He is basically, along with Pres of Hockey Ops, co-manager of the Oilers.

now, I agree that the firing of Renney and subsequent Kruger hiring was a Tambo decision, and Lowe simply supported it. The same can be said with the Kruger firing/Eakins hiring. but, Lowe hired Tambo (his buddy from Hockey Canada), then he hired Mact (his other buddy). He has never conducted much in the way of interviews for any of these important positions.

to suggest that Lowe isn't culpable for this mess is a case of self-delusion gone amok.
