It's been building. Quietly. The "Craig MacTavish" rumblings in regard to an NHL coaching position have been building for the last several weeks.

Jonathan Huberdeau can play centre or wing and he's billed by amateur scouts as being a mix of grit and skill. He's also been hotter than a 3$ pistol with the Saint John Sea Dogs in the QMJHL playoffs. Think the Edmonton Oilers might want and need a player like that?
