The interview is here.
- Interesting interview, sounds like the Oilers are going to try and make a deal to improve the club now and prune the forward group. Kevin Lowe had mentioned it before and this looks like a variation on the theme.
- “It’s up to him” in regard to Schremp and MacT detailed some of the issues that have held him back. Also mentioned he’s surprised at how much attention Schremp gets which made me giggle. MacT said he needs to get stronger and faster. These MacT quotes are beginning to resemble the Jani Rita comedy clips that the coach was famous for a few years ago. Sounds like Schremp’s a winger from here on out.
- Looks like Buchberger will be announced as a coach in the next week or so, although you have to put two and two together.
- Too many forwards and they’ll have to figure it out in TC (although a trade would also make decisions easier).
- Raved about Nilsson.
- Sounded very positive about Pitkanen, which I think is the best news in the entire interview.
