from the Edmonton Journal,
A frustrated Lowe says the Oilers are thinking of hiring a “concierge” to look after player needs in the future, but he can’t understand why free agents won’t sign here.
He acknowledges the travel out west is harder than in the east, but he says a third of the league’s teams travelled more miles than the Oilers last year. He also knows some players don’t want to play in Canada.
At this point, Lowe’s Plan B could be to go after other teams’ Group 2 free agents with offer sheets, like 43-goal scorer Thomas Vanek or big winger Dustin Penner or centre Zach Parise, all young kids with huge upside.
