Oilers hire Bob Green as Director of Amateur Free Agent Scouting

The Oilers have hired Bob Green as Director of Amateur Free Agent Scouting. Bob Green is the former GM of the Edmonton Oil Kings. He won the WHL Executive of the Year award the last two seasons. He’s been credited with making the Oil Kings into a habitual winner through smart drafting/scouting.

This most certainly is a good move by the Oilers who have been putting more and more focus into improving the “suits”, even if they do have a penchant for being an old boys club.

Duane Sutter hired on as pro scout

The Oilers have hired Duane Sutter on as a pro scout. This I see as a fairly good hiring. The Oilers pro scouting has been BRUTAL. Note: This is PRO scouting, not AMATEUR scouting (a ship that “Magnificent Bastard” Stu MacGregor runs quite well). Here’s hoping that Sutter helps these guys figure out an ass from an elbow.
