The Morning Constitutional – The “Tambellini Got Fired” Edition, April 16th 2013

You silver fox, you. Jason Franson/Canadian Press

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.
