many posters on here have just been waiting for any reason whatsoever to throw mact under the bus, not because of the job he's doing as gm, but soley because he's craig mactavish and part of the oilers "old boys club"

at least give the guy one full off-season to prove that he's a competent gm, if this team looks to be largely the same team as last year come spring training,then fine tear him apart, but jesus, free agency hasn't even started yet give the guy a chance to prove himself.
There are many reasons, all of which have been mentioned many times by quite a few people in this thread. Most of them are not in the simplistic vein "we didn't get the players we wanted" theme you want to make it out to be either. Furthermore, if we judged GMs by their ability avoid potential bad deals by not making any at all, then we should be enshrining Tambo in the Hall of Fame right now.

But this thread isn't "rate the GM for his entire year of work" or "rate the GM for the entire offseason of work", it's the "rate Mact's performance up to this point" thread, and surprise! Some people don't agree with your lollipops and sunshine take on the proceedings, nor does our disagreement with your take make us emotionally unbalanced idiots who are ready to throw ourselves off a bridge.
