But how many Oilers have a Bat Phone directly to the owner? The biggest problem with the Wild is that the owner is a fanboy and is buds with Parise and Suter.
Unless Guerin told him "The only way I'm taking this job is if you stay in your lane and let me do my job of building the team as I see fit..."
I am not sure why this revelation surprises anyone. Some of us had been hinting at the locker room and culture problems of this club for years. It’s very evident in the way they play, how ice time is distributed, overtime groupings and their shift times that a definite pecking order is in place.
