and Dave Tippet is our New Head Coach.

Recommended Posts

and the pattern continues.. this seems like its going ot be a Team Canada(worlds) Reunion tour from the mid to late 2000s.

bob nichols, dave tippet and ken holland.

im not stoaked on this hire just because this guy has done really nothing in the NHL by winning standards. but hey here we are.

 and the next thing im hearing is binging in some anthony mantha for RNH. are we really going to do lets bring the guys we know in routine again?

chia brought is brother to scout, lucic and spooner to destroy our cap.

 

and now its the old boys from team canada(worlds). cant say im really surprised about the hire. but i would love some better news like lucic being bought out or or mikko koskanen retiring lol.

i dont know about you guys but this is getting familiar again. like always i hope im wrong, about this.

The other side of the coin, for the sake of argument, is that some star players (e.g. Modano) have enjoyed career years under him. And other years, he squeezed more water out of rock rosters than could reasonably be expected.

I'm of the mind of giving it a real chance.

i hear hes a good guy. but i see too much of todd mclellan in this guy to be excited. hes never won a cup. can do good things but never win a cup with a good team, and with a bad team he does next to nothing.

players seem like him, so i dont know how far that will go with this team, who knows.

and to be fair Madano was madano beofre tippet join was his head coach. madano had a cup, was the captain. had steady 80 point season for about 6-7 years on a defense first system(which is saying a lot).

with tippet they never won a cup, madano did have his statistically best season with 85 points, but worst goal out put in 4-5 seasons, and then madano goes down hill big time and tippet does strip him of his captaincy. so i dont think as many people have had the greatest career under this guy.

 

and those dallas star teams were really good, they always had a good goalie, marty turco in his prime was good, jere lethonen was always a great 2 way player, madano, sergei zubov one of the best d men in the game, bredan morrow, and they were always killing us, they even had bill gerin and jsaon arnott. the roster was hands down his best roster he ever worked with in the NHL.

if you look at what he did with arizona, that more like us oilers now. he wasent able to do anything. this is why im skeptical about things. but yeah like you said give him his chance. i just want some better news.

Can say McD and Drai did the same under Hitch.

To me Tippett brings less than Hitch. Tippett may relate better to younger players, Hitch has won, and plenty.

They wanted to go into a new direction, better be the right choice. The above two players deserve the playoffs and a cup. Two top 5 players on the same team, they deserve more.

I like this signing, Tippett can bring some defensive structure and with Holland re-tooling everything this franchise has a chance to turn the corner. Time will tell.

What a bunch of hogwash.

Yawnee will probably join TM in LA, he is one of the best defensive specialists and also works well with young players. What can Tippett bring that betters what we had already.

We had lots of experienced in our coaches. Tippett brings a fresh mind, that's about it.

We were getting along too well so time to mix it up a bit (in a fun way)

Hogwash? Haha, if Yawney is so good how come our pk sucks? How come the only defenceman that took a step forward last year was Nurse? How come we couldn’t even make a pass out of our zone and constantly chip it off the glass for icings? Tippett will bring in his own assistants and thank god for that. GG and Yawney can hit the road.

Key injuries and half our players + replacement players are fringe players (they are not good enough).

Coaches can only work with what they got. Hitch must have used the word "passenger" 100 times this season.

The issue is the cap, thanks to PC. The saving grace is we finally have some prospects. Not Pulj or Yammo, but others instead.

‘Coaches can only work with what they got’ you say.

Ahhh, kind of like what Tippett had for a roster in Arizona. Let’s see what he can do with two of the best players in the game.

The don't DESERVE anything.  God I hope Mcd and Drai don't think this way.

Between them they make over a quarter million dollars PER GAME.  Think about that for a second.  If anyone deserves anything, its the fans that pay those ridiculous salaries.

No official announcement yet....we can only assume.

I'm waiting to see it on TSN or Sportsnet, it makes me nervous when we read it on the boards but it isn't officially reported yet. The same thing with Nygard, I havn't seen an "official" report yet.

I read that Jim Playfair will be added, Yawney will go to LA and Mark Lamb and Bob Boughner could be in the mix. Hope they officially announce something soon.

I read the same and ditto on the announcements. I'm surprised that with the SC final not starting until Monday I would have thought they would have announced something today not to interfere with the finals? And so we wait...

About 10 minutes after I posted, the Oilers site announced his signing. Thank you for the info but I did know by then. I had to go out or I probably would have posted the update myself. I would  rather have had our coach's announcement but one checkmark off the list is better than none.

Yeah, they said something about an announcement for Tuesday so as not to interfere with the finals. If it’s done like they say then just announce it already. Is this just another OEG failure or what?

All the speculation was that a Tippett signing would happen this week.  Suddenly, things have gotten quiet and no movement.

Did a deal fall through...or just a hiccup?

Has someone else appeared in the picture (I'm kinda betting it's Bob Hartley)?

Off-season melodrama....not as good as going to the games but way cheaper!

Who would want to coach for this disfuntional organization? Tippet has a better job in Seattle and will probably have a better team than this lacklustre team.

I remember not very long ago a bunch of posters saying the very same thing about us getting a new GM, now we have Holland.

Google Oilers sign Tippett, the Journal says it’s done, yet no announcement yet

Well - nothing has officially been announced so not sure how Leavins knows all this and a plugged in guy like Bob Mackenzie doesn't. According to Bob and hockey insiders there is no deal done yet and Holland is back in Detroit on his way to Buffalo for the scouting combine - so not sure how the deal will be announced - if there is a deal - on Tuesday if Holland is there. 

That being said, I'm sure this is just a forgone conclusion. But I highly doubt he's already been 'signed' with no official word as that contract has to be registers with the NHL offices when/where it becomes public knowledge. And since no one else has reported it, I have to believe there is nothing signed yet. Guess we'll see. 

Mark Connolly is now reporting he has signed as well. 

For those that don't like the hiring - well, I say give him a chance. And remember, I spouted off about how we should give PC a chance once the Hall Trade was made. But his first big trade was the Reinhart trade. which I also said to give him a chance on. Shows you what I know.
