This Woodcroft Guy

I liked Jay Woodcroft’s style from the moment he was introduced to assembled media as Dave Tippett’s replacement as head coach of the Edmonton Oilers. Standing, not sitting, at the podium in a power stance with his hands on his hips. I’m not sure why that image stood out for me, but it did. Here…
