I thought Adam Oates couldn't be made head coach because he's got Irish blood. In order to be made, you've got to be 100% Italian so they can trace your family back to the Old Country.

This place just started liking him and now he's leaving. Shame.

i always thought that he could've done more with the PP but in the end, the forwards really liked him so there you go.

i would assume that barr would slide into that role. there's talk that larry could likely be done as well - not sure where lou goes with that but i'm sure deboer has thoughts and he's got a voice now too.

There's something to be said regarding overall organizational quality where the coaching assistants get raided to take over other clubs. Detroit specifically comes to mind. Best of luck Oatsie (well except for 4 times a year).

Don't know how good a head coach he'll be, but wish him the best.

Funny reading all the posts now after halfway through this season this board was ready to kill him for all the shorthanded goals against.

Best of luck to him!

People have very short memories......

Who are we talking about again?

Brylin

Holik

Fetisov

Please Lou - someone from the outside with no ties to NJ!

Needs more Dowd.

Only about him. And I was wrong once with a scoop I thought I had, so go figure.

after 4 years he finally got the PP to be somewhat effective and now he's going to the craps! too bad he did not go to a western conference team.
