MacT is even more of a yes man to Lowe, and even coached Horcoff for half of his career. The odds of MacT buying out a player, signed long term by Lowe, is outrageously low. Don't count on Horcoff being bought out.
Double Yup. This organization is loyal to a fault. See buchberger and semenko. 0% chance he is bought out. He has a lifetime job with the Oilers... He and smyttie.
