Kevin Lowe has handled the Marchant and Comrie situations brutally. My impression is that he takes contract negotiations way too personally, when it should be just business as usual. (His comment about "Dont' compare me to Comrie, I won five Stanley Cups!!" being especially idiotic). I mean, it's good to be passionate about things, but not at the expense of the team.

At least Glen Sather was willing to stay loyal to his players, and he never burned any bridges with guys who were traded, which is why so many ex-Oilers returned to the organization in spite of testy negotiations in the past(e.g. Lowe!).
