Take this with a grain of salt but I was watching Hockey Central @ Noon on SportsNet and two of the anchors both stated that their have been rumblings about Oates eventually taking the reigns from Lou when the time is right.
I was debating to put this in the Locker Room section but I decided on here. For me Stuart Scott was a staple every night when I was a kid growing up. Even though SportsCenter did not show a lot of hockey highlights I always enjoyed it because of Stuart. The entire sports world lost a great anchor and an even greater man today. He battled cancer for seven years. He will be missed.
