      Forum-specific Rules   07/11/2017

      These are board specific rules for the Trades and Rumors forum designed to provide organization and a better experience for everyone. Please review these rules before posting new threads. 
        THREAD ETIQUETTE   1. Please search for an existing thread before posting. This forum can be very fast moving, so it's understandable if redundant threads are inadvertently posted. In such a case, please use the report feature to request removal of redundant threads.    2. Provide a clearly identifiable topic title so that users can readily understand the content. The title should include any and all teams involved, as well as player names or other personnel involved as appropriate.   3. All trades, signings, rumors and other news MUST include a linkable source. Simply posting the name of the source is not enough. Effort should also be made to copy and paste the full article, or at the very least the relevant portion of text from the source to the first post of the thread. Moderators may remove low-quality threads in favour of high-quality threads. 

      Affixed to the front of your title should be a label that identifies the type of transaction that is taking place. For all trades use [TRADE]. For all signings use [SIGNING]. For all waiver-wire transactions use [WAIVERS]. For all rumours use [RUMOUR].
      For articles or news items that don't fit into the above categories, affix an appropriate label of your choice such as [NEWS], [ARTICLE] or [MISC].   4. When the status of a thread changes a new thread can be created. The new thread should reflect the change and help focus the discussion on current events. e.g. Someone may create a new thread when a rumor becomes a trades. The old thread will be locked by the moderating team.    5. Do not misrepresent the contents of your thread or post false trades or rumors. Trolling will result in a permanent suspension. 

      SOURCES   The following source types are considered INVALID. Any links to posts or threads on other message boards Any links to personal blogs Any news heard on the radio that does not have a link to an audio vault or podcast Any news seen on television that does not have a link to online video Any news spread by word of mouth
      Additionally, certain sources may be be blacklisted due to poor credentials, clear traffic-mongering etc. Blacklisted sources will be posted here. 
      Thank you for your co-operation and please PM the Administrator or Moderators if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions regarding this forum.

This is what happens when you don't take tank for the #1. Why are they bringing Howson into the organization?

Odd timing. Is this meant to inspire the team to make the push for the playoffs, or admitting that they will miss out?

I didn't think it was realistic they would be a playoff this year but were really building towards making an impact next year, but I guess you could argue that Tambellini was expected to have done more to build a complete team than rely on high draft picks and a marquee UFA signing.

hahaha Howson? awesome Also Lowe not getting fired, looks like the Oilers will be rebuilding once again. So much for those retarded predictions by espn and sports illustrated ranking them 2nd/3rd in the league.

Why not hire Messier? He has been pining for a GM job and is a former Oiler. Lowe is such a chooch..... But all in all, keep the Coilers crapty for another few years.... Tht works well for Canucks

Honestly, what did Tambo do? He signed Justin Schultz, which any idiot would've realized was a good idea. And he traded Gilbert for the other Schultz. Did he do anything else?

He definitely hasn't been building a team. He's been amassing talent. Their roster has no balance. They have an abundance of smallish, softish but exceptionally talented top-6 forwards. But there's not a single player in their top-6 who is tough to play against. And their bottom-6 is ineffective. And their defense blows. And their goaltending is dubnious at best.

MacT needs to man up and decide which of the young core he wants to keep, and which he wants to trade away to address areas of need. At the beginning of the season, when PK Subban was still unsigned, I suggested that Edmonton trade Yakupov for Subban + (Subban + Eller was what I suggested). Obviously, that'd be off the cards now. But that's the sort of move they need to make.

Generally, it holds true that the team who gets the best player in a given trade wins that trade. But Edmonton is set-up such that trading Yakupov for a solid, top-9 centre and a good two-way defenseman would substantially improve their team.

Or how about trading Gagner while his value is up. Trade him for a 2008 version of Ryan Kesler plus a little something else.

Essentially, the Oilers need to do a mini rebuild.

Remember Tambo used to be praised as a very good Assistant GM here with the Canucks - Hope he can find a new position soon! (maybe back with the Canucks?)
