It's no wonder they still get away with it all.

Ah yes, Oilers Christmas. The day when you expected to get a Taylor Hall and instead got an Ales Hemsky.

Out if all the old boys club crew Mac T is the only one ill never hate. Such a smart hockey guy and is actually pretty funny and likable.

Tad Mikowsky 04-15-2013 09:05 PM

Honestly, if you looked through here, the tone would be that Tambo got an extension or something.

oil4life14 04-15-2013 09:09 PM

Out with old and in with the older?? What a joke! Didn't even interview any other candidates. Wake up Katz!

Preferably rolling out rather than the basic slide:laugh:

I don't think Mac will be a bad GM at all but as I've said before I'm pissed off Lowe got to make the hire. He should be gone along with Tambellini. It bothers me a guy like that, who is responsible for most of what has happened since 2006 is still here firing people around him and not taking any accountability.

His comments today added fuel to the fire.

Wretched Oil 04-15-2013 09:11 PM

He gets till the end of summer to make me happy

McRib 04-15-2013 09:11 PM

Tencer is such a brown-noser.

Call a spade a spade. Lowe is running this club into the ground.

Groucho 04-15-2013 09:12 PM

I'm going to withhold my judgement until the end of summer and see what kind of moves MacT is willing to make.

I'm assuming that's what the Oilers expect of him also as that's why he was hired.

Yeah I think MacT will do a decent job - much better than Tambellini. But its a joke that Lowe is still here.

Because people can see what happened here, Lowe decided to save his own bacon. Interesting timing with only a few games left in the season. I think Lowe could feel a rope around his own head. Puts Katz in a bad spot if he had intentions of cleaning house.

Don't forget the subtle jabs Tencer has taken at Tambo for not being aggressive enough. That's how this works. You buttkiss one guy when he's there, then throw him under the bus the minute he gets fired. Then you begin with sucking up to the new guy.

If Mac T buys out Horc I will know he is serious.

It doesn't matter what he does, good or bad, its the principle, he shouldn't be back particularly in this high level position, his best friend had to bring in "NEW BLOOD" FROM OUTSIDE!

SarahCrash 04-15-2013 09:21 PM

Alberta has it bad for being the land of the ole' boys club... I don't expect much here, now. This only furthers the destructive 'sense of entitlement' that these ole boys share.

I see an extension not a buy out. And I like MacT which wont continue if that happens.
