Tough life, and if he wants out, good riddance to him.
DB, I have noticed that there have been a series of young, talented players who came to the Oilers. They played great for awhile, then all tailed off (it is a long list so I will let you figure out). Why? Do you have the answer for why the best or good players suddenly become mediocre? I have the answer... Once they have got hooked to MacT's system, their performance gets downward. I will not give you any proof because there are too many cases like that (inluding Smyth, Comrie, Brewer, Horcoff......long long list). So... do you think MacT's system is suitable for young players? I doubt it. Look at those trends and reason out for yourself. Or perhaps you va better answer for my question? Thank you.
