Though a GM would be foolish to make a decision based on some forum of pretend people I would bet they have their people check ALL sources looking for a feel of what a player brings. Guaranteed somebody reads this stuff. Might be one of the media people that teams own or maybe they have someone dedicated to scouring the net for tidbits. We're talking millions of dollars of deals so they do do-diligence.
So you feel that the people in command of Oilers are doing there jobs even though the results have been 30th, 30th, 29th, 24th, and we're looking to finish 29th again. Oiler fans are asking for improvement, it's not like there asking to be Stanley cup champions tomorrow. IMO when you have 3 first overall picks and you still don't improve, that is a joke. Craig Mctavish may be very active and did some good trades but he is not addressing the main issue ( Defense ) trading for 4rth line players is not going to turn this team around. He needs to grow a pair and trade either Jordan Eberle, Nail yakupov or the first round pick for an established defensmen.
