I have one question to kevin Lowe, Why did'n't you pick up Bryzgalov off waivers? After last nights debacle I think its written all over the wall that Rolosons's best days are long behind him. The letang goal was as soft as it gets and if Edmonton wants to win games they are going to have to play Garon alot. Roloson's inconsistant play was all to remonnisant of last years depressing finnish to the season. Roloson has to make that save at that particular point in the game. That goal defalted the team. The Oilers were 2 points behind the Coyotes when Bryzgalov was placed on waivers. Lowe could have picked him up and either pulled off a salary dumping trade or place Rolly on waivers. The Goalie tandom of Garon and Bryzgalov would be one of the best in the league. The cap space saved would have been about 2million for the season. Im almost positive that Lowe got a call from Gretzky camp and agreed not to pick up Bryzgalov. In M.P.O after telling the hockey world that he has no friends and that he will do anything to make his team better I do not understand why he never pulled that move off. I think the same reason he never signed Lundquist to a offer sheet. I know that sather pulled a fast one and waived him so he was untouchable to an offer sheet while negotiating but he did that after the Vanek offer sheet. This means that Lundquist was available before that. Sather being smart took him out of availabilty but why that wasn't his first choice for an offer sheet is beyond me. Newyork was so cap strapped at the time there is no way that sather could have matched. Again Lowe put a personal friendship before the Oilers organization. What do you Oiler Fans think about this ? I'm interested in everyones opinion on this. I think lowe is a heart and soul guy but I also think he is a hypocrite.
