    Good move?

    Nope.

    It's an excellent move.

    Provided you're not an Oilers fan...;)

    The only really astute move I can think of the Oilers making under Tambellini's management was the drafting of Jordan Eberle. He was a great value pick. Picking 1st, well you BETTER not miss. But late in the first round it's pretty much hit and miss, and give them credit they did hit that one time. Unfortunately they haven't had many other hits. If they had they wouldn't have one of the greatest runs of futility in NHL history over the past 3+ years.

    Didn't like the way he left Tom Renney flapping in the wind for nearly 2 months when it was very clear he had no intention of keeping him. Why he never fired the guy after the regular season makes no sense. It just prolonged the agony for the guy. I wonder if Tambellini would have liked that if the shoe was on the other foot & the Oilers did that to him? You have to treat people with respect & clearly he didn't do that with Renney.

    Don't forget that the writing was on the wall all year as Renney was working under a contract that was due to expire. There is a reason that isn't done, because it inevitably turns your coach into a lame duck. But then I guess that was a perfect match because that's exactly what Tambellini is as a GM.

    As many irate Oiler fans point out...a 12 year old with a copy of the central scouting report could have drafted all the same players. He picks 1st each year...how hard is that?

    Zackly but then the San Dirgo Chargers & Green Bay Packers messed up... In hockey, there's been a few guys drafted first overall who didn't pan out. No guarantees especially when teams draft 18 year olds.

    You talkin' about blown draft picks you always gotta bring John Wayne Ferguson into the equation and his first round pickage of Jimmy Mann....

    NHL bad pick star = Ryan Leaf, the Leafmaster.....

    Stambelltini's legacy is perma first draft picker.....aka Lotto Boy!
