I thought this letter sounded a lot like another letter from earlier in the playoff drought:
Quote:

Hi, this is Kevin Lowe.

After a very eventful week around the hockey club, I wanted to take a moment and communicate to you, our most valued customers, our continued commitment to success.

As I stated last week, our hockey club will always do what we feel is in the best interest of our fans, and in the best interest of building a Stanley Cup championship team here in Oil Country.

Right now, we have a core group of veteran players and a wealth of emerging young talent. Last week’s trade brought us two more young players in Robert Nilsson and Ryan O’Marra, and another first round draft choice in this year’s NHL draft. They will join players like Pouliot, Jacques, Stortini, Brodziak, and Schremp, just to name a few, as potential members of a championship Oilers club. Certainly, along the way, we will add to our roster through trades and free agency when the right opportunities are there, now that we have the resources to do so. Make no mistake; our plan is to return the Stanley Cup to Edmonton.

We have an exciting future ahead of us all, and we look forward to sharing it with you.

Thanks again for your ongoing support of Oilers Hockey.

Can we start a Kickstarter to have that as a billboard outside Oilers HQ!?

One guy is still in the NHL, having a fine career. And the Oil traded him cause the coach (now GM!) didn't like his attitude.

Painful window into the great hockey minds we have steering the ship.

With this letter, have we entered something akin to the Ballard zone where the owner really thinks only he knows whats best.....even if its just hiring old hockey buddies.....whatever?

Lowe's record speaks for itself. There is little to defend.

A former golden child during the first post-Pronger rebuild.
A career AHLer.
A draft pick that turned into Alex Plante, a pylon who bruises like a peach.
A guy who they thought was so good he was worth skipping Zach Parise for.
A failed power forward.
Huggy Bear.
A serviceable two-way player who now haunts us on the Wild.
A guy who fell so low in the draft after being ranked so highly by central scouting, and only the Oilers were foolish enough to take him.

There was also the apology letter to the fans of the Springfield Falcons for dropping a deuce in their rink for two years and a promise of a better year #3.

Fun Falcons Fact: Year 3 with the Oilers was just as bad.

This thread should have a warning label, you need Pepto before you read. I'm feeling nauseous.
