Oilers Make Changes to Scouting Staff

The Oilers have reportedly made several changes to their amateur and pro scouting staffs.

Stu MacGregor joined the Oilers amateur scouting staff in 2000, becoming head amateur scout in 2007. Morey Gare joined the organization in 2001 and became head pro scout in 2008. Both aspects of the organization have been heavily criticized over the years, the amateur side for not producing enough talent in later rounds, and the pro side for failing to identify players that can have a positive impact.

The firings occur less than a week before the NHL Entry Draft, where the Oilers are expected to draft Connor McDavid 1st overall.

I've been through the ups and downs and the highs and the Lowes, the Bonsignores and the McDavids, the Sathers and the Eakins but I'll never leave my Oilers, no matter what! They're with me until the end and then some. GO OILERS GO!
