from Dan Barnes of the Edmonton Journal,
As Textgate proves, Daryl Katz can be all thumbs.
The hardwired Edmonton Oilers owner whose heartfelt but clumsy text vote of confidence in head coach Craig MacTavish poured digital fuel on a raging bonfire in the middle of this hockey-mad community, has been in cyber-contact with other members of his team this season. He sent Andrew Cogliano a text after the diminutive centre scored the winner against Tampa Bay on Feb. 24.
“He just said ‘inspiring game, keep it up, you’re playing well.’ It goes a long way to showing what kind of guy he is. I thought it was pretty cool to have your owner text you,” said Cogliano. “It’s not like you’re talking to an owner, just a regular guy.” Katz also sent Sam Gagner a text on the road on March 17.
