    My favorite Kevin Lowe story:

    Lowe was going to trade Mike Comrie to the Ducks for Corey Perry and a 1st round pick, but the deal collapsed when Lowe demanded that Comrie also pay the Oilers $2.5 million to close the deal.

    http://www.cbc.ca/sports/hockey/oilers-comrie-must-pay-for-trade-1.399739

    Instead he got Jeff Woywitka, Rob Schremp and Danny Syvret.


    ----

    Honourable mentions:

    1) "things that weren't meant to be public but agents leak things don't apply to Kevin when he's complaining publicly about 32 year old Michael Nylander going back on his word, when he wouldn't sign with the Oilers for a 4 year, $22 million contract.

    http://www.canada.com/edmontonjournal/news/sports/story.html?id=80570138-06de-450e-b94e-cd21462ba3a8

    2) months later, refuses to sign Ryan Smyth, the heart and soul of the team who was scoring a point per game, because he didn't think he was worth $5 M/year (i.e., old Michael Nylander money). Trades Smyth for Robert Nilsson, Ryan O'Marra and a 1st round 1 pick in the 2007 draft (Alex Plante)

    3) Chris Pronger wants out of town, and rather than demand he pay the Oilers millions, like he tried with Comrie, or at least wait for a big return, he does what is best for the player and trades him away for a ham sandwich (Lupul, Smid, and 2 draft picks (Nick Ross and Jordan Eberle)

    4) Nuking the whole "whats best for the player" atmosphere, Lowe and Tambellini literally try to ruin Sheldon Souray's career.

    Wait, so you're saying Kevin Lowe is and was bad at his current and former jobs?

    I've never heard anything like this before. You've opened my eyes to a whole new world.

  4. What is the point of this thread? It's pretty public knowledge that Kevin Lowe is the Mike Milbury. Guy is a buffoon, nothing new here.

    Lowe is an idiot, but to say that return was a bad return is crazy. Lupul had just scored 40 goals in his rookie and sophomore year as at 19 and 20. Smid was a blue chip defensive prospect. That isn't a "ham sammich" for a guy that was publicly demanding a trade.

    Is there a useless thread on the main board or is there only the one in the off topic forum?

    Or maybe we have a full subforum of "The Edmonton Oilers disgust me and all fans of the NHL."

    We can put all the "Value of "Insert crappy underperforming Oiler here" to _____ team." proposal threads in that subforum too.

    He forgot to state which league. Cause it definitely isn't the NHL.

    One shop, one sign on the road? Not sure where you were going with this. Although if there were two subways that would be two more than NHL goalies the Oilers have.

    If there's something he didn't do that horrible at it was the Pronger trades. I think he did alright on both.

    Other than the fluke cup run he's been trash.
