from Terry Jones of the Edmonton Sun,
It was a big build-up for an extra large letdown.
The hype and anticipation for new Edmonton Oilers GM Craig MacTavish to be bold and exceptionally active.
It was the complete opposite of the projected plan, the expressed and even trumpeted mission to move draft choices and assets to acquire missing links and support players who could play a role and still be able to contribute offence.
Instead of adding three or four 26- and 27-year-old veterans as envisioned, the Oilers stocked the organizational cupboard by making more 18-year-old picks than they had when they arrived!
