People that are accusing posters of impatience are missing a major point:

Currency. The reason so many are angry is that a major resource to acquire talent is now gone. Our draft picks, specifically our second round picks (according to MacT) were bargaining tools to acquire depth now.

We are now forced to wait for a UFA class that is far from impressive to improve our team.

Lastly, I don't understand why we are comparing the Oil to the other teams when looking at activity levels. More than the massive majority, the Oilers needed (and made a statement of need) to acquire depth now.

What happened to exposing ourselves to risk to acquire talent? Just because the Bolland, Clutterbuck, Schneider, Sekera were the only trades, does not mean there weren't other trades available.

MacT's tenure post-Eakins acquisition has been a failure.
