All the best to oates.in.our nations capital. Like everyone else, I'm interested to see who joins the staff in his place. Will.Lou pull.someone outta left field like.he did when he brought in Oates or he scoops.up.someone everyone knows.is out.there???
Another way to look at this - Unlike years past when assistants were groomed to replace head coaches with the revolving door, Adam Oates left here. That's good - it shows that everyone knows/thinks Pete's here to stay.

He's a great coach. Not another Maclean, and he'll do well with what he's been given in Washington. The guy also was responsible for the great powerplay in the playoffs that everyone forgets because of the LA series.
