I was listening to Just A Game show on CJCA at midnight, and John Short came on and talked to the host Jason Gregor. He said he had conversations with a scout from the Capitals earlier in the evening, while the Wild-Oilers were playing, who said that Lowe is extremely disappointed by the way the Comrie camp has handled things, and will not make a trade immediately, out of spite from the Comrie group. Short was particularly upset about the fact that Winter refused the offer to play at the Spengler Cup by saying its only "Hockey Canada." Clearly, Comrie's camp has been very disrespectful towards Lowe, the Edmonton Oilers and others (Hockey Canada, with whom Kevin Lowe is associated with) and this has changed Lowe's view. Why should he yield to a player (or agent) who disrespects the team. Short also added that another scout made similar comments during the game.

I thought this was of interest, especially considering the offensive lull the Oilers are in right now. What will neccesitate the need to trade the guy?
