I heard this type of thing 5 years ago. I heard it 4 years ago. I heard it 3, 2, and 1 year ago. Every year, you have apologists saying that it takes time to turn things around (even if Lowe was the chief when the mess was created), and we can't judge Lowe yet.
Well it's not this hard to build a playoff team. It doesn't take 7 years to create a winning team. How do I know? How about the fact that Edmonton will soon have the longest playoff drought in the NHL.
Here's a stat to show just how historically bad Lowe has been during his tenure. In another 3 weeks, only 5 teams in the
of the NHL will have had longer playoff droughts. Requiring 8 years to get to the playoffs is not normal.
