Love sturgeons. They look absolutely prehistoric. Never had the opportunity to even try for one. Hopefully some day.

If you had a choice, who would it be?

Karlsson, Weber, Doughty,Keith, Subban,  other?

Oilers Discussion / Oilers drop Oklahoma City Barons Affiliation
« Last post by lennon on December 18, 2014, 09:18:22 AM »
The Edmonton Oilers announced today they are ending affiliation with Prodigal, operators of the Oilers’ American Hockey League (AHL) affiliate, the Oklahoma City Barons at the end of the 2014-15 season.

The mutual decision between the Oilers and Prodigal comes after considerable negotiations on an affiliation extension agreement were unsuccessful.

“The players, coaches and fans of the OKC Barons have been outstanding partners to our organization as our development team affiliate. We have enjoyed a solid working relationship with the City of Oklahoma City as well as with Prodigal, the Barons’ management company, throughout the team’s five years,” said Oilers Entertainment Group President & COO Patrick LaForge. “The decision to move on from Oklahoma City, although not easy, will open new opportunities for the Oilers organization and our AHL business.”

“We want to thank Bob Funk Jr. and his team at Prodigal for their partnership in bringing professional hockey to Oklahoma City.”

The Edmonton Oilers AHL development system has been located in Oklahoma City since the 2010-11 AHL season.

The first game of a three game road trip.

Will the Oilers turn it around before another goalie coach falls?

Are the Stars off limits for the Oilers?

Oilers Discussion / Renney says he was fired by the Oilers because of his ‘values’
« Last post by lennon on October 21, 2014, 02:18:59 PM »
Tom Renney coached the Edmonton Oilers for two seasons, from 2010-12. He didn’t lead the team to the playoffs in either, and was fired (eventually) in May of 2012.

Now the president of Hockey Canada, Renney had a rather interesting thing to say to La Presse newspaper about the Oilers’ decision to let him go.

“I once lost a job because of my values,” Renney said (as translated by @ChristoYoung). “In Edmonton, I was asked to give more playing time to more young players who’d had an operation to play. I reduced their playing time. But we had to play them, because they were really good and we were selling hope. But I acted according to my conscience.”

Taylor Hall, the first overall draft pick in 2010, had shoulder surgery in March of 2012.

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, the first overall pick in 2011, had issues with his shoulder “for a couple of years” before having surgery in April of 2013.

Jordan Eberle and Sam Gagner were other young, hope-inspiring players who missed good chunks of time with injuries while Renney was coach.

Renney was replaced as coach by Ralph Krueger, who lasted just one season before being fired and replaced by Dallas Eakins.
