Morning Line- Eric Duhatschek On Craig MacTavish

Something needs to change, and if it isn’t a blockbuster trade, maybe it’ll be as simple as landing a highly regarded prospect such as Connor McDavid or Jack Eichel in the 2015 NHL entry draft.

Fans may ponder the long-term benefits of that, and team officials may, in their most private moments, wish for that, too. From his perspective, MacTavish cannot. He needs to prove to Katz that this team, his baby, is heading in the right direction. Otherwise, he will be like Eakins, looking for a new opportunity.

It is baffling that Lowe & MacTavish still have jobs. If Katz wants a good team next year he would be best to fire them now and let a new management team build a team around either Connor McDavid or Jack Eichel. Drafting a top player and letting Lowe & MacTavish ruin him like they did for the last several good draft picks would be a huge mistake. Oilers need a smart hockey man running the show and Lowe & MacTavish have proven that they are anything but hockey smart.
