Tom Renney will be named Hockey Canada president and CEO, a source tells The Canadian Press.

Renney, who previously was an associate coach on Mike Babcock's staff with the Detroit Red Wings, will replace Bob Nicholson, who resigned earlier this year.

The announcement is expected to take place Tuesday afternoon in Calgary.

Renney is a well-respected hockey person with 17 years of coaching experience in the NHL, WHL and internationally. He spent the past two seasons with the Red Wings.

Before that, Renney was head coach of the Edmonton Oilers, New York Rangers and Vancouver Canucks. The 59-year-old Cranbook, B.C., native served as head coach of Team Canada for two years, including the 1994 Olympics, after two seasons behind the bench of the WHL's Kamloops Blazers.

Renney also served as Rangers' director of player personnel and vice president of player development.

His history with Hockey Canada is a long one. In addition to winning a silver medal at the 1994 Olympics, Renney has coached Canada in 10 world championships and also served as vice president of hockey operations in 1998 and 1999.

Former Colorado head coach and recent Pittsburgh assistant Tony Granato will replace Renney in Detroit, according to multiple reports.

Hockey Canada's board of directors began its confidential search for Nicholson's replacement in April with the expectation of making a hire by the end of July.

In June, Nicholson was named vice chairman of Oilers Entertainment Group in Edmonton. He maintained his position as vice president of the International Ice Hockey Federation.

The day he resigned, Nicholson said he hoped his successor cared about the game.

"Make sure that you're in Flin Flon and all the small (towns with) minor hockey across the country," Nicholson said April 4. "Talk about sledge hockey, talk about women's hockey. The other stuff'll come. The NHL, the Canadian Hockey League, we have good partnerships there and it'll continue to be strong."

Oilers Discussion / Why would the Oilers move Petry
« on: July 05, 2014, 04:22:36 AM »
There is so much talk out there about moving Petry for a 2C, I guess it depends on what 2 C we can get. I just don't see why we would trade our best dman with just over 200 games experience who still has a ton of potential and I believe coach Ramsay will help him progress a lot this year.

If we get rid of Petry it means we won't have a player on our team that was drafted past the first round since 2006. We will own that massive honour all to ourselves, no other team in the NHL can brag of such a thing, our scouting staff is amazing.

I really don't mind giving Arco and or Lander a look for 10 games at 2C and who knows Draisaitl may knock our socks off right out of the shoot, it can happen.

The Preds let him walk as a UFA, what is the deal with this guy? It seems he was looking pretty good a few years back, I wonder what his issues are, he certainly has an offensive upside. I wonder if its just some maturity or party issue or something. Seems strange he dropped off so bad.

Oilers Discussion / Canucks get Dorsett for 3rd round pick

I am not sure why we didn't go after this guy, it seems this might be a guy we could really use on our 3rd - 4th line.

Around the NHL / P.K. Subban
« on: May 07, 2014, 11:17:36 PM »
There is no question at this time that Subban is the best dman in the NHL, he is making a way bigger difference for his team than Chara is. You could bring Doughty in the conversation but Subban is killing it right now on both sides of the puck.

His new contract will probably be in that 7.5 - 8 million mark, and he deserves it.

Oilers Discussion / Arcobello signs 1 year extension
« on: May 05, 2014, 08:48:26 PM »
Looks like a one way 600k contract.


The Edmonton Oilers agreed to terms with centre Mark Arcobello on a one-year contract extension Monday.

The 25-year-old native of Milford, Conn., has 18 points in 41 games this season.

The five-foot-eight 166-pound centre also has 28 points (10-18) in 15 games with AHL Oklahoma City. Arcobello is the Barons' all-time leader in goals (60), assists (101), points (161) and playoff points (35).

Also Monday, the Oilers recalled forward Will Acton from the Barons on an emergency recall basis. He has three points (2-1) in 23 games with Edmonton this season.

Around the NHL / Hawks beat Blues and get to round 2

Toews is the best player in the game right now, he wills himself to win, and leads his team to victories.

Blues repeat last years performance. I think Hitchcock had the blues playing at their best all year, they didn't have another gear. Can we say Miller time.

Put yourself in the GM chair / Second Line
« on: April 15, 2014, 12:10:49 AM »
MacTavish talked of getting us a second line and he is correct to see that. I really don't think Yakupov is a fit or is he ever going to be that sniper everyone hyped him to be. I like Perron staying on the second line. I am afraid its time for Gagner to go.

I would go after Evander Kane, maybe just maybe the jets would take Yakupov and a little sweetener. I think the draft this year will give us a great 2nd line centre, probably Draisaitl or Bennet. I think Kane and Perron could make it work with a  rookie.

I would think we can get some really  good 3rd-2nd line depth for Gagner, probably get some D help in FA.

Oilers Discussion / Eakins must go
« on: March 23, 2014, 01:58:16 PM »
Ok, its time for this poser to go back to Toronto where the media can continue to overhype everything Toronto. The display Eakins put on last night after getting a bit of water sprinkled on him was embarrassing to the team, fans and fellow coaches, he apparently thinks he is the show and played for the cameras I suppose.

I have seen many hockey players do things in frustration on the bench (Alfie breaking stick like mad man on bench) comes to mind, and there are countless examples, I have never seen a coach react that way, along with his sidekick gum chewers. Can anyone imagine Renney, Kreuger, MacT or ANY coach doing what he did, throwing the towel at Hall and yapping at him in anger of getting his hair wet. I have seen coaches get hit with the puck, bleed all over their suit and not change it. This guy is an idiot of epic proportions and needs to leave town yesterday, and not because of this one incident, but because he has the team regressed in every category.

We have a good core, add some more support players, change 1-2 top 6 in trade and we will be just fine. It is not too late to change the head coach, assistant coaches, POHO and move on, I think MacT has actually done ok other than making the Eakins mistake.

If we continue down this current road of management and coaches, players will be wanting out next season, and who could blame them.

Apparently when you show emotion as a player its immature and needs to be tamped on, well I disagree, and it seemed Perron was siding with Hall. The only time I have seen Eakins show emotion is when his hair got wet.

Oilers Discussion / Lander & Klefbom
« on: March 08, 2014, 12:57:52 PM »
Lander and Klefbom get the call up. Rip it up fellas.

I hope Lander is not put on the fourth line, he won't succeed there.

Oilers Prospects and Drafts / Darnell Nurse

That was a nice segment on Oil Change about Nurse, very grounded kid.

OKC Barons / Roman Horak
« on: February 10, 2014, 01:23:20 AM »
He seems to have caught fire lately, got a hat trick, next game got OT winner. Horak now leads the team in goals.

Lander is doing very well too 34 points in 32 games.
