Well I'm pissed off about a lot of UFA players that the Oilers didn't sign.
Halischuk was right at the top of my "moneypuck" list of good risk/reward players to take a shot at.
Others I would have taken a shot at:
... and that's just some of the forwards.
I also liked some of the big $ UFA players available... Iginla, Horton ect but obviously you can't always get the big names who either plain wouldn't come to the Oilers or were ridiculously overpriced (Clarkson).
Of course we really don't know for sure which of the more affordable UFA players the Oilers might have been in on... but it does seem by some of the signings that there were some reasonably cheap deals out there that the Oilers could have taken a shot at.
I guess MacT can't be perfect like us though and make this into a Cup contender in one draft and a couple days of free agency... too bad.
