Hendricks for Dubnyk(Dubnyk should have been moved in the off season for a 3rd/4th line vet grinder), Bryzgalov signing(guy was playing in the ECHL while we lost any hopes of the playoffs). This team still has a long way to go and MacT hasnt addressed goaltending or defence long term. Next year isn't looking any brighter for Oiler fans then this year if Mact can't get the defence and goaltending up to at least league average.
He has been far from great but he has made some good moves as a rookie GM. This deadline and offseason will tell us all that we need to know about MacT as GM IMO. I'm hoping that he pulls a few rabbits out of his hat and this team is much more balanced and tougher to play against at the start of next season.
