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.

As far back as he could remember, he always wanted to be a head coach.

"A lot o' people don't realize what's really going on. They view life as a bunch o' unconnected incidents 'n things. They don't realize that there's this, like, lattice o' coincidence that lays on top o' everything. Give you an example; show you what I mean: suppose you're thinkin' about a plate o' shrimp. Suddenly someone'll say, like, plate, or shrimp, or plate o' shrimp out of the blue, no explanation. No point in lookin' for one, either. It's all part of a cosmic unconciousness."

Who would be a candidate to replace Oates? Mike Haviland is the only person I could really think of - then again I'm not too keen on assistant coaches.

Best of luck to him, I really liked him as an assistant coach.

Add 'find special teams coach' to Lou's to-do list.

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!

He says too many subtle things to be leaving for another team.

Once he gets there, he'll order some spaghetti with marinara sauce, and all he'll get is egg noodles with ketchup.
