All of these "trades" people are proposing is stupid. A wont happen, B still have the same core and GM.

Game Over, people.
I agree with everything you say here. But at some point I would expect Oates to be canned if this continues. Is it fair? Nope. But thats how it will play out.

I know firing Oates is tough to do so soon.

McPhee? Players traded?
Stick it out?
As far as this season goes they should just stick it out and hope for a turnaround.

I don't think trades are the answer here during the season. A GM switch doesn't do much right now either...that would be best in the offseason.

In the NHL and NBA the solution is always to fire the coach and thats what will happen.
