After a disappointing draft day for the Oilers the one upside is listening to the post draft jokes that everyone's making about MacTavish. I just wanted to share my favorite with you......
On the day of the 2013 NHL draft, Edmonton Oilers owner Darrell Katz gives GM Craig MacTavish 1 brand new gold looney.
MacTavish then trades the new looney for 2 shiney quarters.
Then, MacTavish exchanges his 2 quarters for 3 whole dimes.
MacTavish then trades his 3 dimes for 4 big, shiney nickels.
Then lastly, he trades his 4 beautiful nickels for 5 nice copper penny's.
MacTavish then shows what he did to Katz and Katz asks, " What did you do!!??". MacTavish replies, " I got 5 pieces for the 1 you gave me!!!"
I got a good laugh out of this. Because it's true. MacTavish traded all his picks down to get more players, but he picked quantity over quality. For shame.
