Its part of the loser mentality Replacement is talking about in his thread. Some fans have become so beaten and cowed by the years of failure and draft picks under Katz that they no longer recognize an intelligent hockey move.

Those trades as a whole were off the charts.
Yes they were. Probably the best series of moves any Oiler GM has ever pulled off, and certainly a candidate for the best series of trades by any GM in the league over the first decade of the 2000s.

Jeff Woywitka
Doug Lynch
Eric Brewer
Mike York
4th round pick
Marty Reasoner
Yan Stastny
2nd round pick
1st round pick
Tony Salmalainen


Chris Pronger
Jaroslav Spacek
Michael Peca
Dwayne Roloson
Sergei Samsonov

Other than Reasoner and Brewer and the 1st rounder, that's a bunch of junk traded away for really good NHL players.
And people praised Tamby when "cleared the junk" by releasing guys like POS and JFJ
