Tend The Farm ~ From the wind-swept plains of Oklahoma comes Tend The Farm, where the little seedlings called Barons one day hope to blossom into full time Oilers -- one season at a time. Oh, and, farming the Oilers ain't easy. - page 2

The Todd Nelson Legacy Is A Win For The Legit

The Todd Nelson Legacy Is A Win For The Legit

Photo by Steven Christy On a cold December afternoon three years ago the Oklahoma City Barons hosted an outdoor skate with fans, coaches, and players where all three groups encouraged to mix and mingle. Prior to this engagement I had met Todd Nelson three times….

Todd Nelson Named Interim Oilers Coach, MacTavish His “Preparer”

Todd Nelson Named Interim Oilers Coach, MacTavish His “Preparer”

After firing Dallas Eakins as head coach of the Edmonton Oilers, GM Craig MacTavish turned his attention to naming a replacement. Beginning almost immediately Todd Nelson will wear the interim head coaching badge with Craig MacTavish helping him making the transition.

MacTavish says that he will be helping coach the team “and eventually hand the duties over to Todd.” As for Oklahoma City, Gerry Fleming will remain in Oklahoma City, and will serve as the head coach of the Barons at least for the remainder of this season. This moves Tony Borgford to a more permanent assistant coach behind the bench.

Dallas Eakins Fired As Head Coach In Edmonton

Dallas Eakins Fired As Head Coach In Edmonton

I’ve been gone from this site for two weeks, and pick today to make a triumphant return to the “real” world. It just so happens to coincide with the exact date and time that Dallas Eakins is fired as the head coach of the Edmonton Oilers. After less than two and a half seasons, Eakins will ride off into the sunset (with many years remaining on his contract). No replacement has been named yet peculation of both Todd Nelson and Craig MacTavish have been mentioned.

In the event that Nelson heads to the NHL there is a great chance that Gerry Flemming becomes your head coach on the farm with Tony Borgford moving more to a bench role (currently doing both video, and bench for third periods)

More updates forthcoming as time marches on.

OKC Has A Big Weekend, Begin To Eyeball AHL Beauty Contest

With 32 points in 22 games the Oklahoma City Barons are looking mighty fine these days. The funny thing about this pretty lady is that she hasn’t always been pretty. Sometimes she is unsightly, withered, unhinged, complacent, and timid. But she always has a great mind, incredibly bright for the most part, and seemingly relishes in her transformation to a beautiful creature. That’s the beauty of this thing we call the Oklahoma City Barons.

This past weekend they dismantled two very good teams in Grand Rapids and Milwaukee.
