    that Arcobello played the xylophone instead of the harpsichord. Completely un-necessary.

    yup I'm assuming for sure. regardless of whether he may have tried back then or not, it doesn't make telling the media about it now the right thing to do, or in his own best interests. It isn't helping Ference at all, just makes it look like a boatload of sour grapes.

    Well that I can't argue with really. If what they do in their private lives starts to affect their on ice production then yes criticisms can be made. In Ference's case though if he had a problem with it then he should have dealt with it then and with those involved, not 5 years later to the media.

    where did I say any of what you are accusing me of here? I said everything that Ference accuses this organization of is probably true. But none of that is why Ference failed here. Ference failed in Edmtonton because of Ference, not because his team mates went out for drinks after losing. Besides, neither he nor we have any right to diss his team for what they do in their private time. He was disinterested in this team when he played here, it's rather rich that he thinks he can berate them after he's gone, especially when they played with more heart on this team than he did, despite going for drinks after a game.

    a huge part of why ference didn't work in Edmonton was because he left his heart in Boston. In fact he lost it before he tenure ended in Boston. What was his last season there, like 40 games and 10 points or something like that? When he signed here and got overpayed they expected him to perform up to his payscale, which he both could not do and did not want to do. He promised us a package player that would deliver work ethic, heart, tenacity, and a never quit attitude. What he didn't tell us was that his never quit attitude was because he never started in the first place. Then when the Oilers realized he would never be worth his contract or contribute in any meaningful way they replaced him and he then had a hissy fit over it. Is some of what he said true? Probably yes, but his spite comes more from his lack of performance and subsequent removal than it does how the rest of the organization behaved.

    Welcome Home! Coach Hitchcock

    Very interesting little short video here, "The Hitch Effect"... I said changing coaches wouldn't fix this team, turns out I may have been wrong. https://streamable.com/hi4wc

    don't get me wrong, so would I. I would like to see them go 0-82 every year for the rest of eternity. I'd like to see them never score again in fact. I detest that team with every fiber of my being and will detest them until I take my final breath. But that doesn't mean I can't be cordial with a Flame fan who is also cordial back. Went to a game in Calgary a couple years back wearing my Oil jerseys and everything, and my tickets put me right in the heart of Flamer territory. We went down 2 goals in the first minute of the game, and I thought it was going to be a very bad night. We came back and won the game 8-2. The Flames fans beside me were very nice, and we talked hockey all night long. It was awesome. The point is, we are all fans, that's it. Some of us are not good people, some of us are.

    Well that somebody would be wrong. I post there occasionally as well, and just like here if you are respectful and are not there to troll all is good. Just like here there is a lot of spite against our team there, as it should be, and just like here if you go on to talk hockey you will always get a pretty good discussion.

    Well maybe it's "keep your friends close but your enemies closer" lol! In all seriousness though CFAF and 420 both like to talk hockey, they know the game, and they are willing to come here into enemy territory and discuss without being antagonistic. You have to give them props for that.

    there was an obvious hook in the third when we had a power play that would have put us on a 5 on 3 advantage for a minute and a half that wasn't called, and Larsson got away with an obvious hook in the second, but other than that it was a pretty well officiated game. Tough to complain about it that's for sure.
