We have seen Todd McLellan coaching the Oilers for their third season. Is he worth what the franchise has paid? Yes, they did well last year, but this year they are, dare I say, an embarrassment. Who do we attribute it to? Is it a lack of guiding and managing by the coach or an unwillingness to listen. I'm trying to rationalize what has happened to the team this year and I keep coming back to poor coaching technique. I do not think he is worth what he is being paid. Where is the guidance for these kids?
Hello my fellow Oilers fans! There is a small online/live auction going on at Lethbridge Auction Depot with a decent amount of autographed Oilers/NHL memorabilia. Yes, it is my stuff at this auction -- but I want it to go to real fans! I don't want it to get into the hands of people who just want to mark it up to take advantage of Oilers fans' loyalty. The auction is online, with a final live-auction in April in Lethbridge (where all the memorabilia can be viewed). I've made the initial bids cheap because I don't have room to store everything and need to liquidate. I want a real fan to get this stuff! Not some scalper-type person who will later rip off a real fan.
I've done some reading and it seems everyone has their opinion about Connor McDavid and his chances of winning the Calder Trophy this year. Some rule him out completely, while others give unrealistic expectation on what he has to do like score at a pace of 3-4ppg for the remaining 40. This is my opinion. Connor can no longer be a runaway contender for the trophy but I believe he can get himself into contention by doing three things when he gets back. 1: He has to maintain a 1 ppg average for the remainder of the season. If he could be closer to the 2 ppg average would help him greatly. 2: He has to show how much he means to this team. In the remaining games he needs to show his leadership and help this team climb the standings. Not necessarily into a playoff position but out of the basement of the league and into a middle of the pack. The closer to a playoff position we get, the better his chances are of winning the Calder. Obviously this will take a team effort, but if McDavid rises from this injury and leads this team, I believe the rest of the Oilers will follow his lead. 3: Stay healthy. If Connor is to have any chance at all he will need to stay healthy and on his game for the remainder of the season. I'd like to hear what Oiler Nation has to say about this. Who do you think will win this year if not Connor?
