Season Review by HF's Kady Hobbins

http://thefarmclub.net/2013/05/15/ed...-season-recap/

If you guys can add a piece or two on the back end and get a healthy year from the forwards, a big jump could be in store.

Still not sold on Koach's passive coaching.

How in the sweet hell does a team with "D" rated defense and "C+" rated offense have "B-" rated coaching?

Is Kady Hobbins a cousin to Gus Chiggins?

Coaching was way over rated, should be a "C" at best, but other than that a pretty good assessment. Would of been nice to rate management, but we all know they would get an "F" for fired.

Probably because the personnel the coach had to work with is either too young and inexperienced(ie, mistake prone), or declining and ineffective. It was an identical roster to the one that finished second worst in the league last year, with the only changes made of the type that typically don't greatly improve a team(bottom 6 defenseman, 2 rookies).

The areas you'd really expect coaching and tactics to play a major role have all been very good otherwise(Special teams).

Useless article.

The shortened 2012-13 season was Ralph Krueger’s debut as an NHL head coach and he had his work cut out for him with the injury-plagued, hot and cold Oilers team.

Yeah, we sure were injury plagued. Too bad our top 6 played all but 21 games and our top 4 defenseman didn't miss a game. But damn, if only Belanger stayed healthy... what could have been...

Closing this. OP doesn't appear to be following the rules of the HFboards partner program.
