I agree that it is not the goal...unfortunately it is the reality.
I'm not sold that either team will even do it at all.
It's easy to call a spade a spade on a bad move when you live with the consequences as a fan. When you don't, it's easier to miss. Feaster has ****ed the dog on almost everything he's done - and this includes massive contracts for mediocre players, NTC's and NMC's, and what I think is legitimately the worst line-up since the Oilers in 2009-2010.
One thing I'll say is that Burke is a man of action. He'll make a dozen moves, some will work out - others will fail. My worry is that he and Feaster, who have trashed the rebuild route, will attempt to forego it entirely.
We shall see....time will tell.
I just dont understand why Oiler fans are celebrating this signing as a positive for the Oiler org.
Maybe when this team can get out of the way from its own incompetence we can start looking down at other teams and their management.
