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.
Not sure where your going with this. Just venting?
Burke... It took him 4-5 years and him being fired before the team finally made the playoffs and are widely considered to have overachieved to get there. Not exactly great stuff.
Has Edmonton done better? No. But more ufa will go to Toronto than Edmonton which is the main reason why we are in a rebuild anyways. Don't think there was any intentional tanking involved. If there was I think we would of done much better last year.
You kinda contradict yourself.
