So there is talk of firing Hitch and bringing up Gully for a "new coach bounce".
Now I'm thinking, hey why not change coaches every 10 games instead of every year.

They should do rotating Player-Coach of the Week.

Statistical proof of E=NG. Article on TSN about the Oilers squandering McDavid's career.

https://www.tsn.ca/the-oilers-are-sq...ence-1.1255904

Gems include:
"It [high draft picks and lots of cap space] should have been the perfect recipe to find complementary players to build around McDavid for years..." The quote is in comparison to how Pittsburgh built around Crosby.

"Instead, the Oilers have been a nightmare of epic proportions when McDavid isn’t on the ice... It’s the type of data that makes you check, and check again, and then check a third time just to make sure you didn’t screw something up. But yes, it is absolutely that bad."

"Just as a point of reference [43% goal% for Oilers without McDavid], the worst team by Goal% over the last four years are the Buffalo Sabres [44%], who actively tanked a couple of those seasons and just recently returned to a brand of semi-competitive hockey."

His data over the last four years: Blue shows shot advantage with McDavid on, Orange when he is off


Goal% with McDavid on and off

Well Chia said he consulted McLottery if it was Ok to trade for Manning, so make McDavid player-coach-GM.

It's hilarious that the 50-game goal% orange and blue graphs looks like they are actually gonna cross pretty soon. Not only are they horrible without McDavid thus squandering his carreer, they are also slowly but steadily pulling him down to their level.

Just when you think the oilers cant get any worse or more embarrassing, they get worse and more embarrassing.

What a franchise. Gift that keeps on giving, as a Flames fan.

Looking at his goal graph his dominance has been in decline for over 2 years. You can actaully see fatigue in that graph as he starts the Sean sting then fades away.

Is his voice muffled? I always wondered what he sounded like when he talks out of his ass.

"it", was the system Hitchcock was referred to?

Not the will to win? Dig in? Face adversity? Play as a team? Etc etc

Hitch walking back his tough comments is more of the same from Edmonton. Instead of listening, they must have had a meeting with him on how his comments were unacceptable

The answer is in the room. Stop criticizing it, it's a great team Hitch.

Would you mind asking if his friends and family are proud or ashamed of the hackey manipulated journalism he shovels out daily?

Wow. He thinks Dougie and Boston's 7th for Benning, Manning and a 6th. That's...creative.

what, a 6th overall? If I'm Carolina I still wouldn't do that because Benning and Manning are terrible.

If I'm Carolina, I ask for Nugent-Hopkins +.

That's so brutal for Hamilton. Benning and Manning are utter garbage.



Change the Oilers 6th to their first unprotected and its a maybe.

That would be a ###### thing to say, but I wouldn’t be above asking what on earth happened to the Oilers after his epic editorial pronouncing them the World BOA Champions. Spector’s 2017 material has not aged well.
