The Oilers hired their coach and parted ways with one of their legends. It’s your Wednesday Morning Hot Links.
- The Oilers hired Dave Tippett to be the bench boss for the 2019-20 season. He replaces Ken Hitchcock, who replaced Todd McLellan during the season. We’ll have plenty on Tippett in the coming days, but for now, check out BaggedMilk’s opener over at Oilers Nation.
- The Oilers have parted ways with Paul Coffey. I didn’t even know that Coffey was with the team until I heard about it in March. MacTavish is over in the KHL, Coffey has been relieved. Czechboy sees changes! (Copper and Blue)
- Lowetide takes a quick and dirty look at the new Oilers coach, Dave Tippett. Also, what to do with Jesse Puljujarvi? (Lowetide)
- Bruce McCurdy’s end of season recap on Darnell Nurse shows that the Oilers rearguard should stay in the fold. (Cult of Hockey)
