Great Scott!!

Well, the Oilers have finally hired a GM for the Oklahoma City Barons. Feel free to shout a collective “who?”. Anyone that knows details on this guy, feel free to fill the rest of us in.


General Manager Steve Tambellini announced today the Edmonton Oilers have appointed Bill Scott as General Manager of the Oklahoma City Barons.

Scott, who was recently the Director of Hockey Operations for the American Hockey League, will oversee the entire Barons’ hockey operations department.

    In other news, Madden also has signed a 1-year deal with the Wild.

    To kick us in the nuts even more, TSN chose to use a pic of a very saddened Horcoff as Madden celebrates a goal.

    Damn and for 1 million/one year. I would have like him on the OIlers. His experience would have really helped show the guys how to play the role of a shut down guy as well as being a player that knows what it takes to win as well.
    We haven’t had a guy that can do that for along time. Good signing for the Wild.

    For those wanting to know a bit more on this guy, I’d suggest reading on Coming Down The Pipe. Flaming has talked to a couple of people about the hiring that said it is a pretty strange move by the Oilers (and confesses that even he hasn’t even heard of the guy):

    Madden likely was looking at the travel difference between Edmonton and Minnesota. He’d be putting on way less airmiles in Minnie and being American, Minnesota is kind of the Mecca for hockey there. It’s also the New Jersey Devils West so he’ll fit in with the team culture very easily. Too bad though. I was hoping we’d get him to be a positive role model and mentor for the kids.
