The Solution to our Problems!

I had an epiphany: was there one moment in time that sent this franchise down the path of suck that they've been on for so many years now? It turns out that there is - the hiring of Kevin Prendergast. He was hired in 1990 to replace Barry Fraser as head scout (when, if you think about it, was kind of like replacing Lenin with Stalin), then somehow was promoted to asst. GM & director of player personnel. Since his hire, the team has slid further & further into mediocrity, with no forseeable change. Maybe, just maybe, he's some kind of witch doctor that's put a curse on the team, & if he's fired the hex will be lifted & the team will rise to its former glory. On the other hand, maybe it's just me...

Thoughts?

I cannot believe you cannot see the obvious. The Oilers began to suck the moment Kevin Lowe stepped into the GM chair. Lowe has done more harm to this team than anyone else in the entire organization. And you are stuck with him because Katz is a Lowe fan.

Glad that Harvey's tongue finally stopped by to tell us what is wrong with our team. Kevin Lowe has given his entire being into trying to do what is right for this team, nobody is perfect. If you are looking for a scapegoat you are barking up the wrong tree.

Unfortunately, that's also the cause of our problems.
