Oilers' upper management

Edmonton fans needs to search for the biggest paper bag they can find and crap inside it. Light it on fire and leave it on Katz' doorstep. Leave a letter on his marble pillar outside his door. Then run away.

Jokes aside; Katz needs to at least act like he cares about his hobby that Edmonton fans cherish so much. Quit playing with it and start treating it like its part of your drug empire. I highly doubt he keeps a CEO under Rexal as incompetent as Lowe and the rest of the Old Boys Club in the Oilers organization.

So here comes the poll.

Agreed, if you mean fire Lowe and the assistant coaches. I'd give MacT and Eakins at second full year. The head coaching carousel really needs to stop.

Scorched earth. Toast everybody and hire whoever's out there with actual experience. As wretched as Lowe's record is, MacTavish's immediately established tendency to think he's outsmarting the rest of the league by going off the board (Belov, Joensuu, Grebeshkov and, arguably, Eakins) doesn't bode well for the team's&s future

Keep Howson and dump Lowe, MacT, Buchberger and Smith. Hire replacements and then let the new GM/President decide if the rest of the OBC are doing a decent job or if they need the boot.

Keep MacT and Eakins (as well as Howson) and lose the rest, but let Eakins and MacT make a decision on assistant coaches. After that the "new Lowe" can assess following two seasons of Eakins and MacT if they should go too.

By then it could be too late. Fan apathy, stars wanting out, etc. I am sick and tired of taking time to assess the situation, it's painfully obvious to anyone with a clue, we need bigger bodies that can win battles, go to the trenches and bang bodies to compliment our small skilled guys.

Fire Lowe. Get rid of the entire coaching and scouting staff. Give MacT another year. Hire Laviolette.

Fire everybody who is anybody and then somebody else too. In the place of a Dark Lord you would have a Queen! Not dark but beautiful and terrible as the Morn! Treacherous as the Seas! Stronger than the foundations of the Earth! All shall love me and despair!

Yes, hiring unqualified people due to personal relationships has its problems. This franchise is a show of it to the extreme.

Have everybody involved switch positions for next season. Horcoff for coach. MacT as an assistant. Lowe T head scout. Smith and Buch as assistant GMs. Katz's son as GM.

Why do we even bother with a amateur scouting staff if in the end it's Katz who's dictating which player we draft. That's if the rumours are true of course.

bring in a legit experienced president and let him make personnel decisions (GM, coaches, scouts) the same way Burke is doing it in Calgary.

edit - should have just quoted this dude

Kevin Lowe, Buchy, Smith need to go. They need to look at their scouting staff as well.

The reality of the situation is as long as Katz owns and operates the team nothing will change. Anyone know a billionaire?

This isn't funny at all because it's likely with this bunch that it's been considered. They're always searching for the right combination with the parts they have.

If you don't fire them all they will always be here one way or another. Look at MacTavish and Howson. Get fired/leave for another organization, come back in a smaller role and get handed a huge position in less than a year.

Fire Lowe or just shoot him, replace with a real hockey manager, everything else will fall into place after that.
