Also seeing Nicholson speak to the season ticket holders reminds me of seeing a manager speaking to their employees while the company is going through a big restructuring and layoffs. Full on nervous of the reaction and wanting to run away but knows he must try his best to fake it and put lip stick on that pig.

The posters are under the assumption that nobody would be important enough for Stauffer to take a call during his show unless it was Darryl Katz and the belief is that he was listening and called in to tell them to lay off. Normally I would be pretty skeptical but we all know the Oilers run the media in Edmonton so it's believable.
Yeah, was reading that dialogue. I tend to believe given the clown show that is the Oilers.

Prior to the call, they were absolutely blasting Koskinen and the signing, calling him a 1 million dollar 2 dollar max goalie. Larsson and Hall trade, Stauffer blasting Marc on his writings. Basically how you need to sign a proper 4 million + goalie just to make up for how bad Koskinen is. Said the 'decision makers' decided to pass on Luke Philp. sure enough 10 minutes later, "hey Darryl"
That is truly amazing. Wow. But then again, not surprised. This is an organization that created a bunch of shill accounts on HF a couple years ago and didn't even try to mask their attempt to dissuade unpopular opinions about Lowe. Then magically the mods deleted all threads and posts that called them out, and banned anyone who brought it up or even attempted to discuss what had happened.

To say you need to take a call that's more important then your live on-air broadcast, of course is Katz. Only the owner would have the ability to call in on a live air broadcast and have the guy who is literally talking, be taken off the air at that moment and scolded.

It's beautiful to witness this as a Calgary fan.

The only reason that I have some manner of disbelief is that I don't think Darryl Katz is the type of person to let underlings call him by his first name.

You need a small table in that corner with a jar of cash on it as a placeholder until then.

Here's good ol' Spec:

Off-season blueprint for Bob Nicholson and the Edmonton Oilers

https://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/nhl/...monton-oilers/

Quote:
Since the National Hockey League took control of the Stanley Cup, only two teams have missed the playoffs 12 times in a 13-season span: they are the Detroit Red Wings (1970-71 to 1982-83) and the New Jersey Devils (1974-75 to 1986-87).

The Edmonton Oilers will join that elite club when this season ends, as would the Carolina Hurricanes if they were to somehow blow a four-point bulge with 10 games to play and miss the playoffs in the East. But here’s the kicker:

No team has ever missed the playoffs 13 times in a 14-season span. Not in the history of the NHL. The Oilers would become the first club to do so if they fail to qualify again next season.

All of that while selecting first overall four times during their window of dysfunction.

Avoiding that dubious distinction falls on Oilers CEO Bob Nicholson, who has fired both a general manager (Peter Chiarelli) and a head coach (Todd McLellan) this season, after cleaning out his assistant coaching staff the previous summer.
Quote:
Buy out Milan Lucic?
Maybe.

We’d suggest a buy-out unconditionally, but there is very little to gain because of the way failed GM Chiarelli made the deal. It was Chiarelli’s first July 1 contract, and it is a disaster. Mikko Koskinen at $4.5 million per season was Chiarelli’s final contract.

Lucic asked for a trade last summer. If he asks for one again at the exit meetings, then buy him out and wave goodbye.

If he promises to spend the summer with a skills coach, shed as much weight as possible (he’s always been in great shape) and shows me that he wants to succeed in Edmonton, then give him the chance. Because a buy-out saves you about $1.4 million per season, which buys you a decent fourth-line winger.

Which Lucic already is.

One of many who is too boring; thinks that there should be rules regarding grammar in custom user titles, and also makes moderators wonder if there is a charachter limit here. I mean come on- you would think that would be a limitation in the software

Really working hard to convince people that Koskinen's contract was anything but a group decision, eh?

I’d bet any amount of money that Lucic’s was as well.
