Students of the game at mite, peewee, junior, senior, high school, & post-secondary levels of the game need to know that hockey like any sport or "athletic battlefield" is a game of stratagem. So this is why the Edmonton Oilers let go their General Manager (GM) Steve Tambellini & replaced him with ex Oilers player & Head Coach Craig MacTavish. It was a wise move, while Mr. Tambellini got us some great players & some others with potential for talent, in his V years tenure, he wasn't able to ever get them to coalesce or be really strong as an organization.
This is why I am glad the team announced Mr. MacTavish as their Vth GM. Craig won several Stanley Cups with us & coached us to within one period of a Stanley Cup win in MMVI. I think this will be positive & will allow Craig the chance to clean up the mess & ship out personnel of a negatory nature. A master class in business stratagem to be sure. Edmonton Oilers owner Mr. Daryl Katz deserves credit for setting the ball in motion IV this transition to be so quick & so smooth.
