BLH followers, I'd like to introduce to you Rob Cooke.
If you think the name sounds familiar, it should. He covered the Oilers for Puckrant.com for a period of time and has also contributed over at Hometownhockey.ca. He's knowledgeable gent and he loves his Oilers!
We're so happy to have Rob and we're looking forward to all of his contributions to Beer League Heroes!
Okay, now I will be covering all the free agents and potential trade candidates either suggested by your guys' input, or recent NHL developments. I will also be covering the players LEAST likely to leave. Once again, no particular order.
Edmonton Oilers interim coach Todd Nelson is rapidly becoming the NHL’s version of Rodney Dangerfield. He doesn’t get any respect. In spite of his loyalty to the organization, and deft ability in developing young talent, it doesn’t appear he will get a sniff at a permanent head coaching position with the Oil.
