If the Oilers really wanted to make the playoffs, I'd add to either of Thornton or Marleau for any of them.

Edmonton is a very poorly-run organization, but they're not incompetent to pull a Joe Thornton trade 2.0. I know you weren't trying to be insulting, but the offer nevertheless was.
Thank you Jux. Put in that light, I believe I owe the oiler nation a sincere apology.

All, please accept my apologies and try to ignore my previous rookie post.
