It is rot.
If we were 48 games into an 82 game season in the 2013 season, we'd likely have another lottery pick. If we had sustained any more major injuries besides RNH, we'd be at the ocean floor.
Rebuild? Bull. Incompetence.
MacT has to be better than the men who thought he is qualified for the job. No GM experience, yet he has to surround the spoils of ineptitude with actual depth.
And some Oiler fans rag on Burke.
What Burke has done in the past and what Oilers management has done in the past are mutually exclusive though.
You're equating criticizing Burke with patting Oilers management on the back for some reason.
