Nation Talks: Bobby Nicholson Presser

Oilers CEO Bob Nicholson had a press conference today. Well by it’s very definition it was a press conference. I am not sure coming out and saying one whole line about how Peter Chiarelli will remain the GM and President of Hockey Operations with the Edmonton Oilers, constitutes a thing that people would have taken a break from their days to listen to. People like our very own BaggedMilk who live-tweeted the “event” for ON, as well as writing a recap of it. Give it a read over here first, if you haven’t yet.

Like that piece from BM, the boys were all fired up when Bob thought it wise to come out and A) support the GM that oversaw a team with the Art Ross winner, Connor McDavid on it, fail and B) not really give a reason as to why he decided to do so.

    Nicholson is one gutless turd. It does show the Oilers top man doesn’t give a crap about the “fan experience” in Edmonton. This shows the season ticket buyer how little they are valued. What unbelievable corporate arrogance. The only honest post-season commenter from the team was from a guy who may well be fired.
