Maybe, but it clearly has not worked. This experiment should be concluded. Get a real NHL coach here. We have not had on for years. Not a quality coach.

LOL no doubt. Could it be the system or as one Western Conference scout succinctly put it, no one else is playing it.

Not to defend him or anything, but Oil Change is produced by people associated with the Oilers...

A quality coach would insist upon hiring his own assistants, just like a quality GM would insist upon full autonomy. This is the reason we don't have either of those people here.

Renny is light-years better than Ralph...the improvements from 10-11 to 11-12 shows the proof

but Lindy Ruff is sitting there dying to coach...first thing I do if I'm MacT is can Krueger and his assistants

and bring a vet NHL coach with a wealth of experience

Might be able to get Mike Babcock this summer. Dunno if he'd come here without big changes though. Kreuger is going to get until the end of the year and be canned.

Ousted, experienced coaches often thrive elsewhere. MacTavish needs to contact Lindy Ruff immediately after the season.

That would get Smyth off the ice...

no other way for that to happen apparently...

10 points back of the Blue Jackets. Wow.

I figured we'd be about 5-7 points back by the end of the season but to be 10 points down is unacceptable. I think that gives us less points then last year over a full season The only thing holding us out of 1st overall is that other teams have gotten worse not that we've gotten better.

Edit: Last year we finished 21 points out of the playoffs. If we only win 1 game of the 4 remaining we'll statistically be worst then last year. The good news is no matter what we can't be as bad as the 2010-11 Oilers.

Sweet. We get to draft another young player that can't help a team for 2-3 years. Life is great.

It's amazing how one team can have so many garbage players and a garbage coach.

Is regression like this normal in a "rebuild"?

Is Babcock in danger of losing his job if they miss the playoffs?
If that is the case, Babcock, Ruff and potentially Laviolette who apparently is in trouble in Philly will be available. MacT would be stupid to keep Krueger with coaching behemoths like those being potentially available.
Lets hope that the team continues to look listless, goes into the offseason having lost 12 of 13 and forces MacT's hand to make coaching changes. Probably wishful thinking but it's our only hope.

No, which is why Tambo is gone.
