From Terry Jones at the Edmonton Sun,
Today Lowe expects to land a veteran who he figures will create a bit of a buzz.
“I’m trying to land a bigger one, no question, but this one is a good player,” he said in a telephone interview from Columbus last night.
“I’m learning not to hold my breath, but we’ve actually agreed to it,” he said of the pending deal.
“The thing is, it’s tied to somebody else,” he said of a third team involved.
Lowe worked to the wire trying to pull off a deal to move up in the draft but watched it come undone.
“I wanted to move up,” he said of picking even higher than the sixth where the Oilers chose Gagner.
“We went down to the final minute before the draft started with three teams involved. We were even walking up to the trade desk when one team started not to do it,” he said.
