puck and make plays vastly improves offensive output.

Renney is so out to lunch.

"If you asked Taylor Hall if we should have pulled the goalie he would say we should have, because it was the right decision."

It doesn't bode well for the team when the teams best player breaks his stick over his knee and skates to the bench and says out loud...
"why did we pull the ****ing goalie?"

The players are starting to vocalize their disgust with the management on this team. How bad does this have to get before it gets turned around.

"We coach to win the game."

He actually said that with a straight face.

What a goof.

Does Renney know the Oilers were down 3 goals? Why didn't he pull Dubnyk again when they were down 6-2? Gotta coach to win those games!
