NHL BREAKING NEWS: Edmonton GM Steve Tambellini fired ***UPDATED: Craig MacTavish to take over.***

As per Ryan Rishaug of TSN on Twitter, the Edmonton Oilers are calling a press conference at 10:30am MST to announce the firing of General Manager Steve Tambellini.  This is HUGE news in Oil Country, and I will have more to write on it later.  In the meantime, if you’re on twitter, look up “fakeoilersgm” – that guy is hilarious!


As per Elliotte Friedman on Twitter, Craig MacTavish – former Oiler player, coach and current Vice President of Hockey Ops – will be taking over as General Manager.  This is welcome news to many on the Oilogosphere and will make for a very interesting offseason…

    This is interesting. I remember someone who has the Oilers quite close to their heart saying something to me recently about the changes that needed to be made?
