Anyone think we maybe should have taken Galchenyuk?

Yeesh, I think a lot of members here would be a lot happier living under a dictatorship.
Hi Giggli, I have to apologize, looking back what I said was unnecessarily crass - I was on my mobile at the time and didn't see who had made the OP, and assumed that rather than a regular it was one of the many one-off posters who make some ridiculous thread and then kind of disappear again. Not that that makes what I said any more justified - people should be able to say whatever they want (even if it's hard to put up with sometimes).
That said, sorry, I just don't agree. I feel like it's too knee-jerk-reactionary to Galchenyuk's good start. I'm doubly against it in that I don't think we made a bad pick in Yakupov at all. I am triply against it in that I am a big Gagner fan and I personally consider him part of the core and one of the heart-and-soul players on the Oilers, and don't want him replaced.
Oh, and it is a habit of mine to typo 'weird.' Haha.
