Komisarek signing was bad, but he was worth that contract when he was signed, his game just regressed with injury after Montreal.

Phaneuf trade? Win for the Leafs. Lupul/Gardiner trade? Win for the Leafs. JVR trade? Win for the Leafs. Kadri drafting? Win for the Leafs.

Making a big move to secure both the Sedins at the '99 draft? Huge move, impacts our division to this day. Drafting Kesler? Huge win for the Canucks. Those are the cornerstones of their franchise even to this day.

Drafted Bobby Ryan, Justin Schultz for the Ducks, fleeced Lowe for Pronger without giving up Perry or Getzlaf, etc. etc. etc.

Like him or not, he definitely wins more of his personnel decisions than he loses (no GM is 100%). And he has the balls to make a move, unlike our GM.

He failed to mention we play the ducksX3, the canucksX3 (could be good or bad), the hawks, the kings, phoenix, and minnesotaX2.....
If you look at our remaining schedule it looks bloody obvious that the Oilers have no chance in making the playoffs.

They are my sleeper pick to come out of the West if they can stay healthy and play like that.
Pretty much

People give way too little credit to the opposition around here.

I'm not advocating Burke as a replacement, as much as I am advocating a Tambellini firing. I think there are better options out there, but at this point I think anybody would be an improvement over Shambo.

Great, he rode the coattails of a team that already had most of it's pieces in place to a Cup win then proceeded to dismantle said team after the fact with brutal trades and substandard drafting.

Dan Tencer thinks the fans were being negative about the booing. IMO the team deserved to be booed, The management needs to get booed next.

This isn't a playoff team this year. Accept it, move Hemsky for as good of a return as you can get.

Playoffs just became a fantasy again. What do they honestly expect? Oilers getting all butt hurt about not winning a must-win game?

So, fans aren't loud enough? Fans were too negative tonight? Yes, that's the problem. It's the fans coming up short. Gimme an F'ing break.


At least there's one reasonable media guy.

If fans booing bothers the players psyche...these guys are cream puffs. Get angry, get focused and play through it. Wow. What whiners.

Ya Tencer and Brown talking about how they never understand fans booing.

People get frustrated. They pay good money to be entertained and then watch crap. Not unexpected for a vocal minority to express their displeasure.

Burke is a horrid GM. I don't want anything to do with that guy.

On the loss, we lost to a team who play a superior system with players who fit that system well. Story of our season.

Phaneuf trade? Win for the Leafs. Lupul/Gardiner trade? Win for the Leafs. JVR trade? Win for the Leafs. Kadri drafting? Win for the Leafs.

Making a big move to secure both the Sedins at the '99 draft? Huge move, impacts our division to this day. Drafting Kesler? Huge win for the Canucks. Those are the cornerstones of their franchise even to this day.

Drafted Bobby Ryan, Justin Schultz for the Ducks, fleeced Lowe for Pronger without giving up Perry or Getzlaf, etc. etc. etc.

Like him or not, he definitely wins more of his personnel decisions than he loses (no GM is 100%). And he has the balls to make a move, unlike our GM.
Komisarek, Armstrong, the list goes on. Of course the Phaneuf trade was good but at the same time he took advantage of a stupid Sutter just as he did a stupid Lowe. If half of the teams in the league even know he was available that trade is probably different today.

I think Gardiner is overrated and Beauchiman is having a monster year in Anaheim. Is that really a win for the Leafs? JVR I'll give you (because Holmgren is just as dumb as our GM).

Sedins drafting was good, as was Kesler, although he's regressed. But at the same time he considered Cloutier the starter of the future. He has a horrible track record with goaltending.

We're definitely not a playoff team this year, but how do we become a playoff team? Development? I'm not confident that will work.

Yeah right players are being waived left and right and being traded for .20 on the dollar sounds like a real good time to go knocking on doors, doesnt it?

Management deserves the boos and I am ashamed we haven't heard a fire tambo chant all season. Even the Leafs with the priciest tickets in the league ended up booing JFJ to the point where they almost had no choice but to let him go.

I ain't even mad at the Oilers. They got beat soundly by a better team.

It's just depressing more than anything, as it shows how far this team has to go before being a contender.

Tambellini is a horrid GM. Burke is above average-to-good.

Just because he mouths off a lot doesn't change the fact that he wins the vast majority of his trades and he drafts extremely well (very good judge of talent).

If Chicago didn't have such a Bizarroworld start to the season, that division is and would be a lot closer than the point differential dictates.
