Nelson On Arcobello, “I’m Not Saying It’s A Good Chance, But It’s A Chance”

Nelson On Arcobello, “I’m Not Saying It’s A Good Chance, But It’s A Chance”

Following a game one defeat in overtime, the Oklahoma City media (one strong) asked the obvious question of the night, “When will Mark Arcobello return?” It’s an obvious question because Arco is a scoring beast, and a skillful fella that the Barons desperately need if they are going to outscore Western Conference opponents at any reasonably sound clip.

Here is what Todd Nelson told the Daily Oklahoman:
“Arco pretty much is day to day,” Barons coach Todd Nelson said after a 3-2 overtime loss to Texas on Wednesday night. “He has a chance to play in this series. I’m not saying it’s a good chance, but it’s a chance.”

So you’re saying there’s a chance? A slim one, but a chance, and that’s good news. I think.

Bill Scott Named Oilers Assistant GM, His Greatest Hits Remain (And They Really Were Great)

Bill Scott Named Oilers Assistant GM, His Greatest Hits Remain (And They Really Were Great)

In late summer 2010, Steve Tambellini made a pretty important hire. Regardless of how his time was spent wheeling and dealing with the Edmonton Oilers, Tambellini had huge success in the creation and supplemental healing of the team’s farm squad in the AHL. Gerber, Giroux, McDonald – all players brought in to backstop a minor league affiliate on the ropes – the success was instant. But of all the hires that season, including Todd Nelson, snatching an AHL front office guy was probably the most important.

Four years as AHL Hockey Ops Director, Bill Scott felt the desire to turn his attention towards team building. His organizational mind, and connections around the league would prove a huge asset to the Oilers farm team almost immediately. Scott, a Michigan State grad, was intelligent and considerate beyond his years. He was largely responsible for the Barons success in season one, and alongside Todd Nelson crafted one of the most potent minor league franchises in a four year span.

Announced over the weekend, Bill Scott will become the Edmonton Oilers new Assistant to the GM.
