Lowe has been a terrible GM, brutal even. No significant drafting or player development or good trades in years. This is the one thing that has bugged me about this situation. Lowe has been able to get the media and fans in Edmonton to completely apologize for all his blunders by claiming they can't compete with this CBA. Rubbish!

A good gig actually if you can manage to pull it off. I understand giving a former hero to the city a break, but Lowe can say anything he wants and it's eaten up. "I'm just trying to get to 2004". Well then, there's four free years, it's not your fault Kevin. We'll just charge the lowest price for NHL tickets in the league and then claim we're just doing it for the fans. The hockey media in Edmonton won't touch this guy, and watch now how the fans will circle the wagons.

Get rid of Lowe and get a Sutter in there, someone who talks about accountability. A new CBA won't make Lowe a smart GM, that's what he's worried about.
