Craig MacTavish is the new Oilers GM and 5th GM in Oilers history
Steve Tambellini has been fired
Scott Howson has taken MacT's position as Senior Vice President of Hockey Operations
Kevin Lowe is still Kevin Lowe
I don't think Mac will be a bad GM at all but as I've said before I'm pissed off Lowe got to make the hire. He should be gone along with Tambellini. It bothers me a guy like that, who is responsible for most of what has happened since 2006 is still here firing people around him and not taking any accountability.
Honestly, if you looked through here, the tone would be that Tambo got an extension or something.
Because people can see what happened here, Lowe decided to save his own bacon. Interesting timing with only a few games left in the season. I think Lowe could feel a rope around his own head. Puts Katz in a bad spot if he had intentions of cleaning house.
Call a spade a spade. Lowe is running this club into the ground.
Don't forget the subtle jabs Tencer has taken at Tambo for not being aggressive enough. That's how this works. You buttkiss one guy when he's there, then throw him under the bus the minute he gets fired. Then you begin with sucking up to the new guy.
