IMO, the tampering allegations are real but they probably don't involve the Oilers. The tampering was by a few teams trying to convince Schultz to go UFA instead of signing. If that is true, then there could still be charges against the Leafs and Canucks.

As for an Oiler poster saying he knew two months ago, I call BS. Schultz didn't know 2 months ago. He was swayed by our coach, Hall, Gretzky, and Coffey in the 24 hours before he signed.

The Oiler org is incredibly tight lipped. All recent moves have been beyond even local media covering the team. This is why Tambellini was so pissed at Lombardi for taking everything public. There was a lot of anger in the Oiler org over how LA forced the Smyth trade by taking Smyth's trade demand public.
