hmm, after having a few days to chew on this hiring, i look at it like this...

Let's say you were married (lets say for oh, 8-9 years), things didnt work out so you go your separate ways (citing irreconcilable differences)...a few years go by, and you run into your ex and she starts telling you how she needs a place to stay because she is down on her luck. You, being the sentimental one, tell her she can stay at your place, but you just have to talk to your new wife first, How do you think that would go over with her? I'm thinking it wouldnt go over very well.

Thats what this feels like to some fans (just an analogy).

It's just a strange signing imo, and doesnt help alleviate the stigma of the 'old boys club', thats for sure. And it BETTER NOT affect the draft either!! If Katz wanted to give his buddies a job, i'm sure there are plenty of jobs available in his other empire.

Maybe this is what Katz meant when he sent that text to Stauffer a few years ago that said MacT isnt going anywhere.

Nah, the Oilers are smart enough to sign Pisani ahead of those guys.

The dude's lighting it up in Europe and busted his balls in the NHL (literally, lol). I actually wouldn't complain about bringing him over for a try out.

If we don't pick Yak #1, I'm pretty confident that it is because of MacT. All signs pointed towards Yak a week ago. Now MacT joins the club, and suddenly it looks like we are headed in a different direction.

As long as he is still under 6 feet tall.

How do you figure? We've been talking about the possibility of taking Murray since Lowe put him on the WC team...?

I am not a MacT fan, but that would be very unfair IMO based on what I've heard.

All this speculation started at the world championship with Lowe selecting Murray to the team. Waaaaaaaaaaaay before MacT even entered the equation. If we do pick Murray, it's all on Tambellini and Lowe.

Neither would I quite frankly. Guy was all heart with some decent skill. Not sure he would come out on just a tryout, he's probably making some nice coin there.

Frankly, outside of Belanger, and even that is debateable, he'd be an upgrade, a pretty significant one, on everybody else who played on our 4th line this year.
