The utter nonsense of blaming anyone but Steve Tambellini.

Oilers are where I thought they would be. An exciting, inconsistent team. I think Tambos patience is what makes him a good gm for the rebuild that we are trying to do.
When both GAgner and Hemsky were not playing up to their capabilities, he held onto them. I think that is smart. He will be able to get much more for them after a good season.
He didn't know what he had with the defense, so he sat on his hands. Again, smart. Why get rid of Whitney now? Give him at least until the trade deadline and see if he can improve his value.
We have a good situation in net because he was patient and showed confidence in Dubnyk. Would he be playing this well if they had traded for a guy like Bernier? Not sure.
When it is time to make a run and we are in the mix for upgrades at the deadline, we may need someone more proactive. Right now, minor (or no) moves are best.
As a side note, I think Horcoffs importance to this team will become apparent to his critics the longer he remains out!
