Reddox Looking To Fly The Coop?

Liam Reddox threatening to leave the Oilers after refusing the teams qualifying offer is like losing the "admiration" of former In Living Color character Wanda. Quite frankly it's a relief, it shows that the Oilers aren't willing to give this guy a roster spot because they want to see what bigger (Jacques, Stone) and more skilled (Brule, Schremp, Pouliot) options can do. The bottom line like I've been saying was that Reddox was our 4th best forward in Springfield before MacT made him his honorary Toby.

Later on in the year he would've been even further behind the 8 ball with the arrival of Stone and Linglet. Fact of the matter is that I'm glad that Tambo sees this player for the player not what MacT was pimping him to be. One less potentially overpaid player because he was given the push of a lifetime by the now former Oilers coach.
