Scott Howson spent five years and eight months as General Manager of the Columbus Blue Jackets, before being fired in February, and on Monday he officially returned to the Oilers as VP of Hockey Operations. What has he learned since leaving Edmonton? What will he bring to the organization?
After drawing some fire for heated comments made during the announcement of Criag MacTavish as general manager of the Oilers, club president Kevin Lowe issued a statement on Tuesday to clarify his remarks.
The Oilers have lost six straight games. Tuesday night’s contest against Minnesota was the first time they managed to score more than a single goal during a game in that span. They have been out-shot and out-chanced in all six contests. Despite that, they’re a better team than six consecutive losses would indicate.
With a new GM on the hot seat, you know this Edmonton Oiler roster will not stay the same. Who goes? Hall? Uh, no. Ebs? Get real. The Nuge? Sure–center’s a strong spot on the roster—NOT! Not Hall, not Nuge, not Ebs not Schultz not……..YAK CITY?
