An organizational milestone as important as this deserves its own thread.

Details are sketchy. Apparently there is a Kevin Lowe based event, labelled a “roast” coming up soon. There are certainly no other reasons to be celebrating the man who once wore Kris Russell’s number.

I’d be in favour of a parade, with the understanding that Kevin himself isn’t invited.



You can't always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you just might find, you can get a lottery pick.

From what I understand, Kevin Lowe will be this year's honoree (roastee?) at this charitable event that honored Barrie Stafford last year/

Perhaps the burns will cut so deep that Lowe's ego won't allow him to continue on in a hockey related role?

I'm actually surprised Lowe would subject himself to this. I wonder what people will be able to come up with. Better be some 2 tiers of fans and I know about winning stuff in there.

I swear to the man upstairs (if you believe in that stuff) that I heard this on a podcast. I’m relistening to pods ive listened to the last week today (which the wife and kids are super pumped about). I just can’t remember which pod it was.

Besides balding and not accepting it, what else do they have on Lowe? He’s a god. A warrior on the ice. A genius off of the ice. Even his offspring are next level. His wife?

Nada. Boring roast. Maybe he will just take the podium and roast all of the plebs who tried to replace him?https://media.giphy.com/media/YqL8CjKdlWFCEOk6WV/giphy-downsized-large.gif
