So as fully expected every one and their dog is acting as if the 'rebuild clock' was set back to zero when MacT was hired and that we can just leave gaping holes on the roster because we are not going to contend for the cup next year.

The Oilers add starting two wingers, the oilers added two starting Dmen. They so far have left a edmonton street like pothole at Center.

Once again the issue is two fold, no proven 2nd line center which in of itself could we waited on to see if an 18 year old rookie or minor leaguer can fill, the problem is we have almost zero depth at center.

I can see the quotes now half way through the season as Boyd gordon is our #2 center, Arco of Nuge is injured and 18 year old Draisitl is -20. "How could Mact have known we would have injuries!?!?!?"

"MacT is doing a good job because he just traded a 2nd round pick and one of our defensive prospects to get a center and plug the hole!"

I just hope to heck they have a semi legit Plan B in place if plan A goes badly.
