    Similar things were said of Pierre Turgeon when he was hired.
    This is Blake's second attempt.
    Don't get too excited yet.

I'm all for this hire in effort to elevate the offense.

    I too heard the Spittin Chicklets interview. His clientele is impressive! Of course, the armchair GM's of LGK know better though....
    Lol. So true.

    I wasn't sure exactly what to think but feeling better about the hire since most of the positive feedback comes from those who follow the analytics sites and hockey podcasts and most of the negative feedback comes from from the flippant and glib crowd (with the exception of KP who is in the thinking fan category).

    OK.

    We already have Oates.

    If we traded for Taylor Hall, we'd have ...

    Well, you know.



    But trading for Taylor Hall would cost us a big bunch of talent.

    I can't go for that.

    Ooof! This one is bad, really bad. Like lead balloon bad.




    (Not like in the past Hull didn't play on a line with Oates.)

    You might think it's a laugh, but Oates is going to give them some adult education. Right now it's just guessing games, but with some one on one attention, they may leave the past times behind. They're currently out of touch, but hopefully there's a lot of changes comin'. Otherwise it's just a missed opportunity.
