It has to be a leaf fan who posted this. Its a three way deal between Edmonton, Toronto, and Chicago.

Oilers lose Roli, Cogs, and Penner and get Khabibulin and McCabe lol. This is even better, the leafs deal Steen and Mccabe and get Barker, Cogs and Penner.

To be fair, this looks like a case of the poster just overvaluing McCabe. Yes, the proposal is beyond ridiculous, but I'm sorry to say Oiler fans overvalue our own players all the time (remember Pitkanen?) and some of the proposals on this forum involving the Oilers are just as unrealistic, especially to fans of other teams.

Blaming this on the poster because he cheers for Toronto reflects poorly on us as Oiler fans, I think.

Seriously?

Alright, I'll bite.

It makes us look petty and like we have nothing better to do with our time.

Linking to all the ridiculous and wacky things that the Leafs fans do for a chuckle just because we hate them comes off as pretty sad imo... but that's just me. You are certainly free to disagree. It reminds me of Canadians who go to Michael Moore movies and laugh out, "Haha, stupid Americans!" while ignoring our own social problems (not that I want to open that can of worms).

But I do want to point out once again that I agree the offer was incredibly ridiculous just so we're on the same page there.

I can't believe how terrible Leafs fans are treated on this board. Yes that proposal was crap, but I don't think that Leafs fans should be bashed that much.

I do you big doofus

Seriously though, it's a ridiculous proposal but it's just one of many. I would see ridiculous proposals outweigh reasonable ones maybe 7 or 8 to 1

Please stop linking to other areas of the board with the sole intent of ridiculing individual posters or ideas.
