    13 years
    9 years missed playoffs
    4 years playoffs made
    In only one year has the team won a playoff series out of 13, the miracle cup run with Roloson stealing a couple of series and Pronger at his best.

    Essentially he has had one good year as GM and even then I'm suspicious on how much he had to do with it.

    Things could have even been worse if some of his brain child moves actually worked out (Heatley, Nylander)

    This has been the one constant with this team. A guy with zero accountability running the show and thoroughly deluded into thinking he is doing a good job. He has been so used to be lofted softballs by the media over the years he goes off on a wild rant about tiers of fans and his 6 rings if even one media guy asks a tough question.

    Forget the goalies.
    Forget the GM.
    Forget the coach.

    Until we have any accountability and or competence from the top of this organization we are going no where. Too bad Katz is just a pure fan boy that gobbles up whatever is fed to him. People used to laugh at Wang and Snow, Snyder and Holmgren, Our combo is worse.

    Agreed. Until any of us wins 6 rings, it's unfair of us to comment.

    That is so funny every time I watch it. He couldn't help, but add in his two cents.

    Lets say Lowe comes out tonight and says he is done. Then what?

    Sometimes I think it is too easy to just blame everything on Lowe. If Lowe quits tonight, what will happen?

    Will the Gm change? Coach change?

    Or is the big thing everybody questions is that possibly Lowe has Katz's ear and is giving him bad advice?

    Yes he does.

    He might know more about losing now though.

    Yes, in a totally half hearted way. After not being able to control his yap.

    This is the most important one. All other parts of the team have been shaped by him. All of it.

    Lowe gets virtually no blame in the grand scheme of things. None from the media and very little from the fans if you look at this forum regularly. We all talk about Renney or tambo or mact or macgregor or eakins.

    It has been seven years of no playoffs and you're going to get impatient now???

    Typical tier 2 fan.

    Exactly, the guy who should have fired Lowe long ago is the one to blame.

    Lowe has to go its as simple as that. Until then the oilers will be an old boys club and our failure will never change. Kevin Lowe is an arrogant ***** and has ruined any respect I had for him from his accomplishments as a player.

    Tier 1 fans get upset over 10 years of missed playoffs. We still got 3 years of rebuilding to go.

    "Is it me?"

    Yes, Kevin. Yes it is, as sad as it is to say because I know you care about this franchise more than most.

    I could have sworn it was Horcoff's fault.

    Amazing that people on this board still thumb their nose at Burke who has a far, far better overall track record and rebuilt the Leafs in a shorter time span with the benefit of zero top 3 picks.

    For me, the biggest bullet we ever dodged was the Vanek offer sheet.

    I can't even imagine what would've happened if Buffalo had decided not to match.

    One playoff appearance so far.

    I've said numerous times that Burke cannot find a decent goalie and that is what we need most right now.

    I hated most of what he did before the 'rebuild'. One year after the salary cap in which he was gifted pronger, made some nice moves in getting roloson, spacek, that other dman...name started with a T. Other than that it's been pure disaster. But what you say is true, I am a tier 2 fan.

    Kevin Lowe handed a 3rd line plugger top dollar to go along with obscene term because his owner promised to spend to the cap and they utterly failed in all free agency and trade moves. As for Horcoff, seen his stat line now that he is truly getting 3rd line minutes and 3rd line linemates and no pp time in Dallas? 6 games, zero goals , zero assists, -4

    You forgot Vanek. Imagine Ebb's, MPS, Hall and RNH on Buffalo.

    Also, who really built the team that he took to the playoffs in 2000 to 2003. It wasn't KLowe, those were Sather built teams.

    I've said since the beginning this guy destroyed the Oilers, and there is no hiding from it. His so called Chicago/Pitts style rebuild is clearly more a NYI, Florida style rebuild.
