To suggest that Lowe shouldnt have made the moves that he did, with the resultant SCF 7th game, is patently ridiculous. Those trades as a whole were off the charts.
Yes, of course you are right as always. Good thing you actually watched hockey that year. You would obviously know that Roloson posted a .905 sv% in his 19 regular season games with the Oilers. Good enough for 26th best in the league.

Of course that very good team with really bad goaltending was actually 12th in GA/G while 15th in GF/G. A real juggernaut they were. Last seed in the playoffs my eye. Odds on favourite? You bet.

Where he really shone was in the playoffs. But then again, it is fairly obvious to those who actually watched all the games these last seven years that the trades made that season provided short term gain at the expense of loooooooong term pain. Still felt today really.
