Garbage.

Lowe is not the problem. Watch them play and see for yourself.

That is all.

'Lowe's been rebuilding the Oilers for eight years
They're still losing most games they play
They've restarted their rebuild like three freaking times
They restarted again yesterday'

Fire Kevin Lowe. Hopefully hire a person with no connection to the Oilers. See an outside view of the team, and mass firings.

Competent management ahead.

That's the hope anyways.

Personally, it's not about the immediate improvement anymore. It's the principle of his record that should lead to his hopefully eventual termination. He has been at the helm of this terrible team through ALL of the suck, and the record shows it.

Why should anyone in his position still hold that job, especially after admitted faults of ineptitude, and PR debacles like the "six rings" press conference.

He's out of touch, and it's all seemingly gone to his head.

Ah, I don't need to go any more into it. It's obvious that he should be fired.

I believe if Kevin Lowe is gone and replaced with someone who doesn't just hire old friends with no experience we will be much better off, yes. We just traded a goalie who showed great flashes here and eventually collapsed after losing all confidence. He goes to Nashville, a team with fantastic coaching and known for developing goaltenders. Trotz says Dubnyk has terrible habits from Edmonton. Who's the goalie coach in Edmonton? Frederik Chabot. Chabot has never coached a single team before joining the Oilers. Kelly Buchberger and Steve Smith. Also two of Kevin Lowe's old friends who have never coached a team in their lives yet they are handed assistant coaching roles. Craig MacTavish, another one of Lowe's old pals has never had any management experience, yet he is handed the management job here. While MacT has actually done a half decent job here, my point still stands.

If Trotz claims Dubnyk has terrible habits why shouldn't we believe everyone here has bad habits? We are seeing it on the ice and it's very easy to spot the reason. Because Kevin Lowe does not look for the best hockey man for the job, he looks to hire old friends and have a great time as President of the club. He is totally unaware of how to run a hockey team. Wayne Gretzky wasn't a great coach. He's the best player to ever play. You can't just expect someone that has played the game to be a good teacher. That is what is going on here.

Even when the team is playing their hearts out like they did against Vancouver, bad habits make them lose anyways. If they were being taught properly they wouldn't be in this position.

Everything goes back to Lowe. He is the one calling the shots and hiring these people.

Let's not get into the Lowe debate again guys. Let's just enjoy this parody of the song from the most emotional of all of the Batman movies.

Look at the players he drafted during his near-decade of management...

Andrew Cogliano-Sam Gagner-Jordan Eberle
Magnus Paajarvi-Matthew Lombardi-Ales Hemsky
Brad Winchester-Jarett Stoll-Kyle Brodziak
Jean Francois Jacques-Rob Schremp-Zach Stortini
(Liam Reddox, Anton Lander)


Matt Greene-Jeff Petry
Ales Pisa-Taylor Chorney
Theo Peckham-Mathieu Roy
(Danny Syvret)

Jussi Markkanen
Devan Dubnyk
Jeff Drouin-Deslauriers

He had some gritty teams and made a run at the playoffs but really he basically freaked out and abandoned being a GM to tank for talent. That plan has backfired....the fact is he should have been replaced instead he was promoted to oversee the next management group follow his scorched earth rebuild....which is currently a total mess.

So we suck because we're icing a bad team, and the blame belongs on the bad players that got put out there, and not the head guy who put those players out there? Right...

For people that didn't feel like clicking the link, Harrison Mooney (one of the puck daddy authors) wrote and recorded a song about Lowe. Surprising well done. Dude has some singing skills.

No worries at all.

See the YouTube URL that you posted? Take the the remaining portion of the URL after the = sign in the link. So in this case it's:

UVNTswKwkFc

(Again, it's after the = sign in the URL)

Simply put that between [YT ] (so it would go here) [/YT ]

Just take out the space after the 'T' and the ']' when you post it, and you should be golden

Hopefully that helps!
