Edmonton Owner Says Changes Need To Continue

from Dan Tencer at 880iNews,

In his first lengthy media interview since the summer of 2008, Edmonton Oilers owner Daryl Katz made it clear that what has transpired on the ice this year is not acceptable.

“Most of all, this experience has been no fun for our fans. I know it, our management knows it and our players know it.”

The struggles of the team this season have presented the obvious conclusion that changes need to continue to be made and the eye on the future needs to be focused intently. The last place record has put the Oilers in a position to likely come out of the season with the highest draft pick in franchise history, allowing them to add to a modest stable of young talent already within the system.

“We’re entering a very important time for the organization’s history,” Katz says. “We are in this for the long haul and over the long haul I really like what I see. We have a great young core with a lot more talent coming along.”
