I hope that Kevin Lowe publicly offers around the 1.5 million mark for one year. Then if Mike spurns it, let him sit on his ass for the entire year. Repeat process until Mike understands.

Unfortunately that won't happen as the Oil would deal him long before the end of the season. It would be nice though to see a stubborn player made an example of and have to miss a couple of years in the NHL. If the figures can be trusted, the league lost as a whole 300 million last year. This situation with Mike is part of the problem IMHO because at some point either the Oilers will bend or the team that gets Mike in a trade will overpay him. When was the last time there was a player out there that the fans seriously thought was underpaid...to the point of being p'od at management for? Sooner or later the pendulum has to swing back the other way or else those that want to watch an NHL game live will have to travel to the USA or Toronto to do so.
