Reflecting on the Dustin Penner Deal

From Robert Tychkowski at the Edmonton Sun,

Much ado, it turns out, about nothing.

“It’s just so typical of how people jump to conclusions,” Edmonton’s general manager said yesterday in a telephone interview from the World Championships.

Lowe took enormous heat at the time of the deal, and was forced to defend himself during every subsequent attack from Burke.

Now that the draft order is complete (except for 27, 28, 29 and 30, depending on how the final four play out), and the evidence is there in black and white, there has to be a sense of vindication. Unfortunately there’s no undoing the bad blood and the black mark the the feud left on Burke, Lowe and the NHL.
