hillbilly priest, I am a big fan of yours. You had one of the best hockey posts ever a few months ago. In this post, you are right once and wrong another time.

Firstly, the macammond situation was a good deal for buttons. They paid nothing for deano and were going to miss the playoffs anyways. If anything, it got them a better draft position and that phenuef kid looks to be a keeper. Who is to say that deano wouldn't have got them a few positions higher and they would have missed out on phenuef. It was embarassing but beneficial to the org.

As for the oiler's treatment of marchant, there was only one comment ever about them receiving compensation and it was cleared up long before the trade deadline. The oilers made a decision not to trade him because he was their "playoff rental" according to lowe. The fact that they got eliminated in the first round sucks but I was at a playoff game and it was worth it to keep todd.

BTW, are you a flames fan?
