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.
Again, if you watched hockey, which is doubtful, Rolli had barely played all year when he got here & it took him a bit of time to get his game together.
And it was clear from watching the Oilers in the 1st 40 or so games there lack of goaltending was starting to really affect the team.
Its actually comical but typical that you actually critisize the actual real good moves that Lowe made.
But again, no surprise there.
