Shallow? You Betcha.

I have no doubt that Pat Quinn will be a breath of fresh air to the Edmonton Oilers coaching staff but let’s face it, Renney would have been a better choice as far as the Hot-O-Meter is concerned. Come on, admit it. You know I’m right and I know you’ve thought the same thing.

Pat Quinn is reminiscent of an old man living in my neighborhood growing up. He was bitter, tired and generally pissed off at the world. When passing him, being the polite and charming child I was, I would often say hi to this anger-ridden old fart only to be faced with a bark of “It’s not hi, it’s hello. Damn kids… mumble mumble… gurgle… burp”. So forgive me if I’m already off to a bad start with Mr. Quinn. Perhaps some therapy provided by OilersNation would help me through my troubled past.

Tom Renney! *swoon* Now here’s a man with the face for professional sports. I could watch many an interview with this guy. He’s dashing, debonair, and radiant with charisma. Plus, once retired, I would feel confident buying a used car from him. A trusting face goes a long way. Just look at Ted Bundy.

Kelly “The Hills Have Eyes” Buchberger will still be on as assisting coach so clearly he’s doing something right but I can’t imagine it has much to do with his mug. That’s all I have to say about that.

Let’s just hope that with this new addition of experience that we all get what we want; a nice shiny cup to bring home next year.

    Good gravy not a load of good humor up in this beyaach.

    Amber your "hills have eyes" comment is golden. When a young Wanye was about 14 I saw Buchberger on the driving range wearing a touque made of medical bandage complete with blood spots.

    Being a concerned Oilers fan I bravely walked right up to him and asked (in a voice we now acknowledge was an overly concerned) "Are you OK Mr. Buchberger?"

    Buchberger looked over at me and laughed "oh what this?" and pointed to his head. "These are hairplugs kid nothing to worry about" and he and three other fellows laughed heartily at my concern.

    I learned three things that day:
    1. 14 year old Oiler fans are an excitable lot
    2. Kelly Buchberger talking to you in front of other kids your age make you very cool very fast
    3. You can regrow hair using plugs.

    @Amber haters

    Really?

    Wow i'm sorry if i see something thats written by You again i'm moving along. Everyone has their opinion but your idiotic. How on Gods green earth you are aloud to post things on this web site is beyond me. You are No Where Near the same class as Robin or Gretz or even the self centered Gregor so get outta here and go write for the flamers site.

    Your first mistake was coming here looking for insightful commentary. Your second mistake was failing to recognize tongue in cheek. Let's hope you don't repeat mistake #2 when you read this comment.

  • admiralmark

    Wow a sports article written by a female. Things really must be changing with women being so interested in sports now…That they will be writing insightful commentary on sports…..Apparently not. The last coach to guide the Oilers to a Stanley Cup was John Muckler. And Muckler was no looker. Ask me if i care??

    Wow, tough crowd. I’ll reserve any judgement until I see how the hockey team plays this upcoming season, and won’t throw much opinions and judgements around just to get attention when we won’t be able to tell anything until next October.

    Why will it take you until October to decide who's the better looking coach?

  • Death Metal Nightmare

    you automatically lose because Quinn bringing up in the presser that he was shredding skateboards back in the early 60s trumps anything "i have women hands" Renney ever did. plus he elbowed Bobby Orr in the face. in the words of Ken Reid, OLD MAN POWER

    So if the Old guy is Quinn, who is the annoying kid in the boyscout Uni? Renney?

    No, I believe its Sam Gagner, trying to get the attention of Mr. Quinn. 🙂

    Amber,

    Just you wait! Buckey is going to get Quinn & Renney to buy a lifetime membership at "Tan – A – Lot," and you will be swooning over the Bronze Trio all winter!

    Amber, I showed this to my wife, and while she agrees with you, she just cannot get over the hurt from the loss of her Dreamboat (and biggest reason this particular American gal watches hockey), Mr. Craig MacTavish.

    She feels it'll come down to his first choice in a suit and tie. If Renney pulls it off, she'll be on board. Me? I'm trying hard not to participate in the conversation.

    Girls are funny.

    You know, the talk about Pat Quinn as the old man in the neighbourhood makes me want to go see the new Pixar movie "Up". So if the Old guy is Quinn, who is the annoying kid in the boyscout Uni? Renney?
