Kukla's Korner Hockey

Several hockey pundits and bloggers have echoed Burke’s words, accusing Lowe of screwing up the player salary structure with his inflated offers for Penner and his earlier attempt to sign Buffalo’s Thomas Vanek.
Lowe has also been called hypocritical for engaging in the same wild spending that big-market teams under the previous labor agreement engaged in which once threatened small-market clubs like the Oilers.
Regardless of the criticism, Lowe is doing what he’s entitled to do under the collective bargaining agreement. Sure, the offers to Penner and Vanek were pricey, but Lowe has the available cap space, the willingness to use it, and offered what he believed would be enough to pry those players away from their respective teams.
