Bylsma is definitely a possibility. A lot of talk about Dave Tippet. I'm not sure about him. I don't know why. As you mention here and others mentioned above, I do think he goes with a younger guy. Todd Nelson circling back?

Heard this from my son today ó I asked if we had to toss in a bag of practice pucks ó his response ó No Kevin Lowe is still with the Oilers. So part way there. See what happens with KL as he is personal friend of the owner.

MacTavish was a good coach, but management wasn't his forte. He will do well in the proper position once again.

Agreed he was a great coach! I also believe he had a great influence on decisions made by Chia!

I sure hope so. Lots of free tickets if it happens.

That's the only way I'll attend an Oilers game.

Bench boss isnít a wow factor.
Wow factors are player/contract changes to come.
Jesus could be the new coach but the end result would be the same.

Because they have been hiring a lot of coaches in the last 8 years. Itís not new..

HUH alright, tough crowd. Seems like a pretty significant position filled to me but alright. Will hold off on any more Oiler chat until you guys cash in on your shinny new LOTO won draft pick I guess..

https://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/nhl/...KMJoWKLVH-NEfE

How about this one?? No? need to hold off till the draft?? OK carry on..

General managers and coaches donít score goals defend or stop the puck. McLellan and Hitch are excellent coaches. Chia was a pizz poor hire. Coaches between MacTavish and McLellan were mediocre.

I want to see the team in October. What KH does this summer and at the draft.

The best part of all of this is that ownership admitted he is responsible for where the team currently sits. Heís given KH full autonomy to Maye his team better and do whatever they is needed to get to the playoffs. Tippet is part of that process.

The past 2 coaches were STELLAR pedigree, it's not a coaching issue, it's the total LACK OF HEART in that dressing room

The moves are significant, like them or not. As others have said, it's mostly what's put on the ice that will make a difference. So we wait.

Don't let the absence of chatter tell you that we don't care. We've just seen a lot, heard a lot. Besides, fishing is really heating up. We've got stuff to do.
