The prospect of the current Edmonton Oilers leadership hiring the right GM fills me with gloom

Who will pick the next Edmonton Oilers GM? That should be the question on the mind of every season ticket holder, every fan and Oilers owner Daryl Katz.

The current organization was built replica hermes by Bob Nicholson, who took over the team in April 2015, almost four years ago. Nicholson is fully accountable for all that has happened since that time in hockey operations, having either hired, approved replica hermes bags vista the hiring or retained all staff in hockey ops.

Hermes Handbags It clear that things have gone off track for the Oilers, and that this started with Nicholson failure in April 2015 to go through a deep and thorough search of all available candidates for the jobs of president of hockey ops and GM. Instead, Nicholson has admitted that without any wide and open job search, he hired ex Boston Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli. Hermes Handbags

Chiarelli was known to both Nicholson and to Kevin Lowe. Chiarelli and Lowe had been on the team led by Nicholson that had assembled the 2014 Olympic team, which won a gold medal in Sochi.

Of course, Chiarelli was not obviously an Oilers Old Boy. aaa replica birkin hermes bag He was an outsider. He had won a Stanley Cup in Boston, while also helping to build the Ottawa Senators into a strong team. Chiarelli may well have won any open competition for the GM job. Indeed, he likely would have won.

Hermes Replica Bags In both job searches, Nicholson would have gained a tremendous amount of outside opinion on how best to run an NHL team, hbags in general, and the Oilers, in particular. He might have heard, for example, that while everyone in Edmonton was clamouring for heavy hockey and toughness on the team (and this was certainly also the direction his new hire Peter Chiarelli wanted to go), that this wasn necessarily the way to go, at least not whole hog. He might have see heard all kinds of information about the latest in sports science and hockey analytics. He might have got a much better sense of how outsiders viewed the value and performance of the team key players, such as Taylor Hall. Hermes Replica Bags

Unless I mistaken, there nothing inherently wrong with having the same person do this job. Nonetheless, it was a major and perhaps fatal lost opportunity to not get all that valuable insider information that would have come with wider and more open searches for the most qualified candidate or candidates.

Nicholson has said that Asst. Keith Gretzky has taken over much of Peter Chiarelli former responsibility, but not included in that is being president of hockey ops. There is no one in that role, but Katz, Nicholson, MacTavish and Sutter are all above Gretzky on the organizational flow chart.

I don know about you, but the prospect of this group making the decision of picking the new GM and/or president of hockey ops fills me with gloom.

All due respect to these gentlemen, and MacTavish remains a hero in Edmonton for his work as a player and coach, but they all had their chance. It time to move on, at least when them in this kind hermes replica handbags of key decision making capacity.

Indeed, it imperative to move on.

Nicholson may well be a fine enough businessman and strong enough communicator to run reviews the Oilers Entertainment Group. He certainly comes across as a bright, capable individual, and one who also learns from his mistakes. The team continues to sell plenty of tickets. Frankly, I can comment birkin replica bag hermes on Nicholson work as a business leader, other than he appears to be doing a good job.

fake hermes belt vs real In that capacity as OEG boss, he may be the right person to oversee the department of hockey ops, but should he actually be making hockey ops decisions, such hermes replica briefcase as whom should be the next GM? Is he going to hire the right person to come in and very likely clean house, getting rid of a lot of folks that Nicholson either hired, retained or signed off on? This seems a stretch. fake hermes belt vs real

If Nicholson is staying with OEG, he now got to make one crucial call, to hire the right person as president of hockey operations, a strong, independent, experienced and successful NHL manager who will then conduct a wide search for GM.

Either that or NIcholson could contract an outside headhunter or headhunter(s), maybe someone he knows well like Steve Yzerman, to formally conduct the job search for GM, then have them make their recommendation as to whom the Oilers should hire.

Either way, Nicholson is not the person who should hire that GM himself. It got to be someone else, someone more qualified and successful at the NHL level, leading that job search and making that call.

All isn lost with the Oilers of Edmonton. In fact, far from it, not when they hbags handbags reviews have a roster with Connor McDavid, Leon Draisaitl and Oscar Klefbom all signed up long term on reasonable contracts, and not when the farm system (that to their credit Chiarelli and Keith go to the website Gretzky helped build), is starting to produce quality prospects like Caleb Jones, Kirill Maksimov and Tyler Benson.
