More Than The Money

from the Vancouver Province,
"This validates us as a franchise in the NHL again," Lowe said in a private moment on Saturday, shortly before the Oilers took another step toward their impossible dream. "It wasn't the hardcore [Oilers] fans but I think the casual fans and sponsors thought the Oilers can never win. "What's important is what's happening within our own market. The fans were still supporting the team but I think that without this kind of run, we'd have trouble holding their attention. There's a lot made about the revenue but it's the consumer confidence and the reinvestment in the branding that's important to us."
