The Edmonton Oilers fired Kevin Prendergast today. I have written about him a lot over the years, specifically here, here, and here. The top of his draft record boasts Hemsky and Gagner, with Pouliot and Niinimaki at the bottom.
Guy Flaming is the most able person I know to speak about Prendergast and I’ll be checking for his story on the firing over the next couple of days. You saw this coming, hell the Oilers could pink slip the janitor and get a cheer this spring; but I do think that if Kevin Prendergast and Craig MacTavish get the handshake we can and should ask questions about the fellow who is still employed today. What, exactly, would he have to have presided over in order to get fired?
