It boils down to jealousy, honestly. As much as I like Hall he loathes the fact that one day in the not so distant future, Yakupov is going to be a better player than he is, way more talent and skills, he is making it abvious that he does not like Yak., sad really., but these are the Oilers
Bowman could go behind the bench. No coach is going to get these guys to compete harder or go in the corners.
He might help them play more with systems play.
You can't coach "dumb" sometimes
If Scotty ****ing Bowman coached this team, we would a playoff team. Your just sensationalizing things now, plus you admited you don't watch the games, so why your making any team analysis's makes no sense.
Sorry to burst your bubble, the fact of the matter is that Yakupov is a better all round hockey player than Hall and will likely have a better carreer in the NHL., either he'll prove that on this team, based on a level playing field, or gets moved out of this circus and proves it somewhere else.
If he isn't given the same opportunities, as the primmadonna kid, like we've already seen by either being scratched, or ice limited to 10.30 minutes, with no PP time, given the cold shoulder from team mates, hope fully he goes elsewhere, Hallsy still has Eberle and Gagner to party with
