At the 2:10 mark.
So, if you’re scoring as home, as late as June 20, 2009, the Oilers didn’t know what Brule is publicly saying now. I’m pretty sure that their confusion ran deeper into the summer but looking for posts in the OilersNation archives is impossible, so I’ll pass but one wonders whether any decisions were made on the understanding that Brule could be sent down. It’s a small thing, but it’s relatively easy to figure out, and if they really didn’t understand this and he really is waiver eligible (I’m still holding out hope that there’s some sort of confusion somewhere, because it makes them look so bad)…well, as I said the other day – maybe the losses should be pinned to a certain degree on managerial incompetence.
Update: Jason Gregor reports that the Oilers have conceded that Brule needs to clear waivers.
