Edmonton Oilers General Manager Craig Mactavish met the media after the trade deadline and as usual he was quite chatty.  As a fan it’s great to hear him speak so often and in such detail but he I’m sure the higher ups aren’t too happy with many a word that comes out of his mouth.  This year’s post deadline media availability was as expected but a few things stuck out to me that irked me and made me think…Mact is either lying to us or he’s an idiot!
