I hope it was a shot at Oates. Oates fvcking blows as a coach.
I don't know how bad he is overall, but it absolutely mystifies me that he's in charge of the Power Play again. It was awful when he was here before, and it got better when he left. As soon as they announced he was back, I said to my wife that I really hope they don't give him the reigns to the power play again. But they did, and now it sux again. Go figure....
I dunno. TG asked him the questions, and he answered them. I don't really have a problem with it; I get sick of reading/hearing interviews where the players stick to the same old cliche bullsh!t answers, especially when we fans know full well they're lying. If he had said anything else, we'd all be on here discussing that fact that he didn't really mean what he was saying.
I suppose the timing is bad, but meh. So be it. I agree with others who've said anyone interested in trading for Jagr knows exactly what Jagr brings to the team. I don't think his comments in an interview with TG are going to have a tremendous effect on that. Nobody that's considering aquiring Jagr saw this interview and changed their opinion about his value to their team.
