Leave Lowe alone

Lay off Kevin Lowe! 

As a diehard Oilers fan, it is sickening to see so much criticism of Lowe in the past few months. 

Ya, he may have broken an “unwritten code” by signing Dustin Penner to an offer sheet, but it was the only choice he had.  We can’t attract free agents to our city and that was the route to go.

It was a gutsy act by one of the best GM’s we have ever seen.  Lowe is in front of a firing squad every day, and every day a new media member is pointing the finger at him. 

Lay off.
