The Morning Constitutional - The "Tambellini Got Fired" Edition, April 16th 2013


Happy “Day After Tambellini Got His Walking Papers” day to you.

On today’s Morning Constitutional, nothing but stories about Steve Tambellini and Craig MacTavish.  Please enjoy with a scone, biscotti or cannoli and a fresh coffee.  You’ve earned it, you magnificent bastards you.

Here’s a little bit of what’s been going on over the past 24 hours.

Tyler Dellow / MC79 – After Mere Hours of Assessment, Oilers GM Correctly Identifies Problem – The Oilers are getting outshot by a lot.  Craig MacTavish has figured this out after less than a day on the job.  MacTavish 1, Tambellini 0.

Lowetide – Brand New Day – “As a fan, watching your team lose is exhausting. It really is.” .  Good riddance to bad rubbish.

Jonathan Willis / Oilers Nation – Lowe:  “We Have Two Types Of Fans” – Well, now that Tambellini is gone, looke like Kevin Lowe will be the guy who says awkward stuff at press conferences for the next while.  Here’s a free tip Lowe:  separating your fans by the ones at games with the ones not at games isn’t a good post-apocalyptic foot forward, amigo.

Derek Zona / Copper and Blue – Craig MacTavish has the Qualifications, It’s The Baggage That Makes Fans Nervous – Most everybody was more than happy to see Tambellini blow by the wayside.  Here’s hoping Kevin Lowe will let MacTavish do the job he was brought in to do.  PS:  If you aren’t happy to see Tambellini get fired, please leave a note at the bottom clearly illustrating your (wrong) point of view.

Lisa McRitchie / Oil Patch – Out With The Old, In With The…Older?  - It’s a hard day when we have to say goodbye to the man who was at the helm for three consecutive draft lottery victories.  Wait, I lied.  Bonus:  Harvey The Hound video.

Edmonton Journal / David Staples : NHL Twitterverse reacts to Oilers firing Steve Tambellini, hiring Craig MacTavish – What happened when the news broke?  This.
