i defenetely say lowe

obviously everyones gonna say sutter though

bringing in kipper, simon, and going to the finals in his first year

i think kipper is overated and wont perform the same next season

soon people well see that lowe has built a young team that well succeed for awhile where as (i hate to say it) calgary i can guarantee wont be in the finals again in the next 8-10 years

i hate it how people get so carried away by the spur of the moment and dont look at the big picture

FLAME AWAY

What a stupid thing to say.

That's ignore list worthy, thanks for the insight.

Agreed. I can picture people stating similar guarentees last offseason.

Sutter made some shrewd deals, but I'm gonna go with Lowe on this one. Sutter came in to last year knowing the Flames could only go up. Alot of guys overacheived, Kipper came out of nowhere, and they went to the finals. Now, I want to see what he does when the team can only go down. They've lost their number one center and are having trouble locking up their other two stars. Kipper might very well show he was a one-year wonder, and I think it's obvious Iginla can't carry the team.

Lowe, OTOH, has been on both sides, and done very well. He lost Marchant, lost Comrie, lost Niinimaa, but he still kept everything competitive. The Dvorak deal was pure genius, and then he got Nedved for Valiquette and some other guy, and didn't pay a cent of Nedved's contract.

Sutter hasn't gone through what Lowe has, mainly the Comrie fiasco. While you can't exactly say Lowe handled it well, he did gain Robbie Schremp and Jeff Woywitka from it. I'm really interested in seeing what Sutter would do in this situation.

Really, I don't want to vote, because I want to see what Sutter does when he can only go down, but I'm gonna vote, mainly to make Lowe look better.

Sutter better than Lowe. But it's just one season.

Sutter. But of course that's only based on one season.

Am I the only one who isn't impressed by what Lowe has managed to do? He stole away Brewer and York from the NY area clubs. The Nedved deal was a freebie.

But at the same time he bungled the Comrie situation to a point where I felt that it became a distraction for the Oil and might have just cost them the playoffs. He got absolutely nothing for Doug Weight who was the best Oiler in the last 7 years or so. Granted Raffi Torres turned out decently and has a good future, but Lowe traded their #1 d-man for him and now it looks like that it's the blueline (and goaltending) that cost the Oilers last year.

Yes he's had fiscal restraints to work under and has managed to keep the club fairly competitive (2 playoff berths in 4 years is fairly respectable I suppose). It just seems like that Lowe makes one great move and then one lousy move that counteracts his great move.
