Well i think right now. Lowe is. However only within the Edmonton Community. I guess he has a lower profile than the likes of Messier, Gretzky, Modano Lemiuex as he hasn't done score a bunch.
He was EDM's 1st pick.
It made better sense to him to pick EDM over NYR. NY isn't exactly the best place to raise a family. EDM is a smaller closer knit community, more of a family style city.
Things just snowballed from there. Assistant coach one year, then head coach was offered when (Ron) Low couldn't be signed. Then the year after, Slats left due to his $2M payroll. I guess it's karma.
Too bad Gretz didn't invest in EDM become an owner up here. Then again, he would have to deal with 30 or so other ownders.
Oh well, let's not get to carried off.
LOWE IS THE MAN.
