probably to put his full support behind Tambo

"still a work in progress"
"still lots of work to do"
"Tambo is a great GM"

CHED is carrying the presser at 10:30 according to Tencer.

CHED wouldn't carry it unless it was big news... right?

This.

However, isn't the "vote of confidence" the dreaded "kiss of death"?

Lowe doesn't do pressers unless it's big news...but big news could just be putting support behind management and coaching.

Yup. The criticisms have been mounting over the past week and change. This is just an attempt to quell the fire. A pathetic attempt, but an attempt.

Tambo is fired, replaced by MacT.

In all seriousness, probably just a state of the team address saying that everything is on the right track (meaningful games in April), have patience, we have faith in the GM and the coaches. Blah Blah Blah.
Or maybe it's about the World Championships or something like that?

There is a teeny tiny part of me that is thinking that somebody is being fired or stepping down but that's the teeny tiny part of me that thought the Oilers could make the playoffs after the 5 game winning streak so there you go.

"The Edmonton Oilers have decided to promote Tambo to asst of Hockey Ops and promote Scott Howson to GM".

"Why yes I will work Howson as a puppet like I have been with Tambo"

"We have decided to change our 3 approval approach to a 4 approval approach now including Scott"

"redundant you say? why yes I agree, good thing Katz is too stupid to see what is going on hey?"

I'll be pissed if Tambo is fired and no one else is changed. The guys on the team 1260 hit the nail on the head. Our pro scouts have no idea what they are doing. Tambo is a rookie GM that relies on getting the right information from these guys and the continue to trade for damaged goods. I mean look at the list:

Pitkanen, Cole, Osullivan, Belanger, Eager, Hordichuck, Schultz, Khabby, etc. They were in theory supposed to fill roles but none of them were a scouted properly.

sources say there will be plenty of speculation leading up until 10:30.

It's either something Oilers related that is "positive", something Oilers related that is "Disasterous" or Something Hockey Canada Related.

There seems to be some momentum building amongst the media that Tambo is about to fall on the sword for the Oilers' failures.
