Traded Horcoff and upgraded him with a UFA C in Boyd Gordon
Signed UFA Dman Ference
Signed sizable UFA winger Joensuu who is well liked on HF
Re upped Nuge
Traded MPS for Perron which is a steal

The only thing I think HF can really be upset with MacT about is Laberbera and the Oilers goal tending in general. But we do have proof that he tried to trade for several goalies that were on the market, he just wasn't willing to drop his pants to get them.
We all know what he has done including hiring the coach on a whim that you are blaming for the poor start. At this point in time his ancilliary players are producing no better than the Tambo off seasons of belanger, eager, foster, Hordichuck, Barker etc.
