Kevin Lowe has some "mad money.'' But as mad as he is right now and as infuriated as Edmonton Oiler fans may be, Lowe isn't ready to kick his dog and go out and spend it yet. "Last August we knew we'd want to add something,'' said the GM of the money he left himself under the Oilers' budget with the new collective bargaining agreement and the new NHL salary cap. "We knew we'd be able to add something during the season. We didn't know if it would be defence or to add goal scoring.'' The idea, he admits, was to wait a while longer, let the hockey team settle to get a complete and accurate reading, and make the right decisions. "You don't want to make moves based on a game like we just watched,'' he said of the 7-1 debacle against the Colorado Avalanche. "We will make changes,'' said Lowe.
