Anton Lander (wearing the "C" in photo by Rob Ferguson) was recalled to the Edmonton Oilers today. Again. There's a difference this time, though. Anton Lander got the call to play for coach Todd Nelson in Edmonton and that could make all the difference.

It’s a lot of fun watching Craig MacTavish behind the Oilers’ bench. The man can flat-out coach and honestly this would probably be a better organization if he were in that role full-time and somebody else were pulling the strings from the general manager’s office.
But it’s also interesting to watch the general manager behind the bench, because every assignment he makes says something about how the Oilers’ top decision maker sees his team. What he did with his centres against San Jose on Thursday is fascinating.

Todd Nelson has only been behind the bench for two games, so it's too early to say if he will make a difference long term or not, but his presence has made one noticeable difference.

Reclusive Edmonton Oilers owner Daryl Katz held a private press conference for certain members of the media, and JSBM were there to cover it all for Oilersnation! You'll never believe what he said!
