Of those 4 years we went to the playoffs, 3 of those years were because of Sather. That 4th year had a lot to do with Sather as well.

Almost every move he's made has been a lame attempt at saving Edmonton from finishing in last place.

Vannek - Get a 1st line winger so that we can have a big guy to put up big goals. We give up four first rounders and probably fail to attract the free agents we need to stay competitive while we fail to keep the cupboard stocked with prospects.

Visnovsky - We traded away two rugged integral parts of our penalty kill who were happy to be in Edmonton for a PMD who eventually demanded to be traded for someone who was made of glass.

Heater - Again Lowe is trying and willing to pay a high price for someone who's got a record for changing his workplace as almost as often as me.

Redden - There were so many rumours about Edmonton's interest in this guy to the extent that you'd actually see a the odd Oil fan with a Redden jersey. Great thing we didn't deal for him, because Chara did for him what Markov did for Komi.

Smyth - Brought him back for cheap as a PR stunt to make the fans happy. It was too late, though. He was burned out.

The only difference between Lowe and Milbury is that Lowe was always shooting for guys with a good track record, while Milbury was usually dealing for potential.
