I’m no Tambellini fan, but if after the way Kevin Lowe ran the franchise into the ditch he’s allowed to stay on and fire Tamby, I’d say the Oilers organization has a big problem with accountability.

Even better. They take the guy who ran Columbus into the ground and pair him with a coach they once fired. The Oilers are a criminally stupid organization.

So let me get this straight. Fire one guy, give his job to a guy that has been with the organization in multiple roles for a number of years now, and then give that guy’s job to a guy that was an abject failure in Columbus?

Great idea.

If the Oilers want change, they should actually, you know, go outside of their comfort zone and make a real change. Not just promote an essentially lifetime Oiler to a job he’s never shown he can do.

Edmonton is retread city.  Lowe and MacTavish fail in their respective jobs, but eventually end up with promotions.  Howson leaves and is a complete disaster in Columbus, but is now right back in Edmonton.  Watch as Tambellini gets rehired in two years and ends up as vice president or director of player personel or something.
