Not even close. At least tambo stays away from these embarrassing trades. Feaster welcomes them

Steve Tambellini. His drafting is absolutely horrid.

People are just saying Feaster because he's fresh in their minds.

It's pretty hard to **** up 1st overall picks... But you could argue that Tambellini even managed to do that. Chicago and Pittsburgh both won cups with their stars on ELCs, surrounded by talent. Tambellini blew Hall/Eberle's ELCs surrounding them with Hordichuk, Eager, Petrell, Brown, Belanger... And then he started RNH's ELC well before the Oilers had a hope in hell of competing, because he's delusional.

And please, you are really downplaying Ryan Whitney. When he was first traded to the Oilers, there was talk of him wearing a letter, leading this team, and he had a solid performance for the rest of that season. Obviously things haven't turned out since his foot injury and he's a shadow of his former self. But acquiring Whitney was a good move initially.
Whitney was a good defenseman but he was coming off an unsustainably good year (please, he was NOT going to score 59pts again).

The price they paid for Whitney was a healthy and easily top-4 defenseman in Visnovsky.

Quote:
Justin Schultz was also a very good signing
In 4+ years as a GM Tambellini has made one good signing. Woot. Go Steve!

Quote:
Belanger and Eager were reasonable moves but didn't pan out. Belanger especially has underperformed by a lot.
Belanger was a pretty bad signing. Want to guess how many 3rd/4th line grinders get 3 years of term at age 33? The answer is Belanger is probably the first.
Belanger's 3rd year

The Oilers gave up a 2nd round pick for him, them he signed with the Rangers. The Flames later acquired Kotalik (giving up Prust and Jokinen for him and Higgins) but that wasn't Feaster, it was Sutter.

How about some more Tambellini ****ups? Want to talk about his exorbitant extension for a 7th defenseman in Andy Sutton? How about when he thought the Oilers were a playoff team in December of last year? How about a list of NHL players who have LEFT the team since Tambellini took over?

That's a MUCH more impressive list than what Tambo has acquired. Other than stumbling into 1st overall picks (two of which were accidents; he spent to the cap OR said the goal was playoffs 2 of 3 years), Tambo has sunk that franchise.

Feaster has drafted better, and done better in free agency to improve his team. I don't get how this is a debate. You can cite the ROR incident but there's no proof of what would have happened either way.

As for the Iginla trade, the guy's hands were clearly tied, and to call two kids nobodies just because you haven't heard of them shows a staggering level of ignorance.

Feaster's ineptitude is highly overrated.

Feaster is much, much worse. He has no hockey sense whatsoever, the average HF Boards poster is more intelligent than he is. I knew from the second he was signed that he was ****ing awful. Just read a few of his THN articles.

Sticking with Tambellini. Feaster is in a tougher spot and at least he tries. That said, either of them being employed by an NHL franchise is a headscratcher.

Drafted Bartschi, Gaudreau, Gillies, Broissoit, a few players who have been MVP's for their team.

Signed Jiri Hudler, who was been one of Flames most potent forwards.

Signed Cervenka who is starting to settle into NA game and has shown great skill on his goals. He could be a gem if Calgary can keep him.

He also took the Tim Erixon debacle and spun it at the 11th hour into Roman Horak, Markus Granlund, and Tyler Wotherspoon. Horak is a solid asset for Calgary and the other two were standouts at last WJC.

Those are just a few examples off the top of my head as to why Feaster is a better GM.

Everyone said the Oilers had to do a rebuild from the ground up a few years ago but now that they're doing it people hate on the GM's every single move. What Tambellini has done was hard to go through however, he has brought in a lot of elite level young talent compared to 4 years ago when Gagner and Hemsky were considered the franchise cornerstones.

Tambo has filled the prospect cupboards with an overflow of great young talent and the roster is filled with elite young talent.

What has Feaster done? Try to patch up holes on a sinking ship for the past couple of years and now its all starting to fall apart.

How has he drafted better? what draft pick(s) are clearly better? Barstchi who was supposedly a calder favourite now in the AHL? What free agents beside Hudler have been good? Wideman at 5 mil for 5 years with a NTC? Cervenka in the pressbox?

Both are inept, no way around it

For a 3rd and Aaron Johnson. Quite literally the best trade of all time.

The funny thing is, Johnson was 10x the d-man Staios was when he played here

They are both horrible. Tambo just sits around and does nothing while stockpiling picks, while Feaster makes bad decision after bad decision. I'd say Feaster is worse, but jesus they're both so terrible does it even matter who's worse?

Those are just a few examples off the top of my head as to why Feaster is a better GM.
Ignoring 1st overalls, since the new scouting staff took over, Oilers have drafted Eberle, Hartikainen, Paajarvi, Lander, Roy, Marincin, Bunz, Klefbom, Musil, and Reider, all whom have played very important if not MVP roles for either the Oilers or their minor league teams.

Signed Schultz who has settled into the pro game and has shown great skill at the NHL level, not to mention terrorizing the AHL. He is a gem outright.

He also took Dustin Penner and spun it into Colten Teubert and Oscar Klefbom. Teubert is a solid asset for Edmonton and the latter was a WJC all-star at 18.

Those are just a few examples of how I can spin the story to make Steve Tambellini sound like a good GM, ignoring all the terrible moves when in fact he's terrible. Jay Feaster is the worst GM in the NHL, with Steve Tambellini hot on his trails.

You don't need a great résumé to be better than Tambellini... You just need to have a pulse and make a single good hockey decision, really...

I don't AGREE with these awards necessarily but Feaster DID win AHL executive of the year in 1997, and NHL executive of the year in 2004.

Oooh executive of the year. I think Detroit should fire Ken Holland and bring in Feaster instead.
