But that is my entire point. The Oilers future has all kinds of players who will be able to play BIG roles. But eventually you have to make that jump, and I know Lowe wants/expects that this year should be the year. If he is serious a deal like this wouldn't/shouldn't be something he doesn't strongly considered if it's on the table (which I know its not).
