Did Lowe, at any point, think about enforcing the final four years of the contract and playing hardball with Pronger? "I definitely thought about it, but it wasn't to be resistant," he answered. "It was more with a view to maximizing our return. If I needed to do that, I would have been glad to do and been comfortable doing it. But I know Prongs well enough that I don't think, at any point, he would have come back to play. He would have just ridden it out. It would have been realistically too hard for him, after demanding this, to then come back and play. It just wasn't going to happen." Even with Lupul signed, the Oilers' payroll stands at about $38 million, leaving Lowe enough wiggle room if he needs to make a move down the road.more
