What happened to the days that Oiler fans held management and players accountable?
Grossman was a RENTAL when he was traded. It didn't make sense to give up a 2nd and a 3rd for a RENTAL player, it's not like we were even close to pushing for playoffs that year. Could you imagine if we had made that trade and Grossman didn't resign? Even worse a move for Tambo. In any case, that's ONE trade that maybe Edmonton could have done. Irregardless of that trade, what you have to realize is that Edmonton is still rebuilding, our team is still developing and it makes more sense to make those kind of moves when our younger guys hit their potential. This way we know exactly what we need to move towards the cup. Without making the trades you guys so badly want we are fighting for a playoff spot. That's not bad considering how it's only been 3 years since the rebuild started.
