Lets see, a team with a snakebitten history wants to change up the locker room atmosphere so the GM goes and gets some guys with Cup experience..
Hmmmm..sounds like genius to me..
These Rags fans are hilarious. So preoccupied with what the Islanders are doing. Must be tough knowing you'll never win another cup. Should have accomplished that before the salary cap. Now you can't just go out and get guys with "Cup Experience." But don't worry you can sign Crosby in 5 years or Ovechkin in 10 or Tavares when he's 30. Hey, let's all go into a Rags forum and talk about the surging Panthers.

Ok, 7 ex-Oilers, Einstein, and your point is? Guess your too dumb to see the point, as we are being counseled on how to build a team. We made ourselves in to the New York Oilers in '94, so let's now take their coach and make him our GM. How has that worked out for you Rags fans? Go hang out in another forum.
Hey, shitforbrains.... it's spelled you're. Perhaps you should take 2nd grade English again.
