Katz Angry / Tom Renney Fired After 4-2 Loss To Wild / Krueger Takes Over

"I've had enough!", Oilers owner Daryl Katz said early this morning to a couple of local scribes. "Tom Renney is no longer the coach of the Edmonton Oilers. We thank him for his time and for what he has done, but we need to move on. Enough is enough."

Surprisingly Katz made the claim himself. He's generally quiet and isn't one to speak out often, but for what ever reason he decided to speak for himself this morning. The scribes said he was visably upset that it's almost spring and no playoffs yet again for his beloved club.

He also mentioned that Ralph Krueger will take over the team until further notice.

The Oilers will make an official announcement later on this morning.

Stay tuned for more developments...

The Edmonton Oilers April Fools Joke

The Edmonton Oilers sure didn't forget about April Fools day like I did. But I suppose that's what happens when you have a new baby in the house like I do.

But nonetheless, the Oilers laid out a good one on us.

The prank involved Devan Dubnyk moving up to play center on Friday vs the Stars. Some people that I know actually thought this was real. Some of them had seen it over at and I kept receiving texts about it. lol. I had such a good laugh.

So I figured that I would replay it here at OJ. For memory sakes...



The Edmonton Oilers even went as far as changing the Depth Chart (see pictures below). I have to admit, it was a good prank.
