BTW, you are an Oiler fan right?
Yeah I'm an Oiler fan.

I get why Burke is doing it, what I'm saying is that if he didn't make dumb signings in the summer he wouldn't have to do this kind of deal. Doug Weight for McDonald? Come on, thats absolutely brutal. The ducks secondary scoring is already brutal, and it just got worse.

Yeah Mcdonald jumped on the Selanne trade the last couple years. But he's still better than Doug Weight. Who before a week ago didn't have a goal.
