This is why Lowe has to go. Some people defend him because he's not the GM anymore, and although he has oversight, he doesn't have as direct an influence on the team. But really, his "oversight" has resulted in almost 8 years out of the playoffs. Eight years. Yes, a bit of that as GM. If he is permitted to continue with such a record, then what that really means is that the position of President of Hockey Operations is a complete joke to begin with, because no matter how the "operation" performs, he's allowed to keep his job. How many presidents in the private sector get to keep their job after the company continually tanks? Even if the Oilers are doing reasonably well as a business entity, that is Patrick Laforge's purview - not Lowe's. And believe it or not, I actually think Lowe is a decent guy and an honorable man who does a lot for the community. I just think it's time for him to go.
