Not the only one either questioning this move. Guys like Everest, Silver also knew this was a nothing addition by an org flailing away.

Rather than noting a plurality note how many people were plain wrong on this player or invoked fantasy on what he would contribute here. But these people are not paid to be pro hockey GM's.
Forsure, a few people including yourself had some concerns but the vast majority liked the signing. Edmonton was way too soft. I could go and quote 100 posts of people praising Tambellini from that thread. Like I said I thought it was a year too much but that's what the Oilers have to do to attract free agents.

Unless we're offering the most money or the longest contract there's not many players who are going to choose Edmonton.

Besides Schultz that is... thanks Schultz!
