K Lowe on team 1260 tonight

Kevin Lowe was on 1260 tonight and was on a call with Jim Rutherford not Mike Keenan. Carolina is hot to unload Kevin Weekes... ?

Also some interesting tidbits, he speculated that there wouldnt be much activity involving roster players because of the uncertaintly regarding the landscape of the NHL leading upto the CBA (no big news flash) however he also noted that with no agreement between the IIHF and the NHL that it maybe almost impossible to pry Ovechkin and Malkin out of Russia without a hefty transfer fee, similar to soccer was the comparison. That pretty much rules out the Oilers trying to get either the 1st or 2nd pick barring a minor miracle. He believes that all 3 of the top rated goalies may go before the 14th pick and that will leave the org. a very good prospect. He named Shremp, Ladd, Radulov, Tukonen, Stafford and Picard among the first forwards to go. Having said that he also noted that he is confident that all his players will be qualified and that there wont be many surprises regarding the Oilers roster come July 1st.

To me it pretty clear that any deals will be few and far between unless there is a domino effect where someone is very agressive to move up and the rest of the league shuffles along with them. Interesting...

Thanks for the update, Obsessed. Interesting that he sees it as 3 top goalies not 2.
