In Topic: Oilers schedule presser tomorrow

I feel mixed about Nelly taking the job. First, he's a cool guy and is one of the smarter coaches out there. I watched him for years in Muskegon and Grand Rapids and have a few pictures of us after the Muskegon Fury won the UHL Colonial Cup. He's coached at all levels. But... it's Edmonton. Eakins deserved to be fired. I just hope Nelly can turn the Oilers around, but this season is lost. I know it's only interim but maybe that's a good thing for him :)

I got an autographed puck from Twister in the '90s. He's one of my all-time favorites and is one tough dude.

Maybe this was mentioned, but I'm pretty sure the NFL has mandatory financial planning for rookies to prevent horrible stuff like this from happening. It's basically to teach them how fast you can burn through money, warn them about scams/investments and, most importantly, making sure that they have an untouchable nest egg after retirement. Whether the player actually follows through with this plan is not guaranteed.
