Craig MacTavish has some support within the Oilers' fanbase, and while it's mostly tepid overall, it's scalding hot compared to the support Kevin Lowe garners. MacTavish garners the most support among those who believe Steve Tambellini was the core issue within the organization, while he takes the most abuse from those who believe MacTavish is another member of the old boys' club working in cahoots with Kevin Lowe.
