yes, i know Hall is good. but he's not elite yet. he's getting paid based on potential. same with Eberle.
The Fistric trade isn't the reason showing he isn't just trying to rack up the picks. It was just one thing that was direct opposite of what you claimed. Signing JShultz, KFoster, Belanger, Eager, Hordichuk, and Barker. Getting Sutton, actually doing the trade for Smyth etc would seem to be opposite of sitting out. Not every move has worked out, but he hasn't been sitting out and just waiting for picks.
How many players signing their second contracts aren't getting paid for their potential? Why is it wrong for the Oilers to do it?
