We almost died laughing when we ran into an office here at NationHQ and told everyone in a really excited voice "Kevin Lowe just fired a Head Coach under his direction" and watched their eyes light up with glee and later dislodge from their sockets when they read that it was Jeff Truitt not MacT. That's gold.

Some of you may have read my article yesterday, which made the case for a coaching change in Springfield. Today, the Oilers have announced that Jeff Truitt has been relieved of his duties and that he will be replaced by professional scout Rob Daum for the remainder of the season.

Tim Sestito is not a real prospect. He’s an offensive black hole (in his finest junior season he managed 32 points), has grit but not size and went undrafted. Still, he’s a player that the Oilers have doggedly kept on their radar screen.

The Oilers have two minor-league affiliates: the Stockton Thunder of the ECHL, and the Springfield Falcons of the AHL. Back at the end of December, both teams were struggling; the Falcons had lost six games in a row, while the Thunder had lost three games in three nights and were winless in five games.
