So I fail to see how the "fuits of MacT's horrible coaching" has put this team in a favorable position.

Tambellini deserves credit for signing Schultz, but he wasn't exactly doing anything that 29 other GMs weren't already trying to do. Did Schultz chose the Oilers over every other team because of Tambellini's masterful management? I'd love to hear that case made.
Eberle pick is a bit of a misnomer. We moved our first rounder that year for Penner I believe (and I'm pretty sure that pick was the 12th overall pick and Tyler Myers). We got the Eberle pick from Ana for Pronger.

Still, I agree with your point that MacT always got the most of his line up. I can't imagine what he would have done with the top 6 that we have now - he never had anything close to that.
